My kid @ W.H. gift shop:
Anyone have a favorite place and found have good prices? I am looking for a 17" macbook pro. I am not savy on all the models, I do know I want bootcamp so I can put xp pro in it, too.
Why bootcamp? Think VMware Fusion or Parallels are better choices. They create a "virtual" desktop which means you can jump back and forth without having to reboot the computer into the other system.Anyone have a favorite place and found have good prices?

well...we had been using macofalltrades for bulk purchases and its been pretty good, so thought i would try a personal purchase of a 17" macbook pro.Good prices? :sidelaugh Smalldog Electronics or the Apple store itself (for refurbs) are the only places that I know of. I would be hesitant to buy any kind of used laptop. Make sure it comes with some kind of warranty.
Oh man! I don't think I could wait that long! 'Course today I got back to my office from a meeting, and there was a great huge Mac Pro box sitting in it, brand new (WITH the computer inside! I checked!). I thought AWESOME! Somebody's giving me a Mac Pro! Turns out, one of my co-workers had just bought it for himself, and my office was conveniently located between the store, his office and the the bus stop; rather than carry it all the way back to his office, then BACK to the bus stop, he figured I wouldn't mind if he left it in my office... He's lucky he got it back! I even gave him a ride home! (I think that might have been his ulterior motive).Hey Mow
Arrived today, package looks dry and intact and I dont hear too much rattling inside (but there is rattling!!!!)
I promised my kids and myself I wouldn't open it til after we move this weekend. So its in a box...waiting...
