    I will return my 15" and put in an order after the weekend.

    Why are you asking? Do you know something we don't know? Hmm!

    :eek:

    Yeah, if it was $500 I would...$3000 is a little different. :p

    Tomorrow we find out if we're getting a house this year or not, if no house then that means new toys for me...if house that means PBJ for the rest of the year and no Macbook pro. :-(

    If you have the money, I'd get the house; prices are low right now.

    Yeah that's why we're looking but we're getting married too and we're not sure if we can swing both in one year. I tried to postpone the wedding...that didn't go over well. :(

    We've spent the last 7 months paying off all debt...I'm not about charge more especially when I have a 4 month old macbook that works fine. :)

    And that's why our economy is in the crapper. Not a smart idea.

    if you already have something that works - save the money for your house. That shouldn't even be a question.

    haha... I hate to say it.. but more of a reason not splurge on something personal

    I'm thinking about it, but at 4-6 week wait for the matte, I'll probably leave it for a while.

    I really wanna see a proper pic of the 17" matte one, I couldn't find any on the Apple website. Only pic I've seen is the one that was shown in the keynote.

    I agree. Unless you are a pro and make money off your notebook then you can justify the purchase. When the economy recovers houses won't be cheaper but notebooks will always lose its value later.

    I say wait it out first. Because of things like the new battery and new chassis this is technically a Rev A product. Lets let the super-excited-need-to-have-it- now-folks beta test it first. :)

    I'm ordering the 17" at full spec. (except the 8GB of RAM, I'll wait until it drops in price.)

    Can't wait, this will be my first Mac :]

    you have to be kidding.

    So if you don't get the house you will piss away 3k on a computer that could put you closer to getting you a house?

    and people wonder why so many people have money problems.

    when it came to getting my first house everything was cut that wasn't required. This meant the primo cell plan, the over channeled cable setup, and such. A house is worth more that crap that won't last but a few years, then again we can see the sensibility of people by looking at the cars at apartment complexes.
