Yup, MacBook Pros get Core 2 Duos, shipping immediately. 2.16 and 2.33s available. Also a handful of other upgrades: FW800 for all, 6x+ DVDDL for all, 1GB (single stick) RAM standard (upgradable up to 3GB: 1GB + 2GB stick), 120GB 5400RPM standard (160GB, 5400RPM available [with perp recording, IIRC], as well as a 200GB 4200RPM). Price points haven't changed.

Only question is: glossy or regular? ;)

(I'm going regular, fwiw)

Yeah I would have so gotten the MacBook Pro even before if it had came with 1GB of RAM and 120GB HDD for $2,000.

17" Model now includes 2GB and huge HDD. I am so sad...maybe Apple would trade me? lol Wishful thinking. I have only had my Mac for about 2 months now.

Dont you get 14 days to return an item if you dont open it? If so return it and buy the new model ;).

I believe he got one used real cheap if I remember reading in a thread...

And honestly do you think someone that got a MacBook Pro just 5 minutes ago didn't open it???

It's like dying hungry and going and buying food just to look at it lol

even if it is opened pretty sure you can take it back. just tell them you aren't satisfied with the performance and look angry.

If you :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana: enough to any company you can get what you want. Trust me I know. I work for RadioShack and we get enough people calling Fort Worth and :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana: after we tell them we can't do something and *ring* Fort Worth calls and they tell us to give this customer what they want to make them happy. Believe me companies do not like angry customers.

so I couldn't wait till the estimated shipping date. I cancelled my order, and ran down to one of the many local apple stores and picked up my new macbook pro. I haven't been this excited in some time now.

Mine should be here the 8th....I can't wait :D

Got it with 2GB and the 160GB drive, the small savings to get stuff from newegg wasn't worth the hassle of two warranties.

BTW, 15.4in, 2.16GHz.

Egg's got G.Skill for ~$110 shipped. Not a bad deal, IMO. Really glad they went with a base of 1GB sticks :)

Well, mine just shipped, will be here the 2nd according to FedEx :party:

And I also just checked the calendar, and the original arrival date was a Sunday....w/e

Anyway, I'm psyched for it.....and don't worry, there will be plenty of pictures.
