So last night I placed my order for my MacBook Pro at around 4:45 PM Est. A little later I got my email confirmation and said that it would ship in 1-2 business days then it takes 1-5 business days to get to you. ETA was up till the 6th of October on the estimate.
So today I wake up to the sound of the Fed Ex guy pulling into my driveway at 9:30 Am. Yep my package was ordered at 4:45pm yesterday then I received it today at 9:30 Am on Apples free shipping!
Next I decided to load it up and fiddle around with some stuff for a little bit. Of course the first thing I do is go in and check the hardware. I was supposed to get 2X1 GB DDR3 1066Mhz memory. To my surprise I see I have 4GB of DDR3 memory. So someone messed up and gave me a free $100 upgrade to 4GB of memory!

After configuring user setups I played with some preferences and had to run some errands. I get back and turn it back on and notice how fast it launches to the desktop. I then do a side to side comparison and my Mac Pro clocked at 2.26Ghz vs my PC clocked at 3.2Ghz currently (Both C2D's), the Mac was at the desktop screen about 5 seconds faster than my freaking gaming desktop!

I also noticed I have no clue where anything is at. It took some getting used to the multi touch pad but it is freaking sweet after you get used to it. They took all the touch pad limitations and basically found a neat way of removing them.
I now need 'J' and Rohan to chime in about some good software. Man I'm having a good morning
A welcome addition
