    woah... where'd you find that? I'm very, very seriously considering upgrading from my Black Macbook to an MBP; at that price I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    I think I'll be giving them a call on Monday to see if I can sneak in with another institutional affiliation... don't know if they'll go for it or not.

    Get AppleCare. I don't trust any of the Macbook Pro video cards in that generation.
