Just a note to say that my MacBook Pro arrived yesterday (Sep 9). I've not had a chance to play much with it beyond transferring my data, but I'll be sure to report on it as soon as I can.
Also, today (Sep 10) my Snow Leopard Box Set — which I pre-ordered from Amazon on Aug 20 — finally arrived.
The MacBook Pro was a built-to-order system shipped from the plant in China and came in one week.
The pre-ordered software, counting from its release date, took twice as long to arrive.
You do the math. Me, I'm gonna go play with my new machine.
