    Should have waited to get my 17" MBP got it about a month ago, guess I am SOL getting an upgrade hu?

    Yeah you won't be able to exchange it for free.

    I wouldn't feel too bad though. The updates are marginal to the 17" and you probably wouldn't notice them anyways.

    Do they even exchange at all? I mean I bought the 2.4 unibody MBP less than 3 months ago...and am pretty ticked off right now...I mean double the RAM, larger HD, SD slot, and 2.66 for the same 1999...come on Apple!

    Do I even have a case?

    I would be happy to upgrade for a price of course, I figure if they were to hit me with the normal 15% restocking charge it would pay for itself as there is a $300 price drop ;-) Suppose I should call them just to see, can't hurt.

    i got mine back in april and im still satisfied with it.
    my only discernment with the upgrade was the price drop compared to the price for the baseline model back then.

    I can easily upgrade the harddrive to 500Gb (of course for an additional 89-99$) but the speed difference to me is very marginal if it was say standard 3Ghz and upto 3.2 +500GB + price drop id be alittle irked.

    I wouldnt worry too much about it at this point, I say the original uMBP 17" are still and will be some very great powerful machines.
