To prepare myself for the next phase I needed to pick up a laptop for relief work and my own business. Decisions, decisions, decided: MacBook Pro 15.4". I can't truly recommend this yet because it hasn't arrived. I wanted to post this anyway, though, because Amazon.com has it for 5% off and a $150 rebate. Free shipping with Super Saver. All things considered it comes out to a 12.5% discount, the best price I've seen (and I've been watching these for quite some time).
- They've upgraded the processor to the Intel Santa Rosa platform (Intel Core Duo running at 2.2 GHz)
- 2GB RAM
- LED backlit screen
- Backlit keyboard
- 120GB hard drive. A little small in this day and age, but I'd rather spend cheap money on an external and use it with Time Machine then pay the exhorbitant price they want for a few measly GBs.
- You know I'll be Boot Camping to XP. That's what you get when you're do .NET development. Developers, developers, developers.
