    if I possibly could I would but all the stores are down as usual :lol:

    I'd call my local apple store but all they ever say is "no news yet" so I suspect I'd be better off ordering online when the store comes back

    I'm more than happy with the base spec, I dont even need that! *BUT* I think I'll up the SSD to at least 512

    It sounds like they might be giving the user a bit more control over his iCloud integration. More like what Dropbox does currently. I certainly hope that's the case. And I hope they do away with the stupid auto-save.

    Tom :)macwave:... lost documents because of it...)

    One thing that concerns me. If all my devices are synced and I already have an iPhone, (old) iMac and iPad, why bother with a laptop? Seems a little redundant...?

    Cue the gasps from Keith and Tom.....

    Upgrades from Lion and all the way from Snow Leopard. Single purchase will upgrade all your personal Macs.


    Lion was at $29.99, but want even more people to get their hands on Mountain Lion. $19.99.


    SUCH great prices... obviously since they make all their money on hardware

    Actually, you're right. Unless you're a laptop kind of person. I've changed over to an iMac and it's brilliant. But i do have one problem. My reading is such anymore that if I get close enough to my 27" iMac to read it clearly, it's like sitting in an iMax theater. I feel like I'm so close to the screen. But I have to do that. If I stay back farther, the words get blurry. With a laptop I don't have that problem since I'm naturally closer to the screen.

    Tom :)macwave:... but someday I'll probably be both again...)

    Ya' know. If Microsoft is watching this and seeing these kind of numbers, they've got to be asking themselves where they screwed up. :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave:... just a random thought...)
