I don't have one but I guess I'll buy one. There not that much. I'll let you guys know how it goes from there.

Also, did you guys all use IDE DVD Drives? Did anyone use SATA and have it work?

I used a SATA DVD-ROM drive, they work. Just burn another one slowly and try it out.

I will try that out. Is there anything that I have to do as far as modifying the ISO? Or should it just boot fine?

You know what? I just wish they had a black version of the MBP
Im afraid the white is going to get dirty really fast from my palms.
If so, can you clean that off?

MBPs are all aluminum, the MacBooks come in white and black.

It may, but you can easily wipe it off with a cloth or something. I think you'll notice the trackpad wear and tear more than the rest of the laptop getting dirty. When you gonna get your MBP?

How is everyone's installs going? I haven't been home in half a week so I haven't been able to use my desktop PC.
