I'm in love with this thing and don't even have it yet.
are you a student? can you claim the ipod rebate?
I am, and I will! Might not even keep the iPod, but I will be claiming the rebate.
i would've got the 2.2 ghz with 4gb of ram
I would rather upgrade ram later and have a fast processor now... Plus I need the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics with 256MB SDRAM
oh can someone recommend me a computer bag? I don't need anything high end, but something that looks nice and could hold this laptop and a text book or something.
same. I wish I had that graphics card
Uhm...Why is the BTO option for 4Gb memory $750????? Seriously, this is a typo, right?
that is why I didn't even give it a second look.
I some ways I would really like the 7200 RPM hard drive though
Thanks! I'll be posting in here a lot when it arrives.
$2300 is too much...I really want that 256MB card though.
Although I'm totally in love with my 2.33GHz, I'm now sad they have a 2.4
Unfortunately no. In these things they only put two slots for memory, so to get the 4 gig you need to get two 2 gig sticks and they are a bundle. It will probably be more to do it later though since you will need to ditch what is already in the machine since they use two 1 gig sticks. So you either need to buy a 2 gig stick and have three total or you need to ditch both and buy two 2 gig sticks which will be money.
Sorry, but 2 2Gb modules for a MacBook Pro costs less than $400 by itself.
Apple BTO memory options have traditionally carried a slight premium, but not so much as to be uncompetitive. Given that the price differential between 2x1Gb (2Gb kit) and a 2x2Gb (4Gb) kit is about $280 then $750 as a BTO option simply must be an error.
Wow, that has come down a bit. The last time I checked on 2 gig sticks it was a lot more than that. So yes, Apple is on crack if they think they can charge that, though they seem to. When I got my Mac Pro, the same exact drive they were charging $400 in a MTO config could be had in the store for just over $200.
I may just do that kit actually, upgrade this puppy right off the bat.
I'll be buying that kit in 6- 8 months, but I don't see a need for 4GB of ram right now.
IMO, I would drop the Mighty Mouse (they suck, believe me) and the neopreme sleeve, and get a Waterfield sleeve (www.sfbags.com), and a logitech mouse.
I've got one of the Waterfield sleeves for my MBP, and I love it. Plus, I got mine verticle (they come horizontal too) so it fits right in my backpack, so I don't have to take out the damn sleeve to take out my computer, I just slide the MBP out.
Great choice on the Mac though, I'm sure you'll love it, thats a hell of a first Mac .
I've heard good things about Booq bags too: http://booqbags.com/
skip the mighty mouse though...thing is a piece of shit...
i love my mighty mouse!
I'm in love with this bag http://booqbags.com/s.nl/it.A/id.17/.f
but they don't have it for the 15"
EDIT: just found it on ebay
it seems to be a very love/hate thing.... Really no middle ground.
Really like this one too, but $200+ for a bag is a little more than I wanted to pay.
What logitech mouse are you using? I have a Logitech G5 for my desk top and really love using it, but I'm wanting something wireless for the laptop.
