    a new MacBook Pro!

    17" Glossy - everythign else stock..


    holy crap its beautiful.. sooo expensive.. but i think its worth it in the end.. close to 3k with education discount.. applecare and a free after MIR printer.. crazy.


    never thought i would ever spend that much on a computer.

    now i just need to learn how to use this amazing machine!

    thanks for all the help guys.. so much info here it made my decision to purchase the MBP alot easier!

    yea.. i was at the store and I couldnt decide on the 15 or 17.. but i said the hell with it and decided i wanted a bigger screen over form factor.. the MBP wont go everywhere with me.. just on trips and back and forth from my apt to my parents house..


    plus.. i bought a crumpler horseman to lug it around in! :wiggle:

    the search on this site is pretty good. some sites have horrible search engines and then people bitch at you for not searching when you have a question. if you've ever owned a VW and tried searching for something on vwvortex, you'll know what i'm talking about.
