It's getting close to buying time...

    I'm going to be buying a laptop (ahem, 'portable computer') very soon. The MacBook Pro is a mighty tempting machine. I've ruled out the MacBook (integrated graphics aren't good enough for what I want, and the screen's too small for me).

    The only problem is the fear I have of going and spending £1200 on a MBP (HE discount FTW!) and finding that the battery's duff, the screen flickers, it whines and gets hot enough to fry an egg on.

    I know that some of these problems are meant to have been solved, but I'm wondering: what are the chances of me getting a *perfect* MBP? Slim to none, or pretty good? Should I just chance it and take it back if there's a problem, and am I able to do that? Since I'd be getting one of the machines post-speed-bump (2.0GHz, 128MB X1600), then I'm guaranteed to get a recent serial number, right?

    Thanks in advance.
