This is a very ironic situation. I was not able to decide on MBP or mac pro for the longest time. Finally decided MBP with the new release. Placed my order for the 2.4 7200rpm drive. A few days later, my main computer (Sager laptop) needed to be sent in for repairs. This morning the MBP went to prepared for shipping status. Minutes later, received call about my Sager. It is not fixable, and they will be sending me a check for current value. With this new knowledge, looks like I could've used my student developer discount for a mac pro, and replaced the sager with a 2.2 MBP.
