    I've called two Apple Stores, and they both say they have no EPA for the new MacBook Pros. Anyone have any info for when they are hittings stores?

    Thanks!

    I was talking with a friend of mine who works at an Apple store, and he said they would arrive either Thursday or next week sometime, but I've also talked to a friend that lives in Victoria, who has already tried one out.

    I would venture to guess they'll be set up in all stores by the end of the week.

    I checked in at the downtown Vancouver store during lunch time today and the guy's response was "we should get them in a couple of days"... great...

    Really? The new ones? I called Fairview soon after they announced them, and they said they didn't know when they'd be out.

    Seems Apple really demoted to the status of cumkleenex. I dont get why Sydney gets the MBP's on floor ready to go the day after keynote and so does the U.S but us humble canadians (EH??? ABOOT?) get it a week later. this is faggotry at its best.

    Actually, Sydney got them the day OF the keynote. Keep in mind that Wed here is basically Tues in Cali.

    Very well put! I found 'cumkleenex' to be particularly apt haha

    Who gives a ****? You can wait a couple of days - go read a book.

    I hate to break it to you, but the price is pretty reasonable given that our loonie is currently trading at 84 cents (not even close to on par). If you read a book every now and then, perhaps you would know what state the economy is in :D

    As an alternative, go fill a kleenex - that should keep you occupied for while.

    forget about kleenex im filling some ones hole bud, your right about the exchange rate, but apart from you being a total macfag, we should receive laptops at the same time imo.
