    Just return it to the best buy and tell them you didn't want it. Then buy another one later. If it's that new, they should just take it back.

    The optical drive is loud, that's the way it is, when things spin that fast and you have a <1in computer it is going to be loud.

    The sticking trackpad is supposed to happen. This is "Ignore accidental trackpad input" it thinks you are typing so makes the trackpad less sensitive, this can be turned off in System Prefs.

    The rest is cosmetic, Apple probably won't fix under warranty. BestBuy might return depends on who you talk to.

    well its not the accidental touch thing, i tried that, it just straight up doesnt respond for a second or two after i click certain things...

    i understand the cosmetic stuff isnt big but woulnt you be pissed if your BRAND NEW computer had a dent in the top? the thing hasnt even left my desk!!

    it is a stock 17inch configuration and bestbuy made me wait 23 days from time of order to get it...

    i hope you guys can understand my frustration...

    i would bring it back to apple but immediately they are going to say i dropped it because its dented. and the trackpad thing doesnt happen all the time...
    hopefully when i call best buy tommorow they are nice to me...

    has anyone else had problems with their c2d MBPs?

    Whoa - I didn't notice initially that you had this with 2 Gig's o'ram...

    The dent alone should qualify for a replacement, if not the problems you are having. Try Apple, or try at Best Buy - give them the chance to help you, or say no. If they say no, then turn to Apple's Customer Service. Good luck!

    yea, the computer is nuts, ive never had a chance to really use a mbp first hand and the last 24 hours i love the thing....

    but heres whats happening with it:(what ill tell bestbuy tommorow)

    it froze and restarted on the first startup.

    the trackpad gets stuck

    Battery life sucks!, i did word processing on it this morning on a "full" charge on the dulles screen brightness and it lasted maybe 2 hours..

    the two finger for double click feature works sometimes, other time not until a few clicks

    and it has the dead pixle...

    i dont want to mention the dent because immediately they are going to blame me and that might knock me over...

    i just hope i dont have to fight with bestbuy over it. plusm to add to it all, i NEED it this weekend to show films at 2 colleges and to do some photoshop work for my aunts interior design company 2 states away!!

    AHHHH
