Hey guys..
I heard that 15" MBP's are being replaced by 17's in some cases...due to shortages.

Tis true, some people with old orders for 2.4 15"ers are going to be upgraded by Apple to a 17" for free IF they choose, but it has to be for existing orders that have been hanging for a while.

Yep, two people I know have had this happen just today! Insanity. They're pretty happy about it.

As nice as a 17" would be, I expect most people chose the 15" due to the size more than the cost.

Can you still choose to CTO it?

I would only take the 17" with 1920x1200.

Does the order has to be via Apple online store or do they offer this for orders via resellers too?

My order is for 2.2 though and has been only for over 2 weeks now.

Aparently only for people already WITH orders and ONLYfor the higher 2.4 model, and not for CTO orders. Some resellers have been given the option, though I have no idea if it's for all sellers.

They're only doing the 2.4 models. It can be online or thru a reseller...
