Ordered it on Monday, and then after the new MacBook Pro was announced I cancelled my order. Then I thought about it real hard. Lots of unanswered questions about that new MacBook, you know? Also, I didn't want to own a first revision. So I called up MacMall (which I will NEVER do again), and ordered it again. Specs: 15.2" with 1440x960 screen res 5.5 hr battery life (yeah, ok) 8x Dual Layer DVD 128 video 512 ram (upgrading to 1.5gb this weekend) backlit keyboard 80gig HD (Down to 60 now that I installed the entire adobe creative suite, macromedia suite and quark, office suiteand so on) I'm really satisfied. I was a bit angry about no firewire 800, and the 4x single layer dvd drive on the NEWER model. Sure, the 256mb of vram would have been great, but you know what? Apple is supposed to come out with some neat things (they always do) and I dont want to be a guinnea pig to a first rev with compromises. Anyway, I'm really happy with my purchase. it was $2000, and I am pleased with it. Anything I should know? I had an iBook before this (that melted for the 4th time, so I neeed a new laptop)... Any known issues with this model that I should keep on the lookout for? Any tips with the new OS Tiger that I should be aware of? P.S. the backlit keyboard is THE SHIT.
