I've been thinking about switching for a long time, and I finally made the move! I've been a lifelong Windows user but used the G4 back in school. Never really felt the need to switch until now when I recently re-discovered Leopard, iLife etc. So I'm super-excited. Besides, I'm a UI Designer by profession so it kind of helps as well! So, for those who are in the market for a MBP I got an awesome deal from JR.com. I bought the 15.4" 2.53 Ghz, 4gb ram version (I know the new ones are 2.66 ghz but this one was being discounted). I asked JR if they would price match it with MacConnection who was selling it for 2169 (after mail-in rebates) and they did. So I got it for 2169 - no taxes (CA) and free shipping. On top of that I had $500 worth of gift cards from my citi thank you network which I could use at JR. Net net, it cost me less than $1700! Glad to be part of the Mac community now!
