Hi Guys, received and upgraded my MBP. Thought I would post some benchmarks and I will try and add other things over the next few days. Specs: 17" MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Matte Screen 8Gb Kingston 1600MHz DDR3 240Gb Vertex 3 The RAM actually runs at 1600MHz which is pretty cool. Some screens: This MBP is to replace my iMac desktop. It flies!! Seriously!! After a lot of agonising I went with the Matte screen, very happy so far and easy on my eyes.
