    I was asking $1900 knowing i probably wouldn't get it, and got an offer for $1700... should i do it and pull the trigger on a MBP?

    edit: Yeah i am insisting that you wait on the next revision for the Macbook Pro's just to get rid of potential bugs.. aside from the small ones that already exist.. also more apps will be ported over.. i also think there may be a price drop..

    i think BLAIR ment to wait until the Macbook (the equivilant of the ibook) comes out maybe?

    Because the current intel laptop that is offered which is equivilant to the powerbook is called the "Macbook Pro" :)

    just an assumption btw..
