    and not take advantage of the free shipping. Besides I like it when the neighbors see the fedex truck pull up with a big apple box

    i thought the whole purpose of the intel switch was to give mac notebooks better battery life

    4 hours is similar to the ibook 12 inch but still there are significant improvements to justify the move (faster processor/13.3 inch/hour or more give or take)

    Nope. I think they could not make PowerPC processors much faster. Remember how Jobs said he was going to bring out 3 Ghz PowerMac but never able to deliver them?

    I did get the student discount. I went to UCLA and graduated in 03. so I think they care more about the sale then checking if I'm lying. The price before discount was 1299, with the discount it was 1199. Usually Apple tends to slap a fedex tag right outside of the apple box and send it that way. I just got the shpment confirmaion today. its right now in SUZHOU, CN. another thing, because i ordered thru apple store, i was able to spread the amount to 2 Credit cards
