    I am going to head out to the Apple Store today to pick up a MBP. Is there a date of manufacture I can look for on the boxes that will tell me if it has the new battery so I don't have to do the exchange?

    And is there a date that is known when they started using the new Logic Boards?

    Thanks :)

    You may twist off the Apple employee. They will just bring a box up from the back when you say what you want. Poor guy, having to schlep boxes back and forth. :D

    There is some code in the serial number etc that tells you the factory and week of production. I can't remember how it breaks down. Maybe you can find something here.

    Really though, ask them when you get there.

    Picked my new baby up today. I got a week 31 build and so far she's quite as a church mouse.

    I did manage to find one MBP in the apple store that had the clicking problem under the right speaker. The sells rep looked shocked when I showed him.
