I'm getting a new MacBook Pro 17 with 2GB RAM, 7200 RPM 100GB HD, and a USB modem for the road. $3,148 on the website. I presume it will cost the same at the store. Now, I am gonna want/need it immediately. I have a $1000 Apple credit card I'm putting part of it on. Should/can I go to the store to get it same day with RAM installed? I mean I can put the ram in myself, I don't care. And I'm gonna wait and get the AppleCare at the end of year 1, since its under warranty anyway. I just thought I'd share. I need this fucking thing. I can't work on a 12" anymore. I'm gonna try to fit a small distro of gentoo on like 10GB for development, a small XP partition on 10GB for one game at a time, and the rest for teh OS X. Have to look into whats involved in tri-booting.
