I decided to head down to Vogelweh because it was the only AAFES that sold Apple computers nearby. I picked up the 2.4 model. I was really shocked when I went there and compared models... I took the 2.4 and MBP and tried my damn hardest to make the 2.4 screen look "washed out" at viewing angles...and it never occurred - only when viewing from above...but, who in their right mind is going to view something looking directly down at the top of the screen? The MBP was like that as well. The black was identical to the MBP screen and the viewing angles were the same as well. *shrugs* I tried for 15 minutes to make the MB screen look bad in comparison to the MBP and I just couldn't. I haven't opened it yet because I am nervous to do so if a price drop occurs at WWDC (I really only purchased it now because when something is sold out - it is sold out for a long time over here in Germany where I am deployed to) or worse: So, I'm basically back where I am started at. I could wait forever and understand that something bigger and badder will always come out, however I am stuck in a dilemma - if I didn't buy now I run the risk of them not having any in and god knows when they will have any back in...maybe even a month. The other is - since today is the 25th I have 15 days I can return the product open or not to AAFES however, since we are 7 hours ahead the Keynote wouldn't occur until evening our time - which most likely would mean that AAFES would be closed by then... Egh, this really sucks ass (sorry...no other words to describe my frustration).
