    Not to really be a jerk, because I only play one on tv, but I hardly consider a 13" MBp owner a wannabe MBP owner.

    But after the student discount and free iPod, this is really a steal!

    I was gonna get a 15 incher to replace my SR MBP, but I think I will get the 13 inch. Probably will go get it tomorrow.

    Other than screen size and physical dimensions, what are the differences between the 13" & 15" MBPs?

    Processor speed and graphics card (on all but the base 15" model)

    Add me to the 13 inch owners list^^

    Speakers. And maybe the screen on the 15" is still a bit better...not much else though. You're basically paying that 200 for a bigger screen/slightly higher resolution.

    Thanks, guys!

    I was wondering if anyone else was excited about now being a "pro" user. I plan on buying a 13" macbook pro this month. It will be my first macbook pro! Wow, call me crazy, but I'm very exited that the screen bezel is going to say MacBook Pro. Hahaha, and for less money than before! Apple is amazing.

    Exactly what I'll be doing in a month or two :D

    Except I'm gonna dish out the extra $70 for the 16 GB ipod.

    The "pro" label shouldn't be a big deal. Mac users who've owned many Apple laptops have moved from PowerBook to iBook to MB/MBP/MBA for different reasons. But I guess this is the first time the price difference has been so little ($200)?

    If They squeezed a 9600M GT in there, i would be very jealous :p

    My 'Classic' MacBook Pro is just fine, but i think Apple have made a good move today.

    I think its a smart marketing move on apple's part. They kept trying to differentiate the two models but with the unibody line, it was increasingly difficult. If you can't beat them, join them and that's what apple did.

    I'm getting it as soon as I see some reviews and sell my MBP. Apple has fixed all the things wrong with the 2.0 MB (crappy screen, no firewire, no backlit keyboard) and I'm really excited to get it! I want to get the very low end.
