    I feel you. I've had my 17" 2.16 dual core for almost 5 years now and she has been a champ. Honestly, I like the richness of the colors on the glossy screen better. In my work environment glare is really a non issue. General sessions where the lights are low... :)

    If it was me, I would go with MacMall through the Appleinsider links for $2,013.10. :)

    Same here unless your in CA or anywhere else they charge tax then Macconnection with 2% back from ebates would be cheaper.

    I think I will be ordering from Apple with the Military discount + 6% tax (according to my iPad 2 tax rate on my email invoice) + 5% Discover card cashback with the built-in additional year extended warranty & 90 days accident protection.

    Even before the Discover cashback a 15" 2.2 with HR/AG ends up only being ~$30 more than Macmall. So the cashback would almost knock out the tax and makes it even cheaper. :D

    Cool & good for you. :)

    Unfortunately, not everyone has got access to the military discount. :(

    I didn't think I would be able to at first either, but apparently it is good for those who are family members of someone who is either a government employee (current or retired) and/or military (current or retired) according to their terms. My father is retired from both.

    What proof do you have to give to show that you have a family member retired from military service?

    I don't know yet, but will find out soon. I think primarily they are looking for the right URL to the EPP store.
