    My boss is getting me a Macbook, he has offered to pay for an entire 13" MBP (I found a 13" 2.6 C2D for the max he is willing to go on the refurb section)

    But even better... I was able to come up with some $$ to put towards it and if he says YES I am going to order the 15" i5 today!!! I am just waiting on his reply (since he has to cover it all on the account)

    Besides my iMac (for design work) I have an OLD Powerbook G4 that I am going to donate once I get my new one!! This is going to be a HUGE upgrade for me :)

    Either way, I will have a sweet sweet new Unibody-MBP and the best part is I already have an Intel X-25 SSD to pop-in it once I get the beast!

    Will it belong to the company? I only ask since you are looking to put money into it (to get the 15")

    No it will be mine outright, this is basically instead of an end-of-year bonus (which i'll gladly take!)

    How do you like your i7?? I will prob. opt for the i5 as that is as high as I'd like to go right now... but I work on an i7 iMac and its sweet :)

    Pulled the trigger and got the 15" MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core i5.

    This just made my christmas :) and I have a trip to ATL coming next week so it's perfect timing too.

    Well, at least you'll have one whole week with MBP, enjoy it while it lasts.

    Does this make ANY sense to anybody else at all? Or is it just me?

    He was suggesting it would get stolen in ATL. Possibly racially motivated.


    I've had my MBP stolen in New Jersey, never ATL.

    Racially motivated? I'm sorry, I didn't realize basing my statements off pure facts (Atlanta has one of the highest crime rates in America) meant I was being racist.

    Congrats... You will love the trackpad. That's about the only thing imo that is major. Everything else is basic Apple install/uninstall. Sorry I'm still a fan of Tiger 10.4 . The removal of SMS in Address book :(

    Makes perfect sense to me. Nobody vacations in ATL except for...:eek:
    People have a hard enough time trying to escape that hell-hole.

    Why is it that people are so quick to shout: Racist!...? It's just a really, really crappy city.

    Look at the demographics of the city. Of course it's racially motivated.
