I got nothing when I went at 9:30AM even though they were supposed to open at 10AM. Nobody in line, a few around a table talking and one person checking out the mac pro on the side.
In and out in 5 minutes... I think Friday + Preorders killed any sort of "launch party"

edit: I assume you're talking about the 13" MBPs.
I am talking about the 13" MBPs. The 2.53 has 4GB ram and 250GB HDD while the 2.26GHz has 2GB ram and 160GB HDD.
If I buy the 2.26GHz and then choose at the upgrade page to increase ram to 4GB and HDD to 250GB it's an extra 150$ - 1350$ while the 2.53GHz is 1500$.
Hi everyone, avidly waiting for my snow leopard cd to arrive!
I must say apple laptops are expensive (maybe even overpriced) if you look at the rest of the market the new timeline laptops for example. And I would have NEVER bought a macbook air. But I really already like mac os x and I love the fact that apple treats visually impaired people as people with needs to and that theyinclude everything into the operating system. To me thats worth the extra money.
Hello, i think when my 10.6 disk gets here i will just upgrade, according to someone you can even install snow leopard without rebooting. I wonder if i would get the speed improvements if i just upgrade though?
Improvements in januari? i thought apple renewed its lineup every 18 months or so?
This was still typed on the pc btw, i am still learning how to navigate the web quickly with my mac.

Edit: When I went 10.4-->10.5 on my old iBook I did the upgrade install and it worked flawlessly, so *shrug*.
Thanks basically what "Snow Leopard" is, an "Upgrade Install." I didn't have to reset or reinstall anything...
I'm also eagerly awaiting the snow leopard cd to arrive but one question, I did order my copy online, but is it also possible to get the CD for $10 at the Apple Store? If you don't know what I'm talking about, I know that all owners of an apple computer who bought it after June can get it for $10. So I'm just wondering
