    Default My Wife Loves Me!!!! New Macbook Pro On the Way!!!

    My wife just bought me a Macbook Pro from the Apple website. Here is the one she got:

    13-inch: 2.3 GHz
    2.3GHz dual-core
    Intel Core i5
    4GB 1333MHz
    320GB 5400-rpm1
    Intel HD Graphics 3000
    Built-in battery (7 hours)2

    On top of that, she got a Government Discount (100 bucks off) as well as they through in an HP Wireless Printer. Walked away paying $1200 for both. If that isn't good enough, we also get a rebate on the Printer for the $100 bucks, so we are getting that thing free!!!

    Boy I LOVE APPLE!!!

    I know what you mean about the wait. Last year when I got my iPhone 4, the 7 day wait time seemed like an eternity, lol. Let us know how you like it when it arrives.

    Couldn't agree with you more, Hank. TiPb is my #1 go to site for everything related to Apple products. I've learned most of what I know about Jailbreaking from here and I know I'll learn a lot more in the future too.

    Usually when I get stuff using the Federal Employee discount I usually show my IRS badge. But congrats anyway! You'll love it. Ahhh I miss the first unboxing of my 15" MacBook Pro...

    I am thinking about buying a 15" MacBook Pro soon. I am unsure if I should go with a refurbished or a new one. I am excited, just waiting till I figure out my future so I know much I can spend on one

    I would go for a new one man. I was in the same boat too on what to get but going new is the better choice, imo.

    I'm oh-so-close to buying a MBP as well. I've been away from Macs for a few years now and would love to go back, but they're just so darned expensive. I'm hoping for a generous Christmas bonus this year

    They are pricey but oh so worth the money. Once you get it you won't even worry about how much you paid for it. TRUST ME!
