17" Macbook pro 1 year old! January 2009 saw the first 17" Macbook pro "unibodies", sporting a maximum of 2.93 ghz processor, 4 or 8 GB ram and solid state HDs (optional). They were the first unibodies with firewire 800 and backlit keyboard. The screen was "gorgeous" and had better colour rendition than any previous notebook. Some said the anti-glare option (unique to the 17") was preferable, other not ... How is your one year old faring? As for mine, I couldn't be more satisfied. I´ve no incidents to report and the machine has been used several hours each day. I spilled some coffe on the keyboard, but it had no negative effect - in fact the computer was just a little more snappier the next couple of hours. I'm considering switching to SSD, but at the time there's no real need. Battery is good (see snapshot). I got my wife a 13" with low specs, and it has had a few issues, including a HD break down which had us reinstall everything. We're currently running snow leopard on both machines and are backing up to a 2 TB time capsule. Suma sumarum: The 17" feels almost brand new. Happy birthday, sweetie!
