So, my powerbook g4 finally died a couple weeks ago. Last wednesday, I bought a 17" Macbook Pro. I knew I could get the new model if a new one came out, and I needed it for school, so I just bought it then. 17", 1920x1200 hi-res, 250gb hdd, 2.4ghz. I received it Monday, and I loved it. I decided I'd call Applecare just to make sure I wouldn't be charged a 10% restocking fee if new ones came out tuesday, and a nice woman assured me I would be taken care of, and there would be no fee. She said she was making an exception, because customized laptops usually have no return policy, but IF a new one come out, then they do. The next day, the new MBPs came out. They had the 250gb hdd standard, an 8600m gt videocard with 512 mb vram, and a faster processor. Also, my favorite, MULTITOUCH. I called apple as soon as I got home and the man I talked to told me I had to pay a 10% restocking fee. I just told him that I had talked to someone the day before, and he checked the records, and waived the fee. I customized the new MBP with a hi-res display, and it's being shipped today or tomorrow (hopefully). He told me I can continue using the previous MBP until the new one arrives. Now, about the actual computer: it's fast. Crazy fast. It runs Mac OS X better than any computer I've used before, and it runs Windows faster than any computer I've used before. I've played a few games on it (TF2, Portal, COD4), and they run AMAZINGLY. I can run COD4 (a very graphically challenging game) at native resolution (1920x1200), high texture settings, anti-aliasing 4x, and all the "extras" turned on without a single stutter. It's flawless. TF2 runs the same way, as does Portal. I may be able to get Crysis soon, and I'm thinking it may actually run at full res (I wasn't expecting it to). In short: It's a great gaming computer, Apple support rocks, and it's worth every penny.
