    its ordered !!!!!!
    Well yesterday evening i ordered my MBP. I got the 2.4ghz 15.4inch glossy screen.

    cant wait !

    but unfortunatly i didnt get the ipod nano promotion cos its not here in the uk yet. - unfair !!!

    ahh well i already have a 1st gen so its ok.

    i also bought a neopreme case, a spek shell hard cover, wireless mighty mouse and apple care. because i will get some student discount i got a promotion with the apple care and instead of just above 200 i got it for just above 50. ! nice !

    anyways. reviews coming on youtube soon - probs beggining of september.

    No, but my MBP 15inch Glossy 2.4Ghz arrives today - one month after order. The build took two weeks and it has been shipping for god knows how long. I mean iLife'08 has been released since I purchased it and I still don't have I visited the Apple store in Bluewater the other day and the guy said he had it in stock

    Congrats to you! You'll have hours of enjoyment with your new purchase.

    YES! My laptop arrived on Monday and it is lovely. I have to admit the screen is amazing and the feel of the machine is total quality. The only downsides are the nasty noises the superdrive makes when loading a disk (however this is normal) and the position I type in makes the screen dim sometimes as the light sensors think its evening

    I think it was worth the wait and I got iLife'08 installed with the machine and it's on the reinstall disks... sweet. I've purchased iWork'08 too and that is really cool. What else could I want ...

    Congrats to both of you.

    Jezster: When did you order it? I ordered mine on 27th July, not due to arrive until next week, I also ordered a 15" Matte 2.4 standard spec with iWork '06 but it got held for a week because of iWork '08 coming out. I know its definitely coming with iWork '08, i just hope i get iLife '08 too. Are you in the UK?

    Christm: just to make you aware, the apple care for 58 on Education isnt normal apple care. I ordered it too, but noticed after, online, that the AppleCare is on the educational store for 230 and the EMEA CC-HE contract uplift for 58. I called Apple and apparently the uplift is to 3 year warrinty but the addtional telephone support is throught the IT department of your University. Strange.

    I ordered mine on the 23rd July and yes it was held up. I did get iLife'08 and the Demo of iWork'08. I liked iWork so much I visited the Apple store in Bluewater and purchased a copy for 55. Oh, and yes I am in the UK.

    The only problem I have at the moment is that I performed a clean installation of the OS due to 'family members saying they understood Unix and Terminals'. However I now don't have the ComicLife app or any of the Omni-stuff Time for me to call apple...

    Also I have installed the Xcode stuff but can't fine the development IDE, any ideas where it might be?

    Mbps are very fun to use. jezter: slip in the mac OS X install disk 1, and do the optional installs thing. My dad claims to understand Unix and Terminals too.
