I just spec'ed a new MacBook Pro and it cam to almost $4400 with the Applecare and the applications, fast drive-no extra RAM. Man, what an expensive computer.
17 inch is $2799Want some cheese with that whine?
If it's too much get something else. But given that the top of the line MacBook Pro is $2800, what are you adding on for the additional $1600 (or $2400 if it's the lowest one)?
OWC is a great company, but he's actually getting a good price on that drive, and not buying ram. macsales might be a little cheaper, but for a 200gig 7200 SATA, I doubt much cheaper.Here's a tip, don't buy ram or hard drives from apple. They upcharge everything.
Get the lowest amount of ram and hard drive size directly from the factory and do the upgrade yourself. I recommend this place for parts:
They are great and cater specifically to Apple products.
I have also heard a new mac book pro is going to be released soon.
I will probably do some movie editing and put together vignettes...photoshop and dreamweaver web stuff...and of course the audio.
mcmarlin...how much was your macbook?
