Well I called today they are soldout and there not getting anymore in! i'm not gonna spend 2,000(2.2GHZ) on a MBP i'm only gonna be a junior in H.S. For College i'll get a pro! The GOOD news is I'll be going down to delaware on Monday with my dad to get my black macbook taxs free and with a goverment discount! so i'll get it for 1400 and get some accesories! What accesories should I get. (don't say applecare my b-day is coming up and I'm getting that for my b-day!) Any accesories you guys recomend?

    I've heard some horrible things about MacMall. You are probably better off buying directly from Apple.

    Buy directly from Apple and get the student benefits (printer, iPod).

    Accessories

    Get a nice but discreet bag to carry it in.
    Get a cloth that sits on your keyboard when u close it so finger oil doesn't get on screen.
    Get "laptop" wipes. Like clorox wipes, but cleanes laptop.
    I HIGHLY recommend a Podium Pad (google it). It elevates bottom of laptop to keep it cooler. Plus, if you spill a drink around the mac, you'll see how it paid for itself. And it's cool because your laptop will be able to swivel :cool:
    I don't like wireless mice / keyboards, but maybe u do. But def a mouse with a wheel and right click.
    Tell us your interests and we'll tell u accessories, ie-
    If u play guitar, Fast Track USB to plug quarter inch into it. Keyboard- 49e keystation midi's right into garage band.
    If yr graphics guy, small wacom tablet, but they're pricey.
    Gamer... I dunno!

    Sorry to get preachy but...
    I hope for your sake you're telling the truth about apple care because apple techs tell me: Thank god for the iBook, it provides 90% of my business. Plastic casing = better chance of moving parts moving more loosly = repairs. Sry macbook owners. Just saying- every iBook owner I knew needed repairs at some point. I'm almost 4 years strong with my titanium (or aluminum?) Powerbook and no probs, and I abuse it! Anyways... if they forget apple care for your b-day, find a way to get it.

    And yes, Thread Title 2.0 :D

    Since your difference in price (between macbook pro and macbook) is $150, have you considered the wireless keyboard and mouse? That comes to $150, but it might only be of interest if you have an external monitor. If you do, that might be a good choice.

    Wow. At least now I have something to think about when I go running this morning instead of the usual "I hate this...this sucks...I want to vomit" routine I have rolling through my head.:eek:

    Jeeez, it was just a suggestion. I didn't expect a temper-tantrum.

    If you put a request into one of the Mods, they will provide you with a link to Thread Title 1.1, I think there might even be an update.

    AppleFan8, they're trying to point out that "Nooooo!" is not a very descriptive title for your thread. Given the question that you asked in your post, you should have probably called this thread "Recommended accessories for new MBP?"

    techlover828, you're looking for a guitar preamp. Possibly an active DI box, though that might only bring you to mic levels, you might need a line level input. If that's the case then you need some kind of mixer too. Either way it's not as simple as just a physical adaptor, unfortunately.

    Aww you spoiled the fun :(.

    Anyways, APPLEFAN8: I could give you a long list of accessories, most of which you're not going to ever use. If you want our recommendations, be a bit more specific to what are you going to do with your new MacBook. A.k.a: I know juniors at HS wont be writing much (lol), so if you like the integrated keyboard, you wont need an external one, but maybe you like simple games (not that you're going to get much off the MacBook), so you might need an ext. mouse, etc.

    You guys are harsh on the kid...

    If you're watching your $, why get the Black Macbook at a 40% premium over the base white?

    Ram is fairly cheap and you should do it yourself (upped my macbook from 1gb stock to 2gb for $60 2 months ago). Stock HD is fine, just swap out for a new one later on.
