Ordered Macbook Pro :)
Hey guys, I just ordered my Macbook Pro finally
I was lucky to, as there was a 10% discount on all mac's at the time .
Intel Core 2 Duo
500GB hard drive @ 7200 rpm
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512MB
I got it for a price of AU$3400.
What do you's think?

Congradulation. I just got my 13" Macbook Pro about a week ago and I am very very happy with it. I wanted the 15" but could only come up with $1200. O well I love it just the same. Have fun and don't kill yourself waiting on it.... lol

Argh, I got the October 2008 Unibody model and thus suffered 2GB of RAM, 5400 RPM, and 256MB Nvidia 9600M GT. >.< However I can upgrade 2 of those 3 parts.
Oh, and also, congratulations, you will not be disappointed, MacBook Pro's are fantastic machines. The fans are virtually silent! Great for if you're working late at night and need to make it look like you're computer wasn't running and hop into bed. That's what I like it anyway.

Adium- best chat client ever, compatible with just about everything.
Quicksilver- Timesaver application.
Onyx- Speed up you're Mac.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you're going to start using keyboard shortcuts a lot, Command-Q is quit, Command-W is close window. You'll start to love using them, always set hotkeys for frequently used applications too, that's really all I can say for now mate.

I paid $AU4000.00 for this, which got delivered Friday by TNT
Take a look
Try out Candy Bar, for Dock & Icon mods.
Someone once told me, once you buy a Mac, you'll never go back... O how true!!
