And Apple Computer's birthday present for me is that dratted Merom MacBook Pro I've been waiting a couple months for!

Meow, I love it.

Apple is *finally* keeping up with the rest of the industry.

Before they'd release an awesomely fast machine, then only do tiny incremental updates for years, falling way behind the curve (Powerbook G4 anyone?)

Now they're keeping up, releasing new products that stay competitive.

Go Apple. I'm happy with my original MBP (Core Duo) but I love how they're keeping up now.

My advice: Wait a few months :) I've been real lucky with my 1st gen MBP, but I've had a large (>3) number of friends with really, really crappy MBP quality problems.

That said, I *do* love my MBP.

Ordered mine this morning!
My order for the 15" 2.33 GHz model with 2G of RAM and the fast 160G drive, extra battery and power adapters, iLife, and Parallels Workstation, went in at 8:25am PDT. So I think they were waiting for me. I'm sure they snapped into action as soon as I clicked "Submit". It wasn't here yet a few minutes ago, though. Let me go check the mailbox again. Hmm, nope.

...drumming fingertips...

Re: Ordered mine this morning!
Amusingly, my order was nearly identical. I haven't ordered Parallels quite yet. I put my order in around 10am.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
