I ordered the new Macbook Pro 17" 2.8ghz last month from Senco since the school where I teach (Xavier School) has been collaborating with this company and AUB to provide cheap loans to teachers for mac laptop purchase with educational discount. When I saw the quotation that Senco gave us, it states that the MBP 17" 2.8ghz (normal one, with glass) will arrive within 2-3 days after ordering. I almost ordered the antiglare, but it's BTO (built-to-order) and the thought of waiting for 30-45 days for the MBP was too much for me to handle. So I told them I wanted to get the regular 17 incher ASAP. This was around mid-June. The problem is that after weeks and weeks of waiting, they told me that they still don't have a unit available. This morning when I called, they told me that the unit will arrive soon from Singapore and to expect the delivery soon--either this Friday or next Monday. The waiting time is driving me nuts. My co-teachers who ordered the 13- and 15-inchers already got theirs two weeks ago. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has already purchased this latest 17" model? And if ever, I'm wondering if the stock is really not available in the Philippines. Also, I hope someone shares his/her experiences with it. I'm a bit concerned also because I really wanted the antiglare because I do a lot of photo editing, but I honestly don't like the silver bezel of the antiglare. I know it's shallow but we all have our own preferences, eh? Hehehe. I've been reading a lot of reviews of the MBP 17" as well, but I want to hear from a normal user. I'm very interested with the battery life and the display. Sorry if this post seems a bit disorganized. I just want to take things out of my head. Haha. Any input will be welcome. Thanks!
