    I did, it was an early Christmas present, but a Christmas present nonetheless. I got an unexpected bonus from work, and the microcenter deal was too good to pass up.

    For me the timing could be better. I'll be going away this weeks but I'll need to work remotely, so a laptop is required.

    I have a dell mini 10v, which is actually a nice machine, but using it to manage servers and do my work, was not as easy as I hoped. The small screen was just that small. At least the 13" screen is manageable :)

    I got one! :D I love it. I opened all my gifts...no Macbook...waited around not really disapointed as I didnt think santa was going to bring me a $1500 dollar laptop! Then I looked over and saw my dad carrying the box to my MacBook Pro. I guess my aunt had paid for it and my whole family as well as the guy at the best buy store who I talked to about getting the MacBook Pro knew the entire time...anyways short little story but I love this thing already! I can't wait to put it to heavy use and travel with it just to see how powerful this thing is in comparison to the subpar laptops Ive had in the past.

    me!

    My dad died a few weeks ago and he had always wanted to get me a great computer so my mom spent the money and bought me one (i'm 24) for Christmas. I'll cherish it forever.

    I actually opened it a week ago though but I love it nonetheless!

    I got a Magic Trackpad for my iMac so I guess through that I got a taste of the MacBook Pro! I'm considering buying a 13 inch MacBook now, though.

    It isn't really, considering there is more than likely an update coming up soon - probably featuring a spec bump and maybe (just maybe) a chassis redesign. But if you're like me and you urgently need a laptop, then now is as good a time as any!

    Nobody can say - Apple can be unpredictable at times. However, I'd say the update will probably come around February or March. That's not a definite, like I say nobody apart from Apple know when the update is coming.

    haha I wish :p my family doesn't have upwards of a grand to drop on a person for christmas. But as soon as my MB dies I'm definitely making the upgrade to a MBP :) probably a 15"

    My wife got me a 13" MBP this year to replace my aged G4 iBook. The first thing I did was replace the stock 250mb 5400rpm drive with a Seagate Momentus XT 500gb. So far it's been a lot of putzing around transferring things; lots of stuff on the G4 I don't need, but some that I do.

    I got a 13" MacBook Pro, liking it so far.

    I wish the trackpad wasn't so hard to push down though, I'm assuming this should change over time though.
