Just went online and bought myself a 15" 2.6MPB:

2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy WS
2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB
250GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
SuperDrive 8x DL
Apple Remote
iWork '08
Final Cut Express Preinstalled
Aperture Preinstalled
BkLit Keyboard/Mac OS

Need more horses than my Macbook has so I figured now is as good a time as any..

Of course, I forgot about the painful waiting game that I have to endure until my system arrives!

Cheers!

True. I've ordered mine on 27th of Feb, shipped on 3rd of March and still waiting (est. delivery - 13-14 March). Not that I'm complaining, but for the money I pay, I would expect better delivery service.

Mind you I am not complaining. But I am having a hard time letting go of the first one I bought, for the refund They told me I could keep it til my new one gets here if I want, but it would be nice to have the 3k back.

I placed the order for RAM from macsales.com based off some good feedback that I read so we'll see how that goes.. Saved like $200..
