Hey Matt - thanks for the pointer to iTerm2. I have been using iTerm for a long time but was always frustrated with the buggy performance. I installed iTerm2 this afternoon - it freaking rocks! I love the multi-window display - especially the horizontal and vertical window placements. And, the performance is much better than the original iTerm. Best upgrade this year :-)
For those on a budget, the local Craigslist in Raleigh has a bunch of pre-owned MBPs. And, some even have Apple Care warranty still active.
