Awww, buggers. Silly MacConnection.
Ordered my MacBook Pro from MacConnection 10 days ago. They gave an estimated shipping in 3-7 days.

And I just e-mailed them and they told me (very apologetically) that the estimated arrival date (I'm presuming they mean the MacBook Pros arriving to their warehouse) had been pushed back to 7/17. =T.T= I've been looking forward to playing with the new machine all last week...

It's almost as if something out there doesn't want me to order the machine. It is a good deal of money that could... go elsewhere... but... I don't want to deal with my crippled iBook.

Going to go into the Apple store today, check to see if they have any in stock (maybe along with an iPod, since they've got that rebate running again) and pay the extra $50 from taxes. (MacConnection: -$150 rebate vs. Apple: -$200 edu discount + $100~ish tax.)

Please let the Apple store have MacBook Pros in stock... Please, please, please...

Maybe I'll flog you Hyzenthlay instead. =:D

Did you go for the matte or glossy display? I'd imagine you might be better off with the matte, given all the harsh lighting you probably encounter. Seems like the glossy ones do work very well in sunlight, which is something I'd enjoy.

Me? When I can, I'll go for the 17" glossy with the high definition option - 1920x1200. (1680x1050 on Hyzenthlay is already a joy)

Another option, maybe, is a refurb - you wouldn't get the latest GPU, but other than that, it doesn't seem like Santa Rosa brings a vast improvement, though that plus the LED lighting seems to give a smidge more battery life.

::blinks:: flog me Hyzenthlay?

Eh. MacConnection didn't offer an option. I think I personally like matte better. Glossy: have to deal with reflections from other sources of light.

And... the refurbs... eh, in terms of lowest-macbook-pro pricing, a new low-end macbook pro from the educational store still wins.
