I bit the bullet and jumped on a sweet deal on a latest-gen 17" MacBook Pro late last week. It was a refurb, and I was too cheap to pay for quick shipping, so Apple told me it wouldn’t ship for 5-7 business days. Whatdya know, they were on-the ball and shipped it out early. It arrived at my desk on Monday. Normally this would be good except that I’m almost 400 miles away from my desk, and won’t be back until Friday! Arrrggghhh! Oh well, I probably wouldn’t get any studying done if I had it with me!
