I have been lurking on this forum for months learning heaps while waiting to buy my first Mac - waiting first for Leopard, then SR, then LED. I have to admit that I was waiting for vista until I read the review of the MB on CNet and have since learned the error of my ways. I ordered the base model MPB within minutes of the launch. Very exciting to hit the refresh button and get the picture of the new MBP instead of the sticky! I went with no BTO options, thinking that would be the quickest way to get hold of the machine, but it is still a two week wait for delivery here in Australia. Thanks very much for all of the advice and tips I have picked up on the forum - all of my questions have been answered many times over (matte vs glossy; MB vs MPB etc, etc)! I have gone in for accessories in a big way (based mostly on tips from the forums) - they are all waiting here for the computer to arrive: - Logitech V270 BT mouse - Apple wireless keyboard - Griffin elevator - Airport extreme - Altec Lansing XT1 speakers - Elgato Eye TV and also Toast 8 waiting in its box. No bag yet, but I am thinking the STM Evolution sounds good. I am delighted with the update. I was a bit surprised about the 120g HD on the base model, but I guess that is what they had to do to bring it in at the right price. I figure I can hook my 300g external HD up to the Airport extreme, so I don't need a huge HD in the MBP. Incidentally, because of exchange rate improvements we had a nice AU$300 price drop here - makes the new model look like an absolute steal. Anyone else waiting for one in Oz? I don't know how I am going to survive until the expected delivery date of 22 June.
