    hey

    my brother just ordered a Dell XPS M1330 laptop, and opted for the:

    Free Upgrade to Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T9300
    Offer ends 7/02/2008

    this is the Australia store.. http://dell.com.au/

    me on the other hand, still waiting on a Penryn chip before I order my new MBP, this shows that there is certainly some hope for us!!

    I'm still gonna get a MBP for my first Mac, hopefully it will be up to par. The PC market has upped the ante.

    Yeah...my brother took advantage of that fully loaded M1330 deal last week...it was something like a $700 savings. I definitely got tempted before I bought my Macbook.
