Hey everybody,

I know a few people were looking for a Macbook Pro. I found a site that is offering them for FREE!!!! Yes, a FREE APPLE MACBOOK PRO! I got mine two days ago and can't put it down. Check out this site and let me know what you think.

Anyone know louis vuitton outlet near by? I am looking for one but never get.

I never buy from louis vuitton outlet, the price is expensive and I always bought online.

I've been waiting patiently for the update since Xmas. I didn't expect a huge change so I'm very happy. I've got a newer 2.4GHz processor, larger hard drive, cool multi-finger track pad and a video card w/ a bit more VRAM (great for MacOS X, since the GUI is hardware accelerated). It saved me $400, which is a big chunk of change.

I bought a macbook pro in june and the salesman told me that they won't update it for a couple of years. do I get to update or am I out of luck?

Honestly,
Do you really expect anyone to give you an upgrade? And that you really believe a sales person told you that they wouldn't upgrade the line for 2 years? You never noticed how computers are upgraded about every 9 months? I'll call Steve Jobs personally and get you your money back plus a new mac book pro wait right here. Troll

Umm I just bought an Macbook less than 30 days ago and don't get a Free upgrade. What do you think your chances are?

What a pathetic update from Apple for the Macbook Pro. What I would call a real update for working professionals using the Macbook Pro is a quad core Intel processor, SLI (dual GPU) NVIDA GeForce 8800M GTX, 200 GB 7200 RPM hard drive as the minimal spec and a Blue-Ray DVD R/W drive. I like that it now has a L.E.D. HD resolution display but the rest of the update from Apple is minor.

Apple must have been in quite the rush to get them out the door. They have a misspelling on the page. Double "P" in power in the "In the Box" section. Don't they have a little red squiggly line like me when something is misspelled?

Nice, 200gb hard drive standard on the base MBP! Minor updates this time, although still quite exciting.

Take the machine to your local Apple store, they may be willing to replace it for a small fee or for free.

Any word on whether there will be a software update of trackpad feature for people with macbook pros that have two finger scrolling?

Yeah, Camino is GREAT! If only other Mac users realized this... NO ADS!

Yeah, my last gen PowerBook (1.67 ghz) is still rocking!!! Although these new MacBookPro's are incredible... used one at the last agency where I was a CD of Interactive... mega fast! I can only imagine just how much better with the new chips making them faster, cooler and better battery conservation... and the icing on the cake is the gestures track pad!

Until I can spend the money to go Pro, I will stay with my iBook G4. I actually have to replace mine asap and I've layed with th eMacBook extensively and was initially quite excited when they where introduced but- everything else aside that keeps me loving the iBook way more- the screen alone on the Macbook's is keeping me away. iBook, PowerBook, Pro or iMac (I much prefer being able to grab and go) but the MacBook despite all the improved specs just isn't for me- Make the screen bigger and that's a whole other story!

Cache Checker

The MacBook used to have a 4MB cache. Now they have a 3MB cache. The 15-inch MacBook also have a 3MB cache instead of a 4MB cache in the previous version. Anyone know why?

After all that, it's hard to believe that I'm still happy with my Aluminum PowerBook G4, 15". Who'da thunk it?

Exactly! re: still being happy with your Aluminum Powerbook G4, 15".
I think that speaks volumes for Apple's on-going dedication towards
software and hardware integration, with quality design and attention to detail. Just hope, when I do "bite the bullet", and get the "new hotness", that its as solid a performer as my Powerbook G4 has been these several years! (not a single problem with anything, screen, hard-drive, etc.)

The ads on the site keep getting stranger.
