    I was 'bonding' with my new MBP and noticed I had a few screws missing (in the MBP) for the DVI connection. Is anyone else missing some screws??? I know I'm opening myself up on this one, but I had to ask.

    I just switched from Windows so I could enjoy the Apple perfection and my first Apple hardware has screws missing from the case!?!?!? In my many years of owning DELL product I never had such an ugly mistake. Is this an Apple owners secert that I now need to be a part of?

    I love my MBP except for the fact that it burns the S%#@ out of my lap.

    It is not missing any screws, that is how it is supposed to be. The DVI connector is set back in so that the treading for the screws is completely internal inside those holes. Try connecting a DVI cable and screwing it in, it will work.

    Ah, it's a new system, and everyone overlooks little details now and then.
    The day after I got my PowerBook, I went to the genius bar because I didn't have a microphone.

    ...I just didn't have it turned on. :p :eek:
