I decided to get one after seeing it yesterday in the store. Beautiful machine! The thing is that I really wanted to get it in store and not order it because of the waiting time, but I've been told that 16GB will not make it to the store and is only build to order. I could hunt for one and get the base with 8GB right away, but I want 16GB so there is no way for me to buy it in store, and I have to wait 3-4 weeks... I'm a musician so more ram is better, I'm sure 8 will be fine and will do the job, and my previous MBP with 4GB was ok with occasional lags, but since it's soldered on RMBP I decided to get 16 and not worry about upgrade anytime in future. So who's waiting for base 16GB and why?
