    Yup bit the bullet and bought one on amazon for 2430 (without counting the 50 rebate). Anyway, I bought the 1.83 ghz ssd, 128gb of space. THIS THIS IS FAST!!!!

    LOL I love how all the apps take like 2 seconds or less to launch. That crazy!!! Compared to my old rev A with 80gb hd. I can't believe the processor is only 1.83, but I've used a macbook 2.16, regular macbook 2.16, and an imac 2.0. This thing is faster than all of them, of course due to the ssd, but still, that's pretty amazing!

    What's that? I don't think so. Does it degrade and result in the problem or does it ship with it? Looks find to me. Knock on wood.

    Is it super noticeable? How do I check or is it one of those things that if you had it you know???

    Also, I bought it from the Amazon US. It shipped form a city in Illinois. Really happy with the snappyness of this Computer.

    Usually if you don't know what it means, then you got the good one.

    If you see this at any moment,

    or see this image in full size flickering,

    you got a bad one.

    I just figured my rev A does flicker on the 1/3 of the right side of the display and slightly on the 1/3 of the left as well... (Somehow the middle isn't affected.)
    Never figured it would and never noticed on other uses.

    TO THE OP : just enjoy your machine and don't go looking really, really hard for the lines on your monitor.....

    Was the Rev A 80GB HDD or 64GB SSD?
    Please say the first one.

    Nvm, you had it written in your signature, sorry.

    i owned the rev A. it has a better screen compared to the rev B i just bought. the rev B has thin horizontal lines in white color area. it sucks. but i live with it, since then the thin lines aren't bugging me anymore because it's barely visible. it's not noticable if you are not looking for it.

    so i just enjoy the freakin fast rev B with SSD! woosssssh!!!!!!!
