    Have driven myself mad the last few days trying to work if:

    A) I should get a new MBP Pro and pass on my old MB to my parents.

    B) Should I get the MBP Pro now or wait till January when it will probably get some kind of upgrade.

    If in doubt say yes is my philosphy so I just ordered:

    15" MB Pro
    2.4 Ghz
    4GB Ram
    160GB, 7200rpm, hardrive
    glossy screen

    Managed to get a 14% student discount :)

    only downside is they are looking at 3 WEEKS !!! damn it.

    You ordered 4 gigs of RAM from Apple?!? How much did that jack up the price? I considered buying a memory upgrade from Apple but it's just so much cheaper at Newegg and I haven't had any problems with it.

    You could have used the money saved buy 3rd party RAM, accessories and still have some money left!

    MBP is an amazing machine, you'll fall in love with it from day one. Definitely should have gotten 3rd party RAM though.

    its true - you can get the ram cheaper. But then you have keep the orginial apple ram incase you every have to put it back in when you get the machine repaired... But to be honest I could bothered to read up about which is the best ram etc - basically I'm lazy :D

    Here's hoping there aren't any of the "yellow band" screen problems I've been reading about.

    As I have to wait three weeks, what would be cool is they come out with a release date for Leopard and give me a free upgrade --- well, I can dream....

    So is your MBP still on order or if you've recieved it, if so how long did it take from ordering to delivery ???

    You do occassionaly hear stories about 3rd party ram not working as it should - so therefore I think its not JUST lazynes to order the overpriced apple ram.;)

    I can see I shall be haunting www.apecode.com for the next 3 weeks - just like I did when I ordered a Macbook - these damn computers are real time killers

    Wow. I still can't believe that people (whether they have a lot of money or not) still order RAM from Apple. The additional cost can be used for other things. But hey, to each their own.

    To the OP: As already mentioned, you are going to love your new MBP. Computing life is going to change as you know it. Have fun.

    Dude, all I have to say is that you are one rich SOB. :) Over $3000 for a computer? Man, I can only dream of that. You seriously should not have spend $630 on apple upgrade ram. but, ah, whatever, its your (ridiculous amount of) money. ;)
