    EDIT: i know the screen looks super glossy- which it is but really when working on it i see little to no reflection

    nice vid, cheers for the effort. Btw i see you got the 2.93 processor; based on your research what sort of improvement will this give you, do you reckon it is worth the $$$?

    No, it's not, at least for me. Answer this question for yourself: Is paying $300 for 0.27GHz extra reasonable for you?

    Well done, I think you may just be the first one to post an unboxing video of the new MBP's

    OP, thanks for the video. It is great :)

    Please do not forget to share your experience with us ;)

    1) Battery life.
    2) Screen bleed.
    3) Temperatures.
    4) Coolness factor compared to the old 17" MBP.
    5) Speakers compared to the old 17" MBP.
    6) Noise with those new fans :D

    There was one spot (around 2'30") where it looked like the familiar "theater-light" screen bleed might be in evidence. But maybe it was the video. Can you tell us if (with a fully black screen) the 17" has this characteristic?

    1) i got over 4 hours while running imovie, exporting videos and using image stabilization. i still have to check out just normal browsing usage

    2) i put black background on. i don't see any bleed, seems evenly lit.

    3) my CPU has got up to 80C, and my fans never go above 2000 - is that normal? but when not in imovie this thing runs like 36-42 i'd say.

    4) it gets warm but nothing crazy, and i have it on my lap

    5) i'm not sure but the speakers seem decent for a laptop

    6) this thing is dead silent, maybe if i could get my fans to spin over 2000? at 80 c i think it would...
