I need a mac book pro.
I was really excited, picked out my MBP and…found out I can’t buy if for another 3-4 months and even then, it’s not looking good. I sold my original G4 mac to pay taxes way back when. I knew I’d never get it back!
My poor wife, she does a great job at managing our finances, so I don’t even mess with it – if she says we can’t do it, then I listen.
I was going to wait it out for a while longer. Then I got a bug report on the Papervision3D component involving it running on OSX – ugh!! When I was teaching in LA, John Olson was cool enough to let me borrow his mac at the hotel to fix bugs for the next day for the class – he truly saved me on that one. And I think at that moment, I knew I had to seriously consider getting one.
So, I figured, why not start the “get John a Mac Book Pro” initiative. Someone had started a similar initiative for Nicolas Cannasse a while back and that rocked to see people rally around to make that happen! So, I thought why not try it again? If any of the projects that I’ve worked on have helped out, maybe this could happen sooner rather than later? Maybe Xray saved you some time? Or maybe, Papervision3D’s your new crack habit? Or maybe Red5 made you’re guitar sing midi to flash?
To be specific: This is what I’m hoping for:
Mac Book Pro 15" -
* 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
* 2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB
* 160GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm
* SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
* MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display
* MagSafe Airline Adapter
* Backlit Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English
Bottom line is: I need $2708.00 plus tax for a grand total of $2941.41 to get the configuration above. Any and all help is MUCH appreciated.
