    Best Buy has (had?) a $300 off deal on the base 15 inch MBP so picked one up today. Wanted the 13 inch but the extra screen size was tempting. Plus the wife said "just get the bigger one" so that was all the nudge I needed.
    Would have waited but needed it now and the $300 is nice in my pocket (or at least to cover Apple Care before this time next year!). Current machine is a 2011 Mac Mini (mid-level) that I upgraded to SSD so this is plenty!
    Getting it all set up now (thank goodness for cloud!) and going to enable Time Machine to my Airport Extreme once my Mini is done backing up for the day.

    Honestly for me the price tag isn't worth the screen real Estate specially when I could always hook it up to an external monitor but congrats. I love my 13 inch Macbook Pro and you'll love it to . For the weight of the 13 inch I expected it to be heavier but I barely notice it with my other books for school.

    i'll use my Mac Mini if I'm using an external monitor. I like the extra RAM in this one too... since it's not upgradable I don't have to think about "what if I need it".

    Enjoying it so far; just need a way to carry it! Also thinking about getting the RadTech microfiber to keep the screen from touching the keys. Used to have something similar for my old G3 Macbook ....

    Congrats! I just retired my 2006 MBP today. Replaced it with the 13" MBP. Wasn't sure if I was going to like the smaller screen but so far it's growing on me.

    Apple replaced the Logic board about 4 years ago due to a recall for the graphics card failing. Im sure that had a little to do with it. Still though, this is why I love Macs. They've outlasted any PC laptop Ive had. The Core2Duo was killing me though. :/ lol
