There can be some delay in getting a new MacBook Pro with the anti-glare screen from Apple, but B&H Photo has the anti-glare Mac Book Pro Core i7 in stock, and for anyone outside New York that means you won’t be charged sales tax either.
Here’s the exact model I recommend, and even if you don’t have it turned into a killer MPG Pro Laptop, you can upgrade it at OWC to 8GB memory (after rebate) for about $259. Add in a fantastic Mercury Extreme SSD (up to 480GB), and it’s killer combo.
The 17-inch model has the ExpressCard/34 slot, the 15-inch does not. That’s important, because it’s the only way to get faster external storage on the MacBook Pro. A $28 card is all it takes, see the review.
