    It's a 2.8 ghz unibody with 9600gt and 6mb of l2 cache, but they make no mention of the expresscard?

    I'm assuming it's the prev gen umbp(which I want). Which "tier" was this when originally released? Did the old umbp's have 320gb hdd's on their 2.8ghz models?

    Old model

    New ones support 8gb

    ok well I think I'll jump on this one then. Really 6gb of ram for me is fine somewhere in the future. My only other dilemma was missing an extra 2.5 hours of battery life. Hope I don't miss it too much!

    I don't think you will unless you can get all your mobile work done in roughly 5-6? hours. I think I'd rather have a swappable battery. That way you can carry as many extras as you need and won't have to worry about running out.

    New York. The state, not the toilet.
    This model is 2 "speed bumps" ago, from the initial unibody launch. Then, I believe, it was going for $2799 new. What a change just a few months make.......

    Well I pushed go on it a few minutes ago. 2 'speed bumps' ago or not, I feel like I got a deal.

    Time to stock up on batteries I guess? :)

    Even though I've heard pros and cons to various aspects about this model, I like the extra speed and gpu it offered for the same price. Hope the screen isn't too bad?
