Just bought a Macbook Pro. 15.4".

What a great Laptop.

Size, battery, different Os's, screen, ect.

Well worth the money.

There may be cheaper Laps out there, but buy cheap buy twice.

Logic Pro 8 is going on next. Gotta see what's under the hood.

Not listening to the rumored new Mac book Pro line to come out in a couple of months eh? I'm on the fence. I need a new one like (yesterday) and I'd rather not wait so looks like I'm going to go ahead. Rumors or not. :)

Good time for Logic 8. LOTS of bugs have been worked out. Its not perfect but its the best its been...

The imminent MacBook Pro is Penryn chips with the Montevina platform. This unit was originally expected at WWDC June 9th but now delayed by Intel until July.

Valuable link for those dreaming of their [mac] future: http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/#iPod and

We may be quite a ways away from getting the first Mac QUAD core laptop (due to heat issues) approx. 45 watts worth but THAT will be the day I rejoice. Of course if they released the Quad now I'd hope it would come with a free pare of asbetos jeans! (with the apple logo on the rear right pocket of course)

I recently bought a top spec MacBookPro, upgraded to OS10.5.3. I noticed a few thing:

- it is very hot around the upper edge of the keyboard, enough to burn your skin when Kontakt is running.
- Cubase and standalone Kontakt player can not run together, otherwise the sound interface(tried 3 interface) will stop working.
- the current m-audio fw1814 sound interface driver does not work here.

Time for some asbestos pants man!

Yeah-I hear some are running pretty hot. Although I know of one thats been hot and on stage for weeks to no ill effects (yet) HEAT is a 'puters worse enemy.

Just pickup these great little portable drive enclosures from Melrose Mac.

The macally FW/USB2 drives that fit 2.5" laptop drives in it. Bus powered.

Taking my new 160 gig PC drive and putting it in one of the enclosures and had a 40 gig I never used for images and software.

$50 bucks each.

And they dont sell iPhone stuff. what a drag. But Terry Knows SAndy the owner very well so we go ther all the time... What a nightmare. Ever take apart an iBook all the way down to the drive?

r u kidding. Apple really knows how to treat their customers. I've had problems and had a replacement in 48 hrs or LESS. I wish every company was like Apple...

I was at the one in burbank. I was here at about 5:40 PM, right before they closed.
What a retarded time to close.

Probably not if you are on the West side.

Either way, you would have had to known me. Yellow Vette, with LEX in the plates.

I've too have the burning macbook experience as you mention.

Click the link below if your brave enough to open up your Macbook, I myself am really tempted but have never opened up a laptop before.

It does explain why there is a heat issue .

...and have an update. My wife requested a Nano, but between the time she decided and the time the Nano got here she decided she wanted a Touch instead. So she called them up and they're sending it out.

For free.

Again.
