Other Thoughts: This is the second MacBook Pro I have purchased in the last 90 days. The first one was a MD102LL/A and this one (MD101LL/A). I purchased the first computer from a local store and it had the latest version on Mountain Lion at the time (10.8.1).

This MacBook Pro however came from a very old lot of MacBook Pros. The box was slightly damaged, and it had OSX version 10.7.4!! It took me all day with my slow 6mbps download speed to conduct all the required updates to get the current version on OSX (10.8.2).

On the plus side I would recommend getting the MD101LL/A over the MD102LL/A if you plan on upgrading the HHD with a Solid State Drive, and bumping up the RAM to 8GBs. You will save about $400.00 and with an SSD the difference between the i5 and i7 is not really noticeable.

If you choose to purchase this computer you may want to consider going to the Apple Store instead of Newegg since there is no real savings. This will ensure you get the most current version of OSX.
