Came at 8:55 this morning, nice and early. From taking it out of the box was up and running within 10 minutes, which my dear old father found hard to believe!! First thing that struck me was how big the thing was!!! Really glad i opted for the bigger screen!!! Then came the scare. Turned it on and after reading the posts in here, began examining for dead/stuck pixels and to my horror, found about 10-15 white pixel sized dots over my screen. Fortunately was just dust and after giving the screen a good wipe, so far, not found any dead pixels (after boot ups). But after reading the dead pixel threads in this forum, automatically feared the worst. Start Up: 19 seconds to start up. Impressive!!!!!! The Screen: Exactly as was said on here, very very glossy and I can understand why people on this forum don't like it. But in all honesty it doesnt really bother me, as it is positioned in my room where there is very little reflection (ie not directly opposite a window). Tonight will be installing xp pro using bootcamp, and giving the speakers a good test, plus transfering the stuff from my ibook onto here. But most definately, so far so good!!!!
