I just felt I needed to post my total satisfaction with my C2D. After reading all of the issues and concerns here, my experience so far has been great. Yesterday I received a call from the Grand Rapids Michigan store saying the had one in with my name on it. After picking it up, I ran the migration tool on coming from a Mini Mac I bought last year (wanted to test the Mac waters a bit before making the switch). The migration went fine without any major issues that I can tell so far. Regarding the MBP, mine runs pretty cool, is quiet, no dead or stuck pixels, pretty even backlight on the LCD, fits together evenly, keyboard seems fine, etc. FWIW, matte display. I really thought I might have second thoughts after getting it after reading all the posts. So far, so good. Now I just need the 30" Apple monitor.
