    I just bought a 2011 MBP 17" to replace my 17" Unibody C2D, what I noticed are the keys... the seem to have a different coating on them that makes staining them with the fingers a lot harder.... I have no greasy fingers at all and wash my hands constantly and after a few strokes my keys in my old mbp would look a bit glossy in places... I just noticed this does not happen with the new mbp... you guys noticing this or am I hallucinating??? lol

    Maybe it's because you are used to your old more worn keys?

    No, I noticed this with the first unibody I bought when it was brand new, since I was used to the silver keyboard of the aluminum ones...

    Yep I noticed this as well starting on the 2010 MacBooks. The keys dont get nearly as shiny as quickly as they do on my first 2009 MBP.
