thanks! a common complaint from original 13" mb alum owners is how bad the screen quality is (bad viewing angles, washed out blacks). this doesn't seem to be an issue for those who bought them in april/may (apple did some kind of silent update on the screens), but it's good to know that the model of the screen has changed entirely on the new 13" mbp.

totally wrong. The ram and hd is still user replaceable since the latch panel is removed so the user will have to remove using screw drivers. The only thing that is not user replaceable is the battery and the guts of the computer.

You'll probably have to wait and get your own to do that...I know when mine arrives Thursday I won't be removing the back!

9C9F is the same screen with the line issue that they have been putting in the MacBook Airs for several months.

Maybe he needs the SD card to take the photo in the first place

How far does it stick out when inserted?

I would imagine that, except for the IO side, it will look pretty much like the Unibody Macbook.

Yeah, could you take those same side pictures with a dark/black background or while watching a dark movie?

Sorry for all my demands, but you asked for it when you posted this thread.

Yeah hold on- I have so much to do tonight but it looks like nothing will get done. One thing I don't like is how the keys get the finger oil marks...suck but whatever.

To The Reef: It sticks out about a a centimeter or really actually as far as the magsafe cord does (without the cord part- just the plug)

It looks better than the pictures

I took these in the dark and one with an extreme viewing angle and brightness all the way up...I think the camera just sucks...no bleed at all and very dark blacks. It was tough to tell where the screen started in the dark.

I unplugged the charger and it claims with bluetooth off and display at full brightness/keyboard- I have about 6 hours on battery but it keeps climbing after I unplugged it- not bad

I am sure that depends on the shipping. If it ships in the next day or two, and you took the standard free shipping, it should take 2 to 5 days.


p.s. As this is your first mac, I highly recommend the apple care plan. I think you can still purchase it up to 90 days or a year after purchase. I find that I always get my monies worth. Computers break. Its nice when someone else has to pay to fix them.
