Ok so im planning to buy my first MBP for school in the fall shortly. I'm aware that they could be updated soon, but i wont have the money together for about another month. If its updated by then, so be it. Anyways, i would rather buy my MBP at an apple store, as theres one within 20 minutes, but im not sure about their stock. I want to buy the base 2.4 15" MBP, but i would like to get the larger 250GB hd, as i will run XP in boot camp for both games and autocad. I also store a lot of media and would like to have as much as possible on the go. Anyways, i'm wondering if they would have this in stock for me, or if im going to have to special order it online? My main concern about this leads me to my next question. I've heard that it i'snt uncommon for MBPs to come with defects, such as dead pixels, failed hard drives, artifacts on the screen, etc. If im paying 2k for a notebook, id like it to be perfect. So first of all, will the salesmen at the store open the box and everything at the store with me and let me look over it before buying it? If so, what is everything that i should look for? Id hate to come home with a dead pixel and have apple refuse the exchange it. Thanks!
