Looks like I'm going to take the plunge on a MBP. My first mac since college in the Power PC days. not really "making the switch" as the majority of my music production will likely remain on my monster tower, but for everyday stuff and syncing w/ the iPhone it should be pretty cool!

Anyone else getting a new toy?

I just bought a 2.4Ghz MBP back in December. So I think I'm good for now.

Would like to try Multitouch on the new MBP's, however. I wonder if this works inside of Office apps like Excel. That would be VERY handy for zooming/panning around huge spreadsheets.

I'll be getting a MacBook this week. I was going to head to BestBuy and get one last night but I decided to wait till today to see what was new. I think BestBuy is getting them on March 2 so I'll wait till then. I could get it today at the Apple store but I don't want another CC bill, I can just use my BB card.

I will be all over the MBP. Been using windows for years and wish I had changed sooner. Oh well. Better late than never.

I'm definitely going to be getting either a MBP or a MBA in the next few weeks, I just have to decide which offers exactly what I'm looking for. I actually have to decide what I'm looking for first though.

I am also looking for a new notebook to replace my iBook G4. I know that kylegod and I have been posting that we were waiting for the new Macbooks.

I was thinking Air, but the Macbook and MBP give you so much more for the $. I am upset that the Macbooks so not have the multitouch. I am like Youngbinks. I am not really sure what I want, so I cannot decide what to buy. For price of an Air, I can almost get a MBP. I do not really need a MBP, but I really want the multitouch. Oh my! I cannot decide.

Be careful. I do not want to encourage any of that behavior!

Man, I am getting excited thinking about how awesome it will be for you to open it up! Yeah. Have fun. :)
