    Nice. i'm currently looking at MacBook pro's. I busted the screen on my iBook G4 12" today. :( Still deciding whether to replace the screen or sell as is and buy a MacBook pro.

    MBP is a bit large for me. It's perfect if you only need to take it with you occaisonally, but otherwise not.

    Will it really take until July 10th to get it? Or is that a very safe estimate? :p

    Actually i really need something in 12" but it seems apple abolished all of those. I travel overseas 30 days at a time. I like the macbook...but i've always yearned for the titanium and higher end equipment inside.

    Yeah. I wanted the anodized aluminum too, but oh well. I really prefer the 12" regular screen. But again, oh well.

    That's really the killer there, the bags you carry around for 17" notebooks are huuuge. hahaha

    I'm quite happy with my 15.4 MBP. Served me well for two weeks in Asia.

    Sweet

    I'm looking at a Macbook, but I'm only 1/3rd of the way to my goal ammount of money (arround 1700, 1299 MB plus iCurve, ACPP and bluetooth keyboard).

    You should have ordered the HD and RAM from somewhere else, I've heard they're both really easy to replace, and apple overcharges so much.

    Well, the bigger HD comes with the black one, and when you price out 2 512mb sticks of ram it becomes more expensive than having apple do it.

    i wouldnt hold your breath. the ibooks have been doing that since way back when. my ibook does it, and i bought it close to 2 years ago. it all depends on your hands and how much you use it. if your hands naturally make a lot of oil or sweat, then it's going to show wear like that. i have 2 girl friends who barely use their ibooks, and don't have very big hand prints and theirs arent fading at all. My cousins just got 2 of the new macbooks, so i will keep the macshack posted on how it turns out.

    i'm pretty sure its all relative though.

    I just came across this on mac-forums.com

    I'm really glad I went the extra yard and went with the extended AppleCare.
    I'm so anxious for it to come!!

    Yeah, I asked about them on here and got many positive responses, then I looked arround on the net and found about 400 positive reviews, not a single negative one.

    I ordered mine on the 23rd, but I had to order it through my school to get a discount. So I called them, they placed the order with Apple, Apple is shipping my macbook and ipod to my school, and my school is going to ship it to me. Maybe I'll get to see it before fall semester.
