I'm irritated that on Wednesday the Apple Store staff told me they would have MacBooks in stock today and they clearly don't. On the other hand I really liked the feel of the Macbook. Very excited about getting it.
Just saw the pricing for the 1.3 GHz processor. A $250 upgrade from the 1.1 or $150 from the 1.2. I'll go with the 1.2.
I have a hard time imagining there will be a real difference in the user experience, even if the benchmarks are different.
Anyone having second thoughts about the new Macbook? Decided to go 1.2GHz in space grey.
Space grey. Gold would just draw too much attention I think.
Looks like you're right. I'll probably go 1.3GHz/256GB.
I've been looking for the configuration options are but haven't come across anything. I have a feeling that there will be very few configuration choices available. I'm kind of thinking you're going to have to choose between 1.1GHz/256 GB for $1300 or 1.2GHz/512 GB for $1600 and that's it for your decision making, no RAM or video card changes.
So do we think it's worth the extra $300 for the slightly better processor and extra storage space?
I'm considering purchasing a Panerai during my trip to Italy in May. How do the prices in Europe (Italy in particular) compare to the prices in the US? I came across a website (www.thewatchquote.com) that estimates 4200 euros for a watch that seems to sell for around $7k here. Is it possible that there could be that much discrepancy across borders?
We're headed to Italy in May. Rome for three nights, Florence for three nights, Venice for two nights. I'd have to say that Venice is the one I'm the least excited about. We booked the flights and the hotels today. I've only barely started thinking about food and have the Amex concierge working on getting a reservation at La Pergola in Rome. Thinking Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence. Has anyone been?
