New MacBook Pro has shipped!

A week ago, Apple announced that it was shipping MacBook Pros with faster processors. At the time, this seemed like an excuse for Apple to change the shipping date from February 15th to the 28th. Since I was already disappointed by the extra 2-week wait, I upgraded to the 2.16 GHz chip. This bumped my ship date back even further - to March 17th.

However, I just received an e-mail from Apple saying that my laptop has shipped! WTF? Either there's a glitch in their system or I'm gonna be one happy camper at the end of this week. ;-)

Looks like it left Shanghai at 12:40 p.m. It's almost 4:00 a.m. - I'd better get to bed!

Hey matt, be sure give us a review, including the battery life, contents of the box etc etc

Also, please post the length of time it takes to build Appfuse. You wrote an entry a while back complaining about the speed it takes to compile Appfuse on your Powerbook versus your Windoze machine. It'd be good to follow that up with the new machine!

I'm also keen to hear how Eclipse performs ... ;o)

Matt, I hope you will be able to share information how good is Java stuff on new Apple. :-)

Yeah, I am considering getting a MacBook Pro comparing to ThinkPad T60 and I hope you can share your opinion with me which will force me to do a best choice. ;)

I think there are some Apple folks that are tracking your site and decided to give you priority. :) You lucky son-of-a-gun. We expect reviews!
