Truth be told, I ordered a 2009 MP (2.26 x 2) from Amazon 10 days ago. Once it arrived, I realized I could just hold it for 8 more days and see if there was a 2010 MP at WWDC, something I was willing to give a 20% probability to. If there was, I would ship the 2009 MP back to Amazon and only have to eat the shipping cost. If not, well.... So, I'm going to unbox it today and keep it. There is no 2010 MP. I know many of you would be willing to suggest that a 2009 MP is a bad deal, over priced, etc, but I beg to differ. Here's why: 1. I'm not a Windows fan. I had a never ending cycle of problems with XP, and I don't care to chance Win7. Plus, the software I run the most is known to be far more stable in MacOS than Windows. 2. I don't really want to have to dive back into the world of Windows again after 6 years away. I'm a Mac guy, and I like Mac. I know Mac. 3. If you go to Dell and configure a comparable Precision workstation, 6 GB, 2 x 2.4 GHz Xeons (the 2.4 GHz is the closest Xeon of the same series), etc, you end up with a system from Dell ($2984 after $400 instant savings) that is $100 less expensive than a 2009 MP from Amazon ($3069 + free shipping). Toss in shipping and tax to the Dell order and AppleCare to the 2009 MP and it's a wash. So, the often argued huge price premium for a Mac doesn't exist if you compare a commercially available workstation from a major company. And it is VERY easy to make the Dell Precision cost $8000 with dual hexacores, lots of RAM, etc. 4. I don't want to home build. I'm not a hobbiest. I'm an end user. Yes, I can build an i7 with parts from New Egg for $1500. But why? It ain't a 8 core MP. 5. Hackintosh? Forget it! I want a workstation, not a project. Again, I'm a user. I don't care how easy it is, etc., there is a reason the majority buy a pre-built computer. 6. Most of the Hack possible computers from custom builders are NOT the same as a MP. They are i7's, not Xeons, single processor, not duals. I have a need for dual processors and can use every single core. So, I'm THRILLED that today I have a brand new computer. It is a wonderful machine. I can't wait to unbox it. Cheers!
