    I just picked one up and receive one with the anti glare screen model 9CB7 and it is freaking gorgeous!

    Best deal out there, get one before supplies run out!

    Where is it noting 2.3?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't realize Apple had a separate part number for the 2.3GHz.

    For some reason, Microcenter does not note the speed of the CPU but it is the 2.3GHz i7. All the antiglare models came with the 2.3GHz which was the higher clocked from the 2.2GHz (standard) at that time.

    But I can guarantee you that it is the 2.3GHz i7 with the 750GB HDD (I think its the 7200rpm, I'll check later).

    All the antiglare models did not come with the 2.3. Microcenter states that the computer is antiglare, but it also says the resolution is 1440x900, which is the standard resolution screen. I know that the only way to get the antiglare is in the hi-res, so id check with microcenter to confirm.

    The 15" hi resolution models that you pick up at the apple store were all 2.3GHz. The only way to get a 2.2GHz and a smaller hdd with the anti glare screen was to order it from online as a CTO model. I know this as 100%. Also, on that link in the description, it lists the macbook pro's display as anti glare screen and the only anti glare screens in the 15" that apple offers is the hi resolution screen.

    Some apple stores stocked the other configurations. And I stated that the anti glare only comes in hi res, but microcenter lists the antiglare, and a resolution of 1440x900, so I'm just saying id call to confirm which one.

    So which HD comes with it? 7200? Seems like a really low price

    It's 5400. I bought this last week when it was $1700, now I'm a little ticked I didn't wait. Wonder if they pricematch...

    Great find. This is an excellent price. The same configuration goes for $1999 for a refurb from Apple (of course, at that price why not get a 2.2GHz 17" AG refurb?). Can't beat a $400 savings.

    I saw that in an email from them. Great deal. $100 cheaper than the Education discount.


    It's this model

    actually it is the 2.3 ghz, anti-glare hi-res option, 750 (5400) model. it think the refurb price is around $1999, so the price micro center charged is quite a bit below this. anyway, i'm typing on it now after loading it up and it is working great so far. thanks again to the person who started the thread--we needed two for my non-profit company and this really worked out great.

    Just put a Corsair Performance Pro 256GB SSD (Marvell controller) in mine last night, along with upgrading the RAM to 8GB. This thing screams.

    Yeah, that's a great price, even factoring in local tax, and of course, you need a local Microcenter for a "store only" purchase. I forwarded this to a buddy of mine in the DC area (he's reasonably close the VA store).

    Thanks to the OP.

    I just picked up the same machine "used" a few months (basically mint/new) for $1800, though it did have a 7.2K drive, 8GB, an Apple BT KB, Office '11, and a number of other accessories ... plus 2y/8m of remaining Applecare :)

    Fantastic with the HR+AG display, and so far it's been blazing through everything I've thrown at it (as far as I've heard, it hasn't even kicked on the fans[?]).

    I'm just curious, is this Microcenter deal for the early 2011 or late 2011 MBP?

    1GB VRAM 6750M so it's Early 2011. Late has 6770M.

    I've been posting about the deal in as many threads as possible. For the price, I think it's unbeatable. The hi-res option is a must, even the 13" macbook air runs 1440x900. I personally prefer matte as well, so it was a no-brainer for me. I installed a corsair SSD, 8gb of ram, and moved the 750GB drive to the optibay. It now has the startup speed of my air, the power of a pro, and the storage of a pro. Couldn't be happier.

    As of now, i also see a 17" early 2011 for $1700 after taxes too! I'm torn between the two. Only thing that stops me from getting the 17" is the fact that it can't fit in my backpack.

    then get a new backpack :D! You won't regret buying a 17"! My old backpack conveniently wore out after 6 years last spring and when I bought a replacement bag, I made sure to be 17" ready if I should one day purchase a 17" and 80 days later, I was the proud owner of a nice 17" MacBook Pro!

    Haha I went with the 15". I'm too dedicated to my current bag to switch it out.
