    I spend way to much money and am no having to pay for it. I have to sell my Macbook Pro in order to have any spending money. So, my eBay auction ends tonight at 8:45, and that means I'm shipping it off on monday.

    I enjoyed this machine, I've had my frustrations with it and it gets rediculously hot, but it was a good machine. OSX is an awesome OS, but the programs for it for the most part suck. That was my biggest peeve with the machine.

    I'll still sort of be in the mac crew, but it's more like apple crew. I have an ipod :hsd:

    Well, Mac Shack, adios. Maybe someday I'll be back full time, like after college (it's expensive) :sadwavey:

    Here is the auction link if any one is looking to get a Macbook Pro on the cheap:

    foobar2000 > iTunes
    Firefox in Windows > Safari/Opera/Firefox in OSX
    uTorrent > Transmission/Azureus

    I'll miss Adium, but those are the 3 things I do on my computer the most, and Windows is a better option for those things.

    Does that sync with your iPod? Including the album art?

    My financial aid doesn't come till school starts, and the left over money doesn't get to me till three weeks later.

    I'm doing a second chance offer. I guess my reserve of 1200 was too high.

    I really think that having Apple Care should factor into the final price, but apparently it doesn't. And identical MBP sold for 1200 a week ago with no applecare at all :mad::mad:

    Probably cause it didn't have a reserve. People don't like bidding on things with a reserve because right from the start that tells em that they're not gonna have a chance at getting a super good deal.
