    Hello all, I am going to purchasing my Macbook Pro through the college student purchase program. I am planning to get the 17" 3.06Ghz 4GB MBP model. I am just getting the weak 5400 RPM hard drive because I plan to buy the Intel X-25M SSD. I do have a couple questions that I hope can be answered here:

    1. Are there any other apple rebates currently going on right now?
    2. When replacing the SSD do I just drop it in and load up the OS? Or do I need to format it in a special way? Do I need any other connections?
    3. Anti-Glare vs. Glossy, the age old debate. I will mainly be working inside and I will be working with graphic and code development. Which should I get?

    I know the last one is an opinion based question, but I value it :)

    1. Buy a Mac, get a free iPod. The free printer deal might still be going too.
    2. Put in the new drive and the Leopard DVD. The installation program will format it.
    3. Look at both in a store if possible. Otherwise look at many other thread addressing the issue on this forum.
