Figured I should let the fence sitters know, I just got home from Argentina to find my MPB waiting for me (my credit card company loved that one), and this thing is fantastic. The 2.4 shipped from Amazon, can't detect any yellow issue (if it's there I certainly can't see it), flickering, loose trackpad, nada. Everything runs quickly and cool enough (from the old powerbook I had it doens't seem any hotter anyway). Only thing I could knock it on is the viewing angle, but that's within spec. Man I've missed OS X. Did all the updates, and then a reset of the pram after and it's all gravy. I think my manufacturing date was week 29, and the screen is the 9C68, so Samsung right? Obviously it's matte, as I got it from Amazon. Came with the new mini magsafe too I believe, although it's the same size as the old Powerbook adaptor, and my Dad's macbook adaptor. Maybe I got lucky, though I'd like to think by now most of the big kinks have been worked out, but I couldn't be happier with my decision. Now I jus have to get it all ready before the move to Amsterdam! (I'm doing the whole world traveling thing alphabetically apparently ) A quick review on the Brenthaven Trek backpack though, which I picked up for this thing as well without seeing it. This thing is huge, too huge I think. The colors are fine, though not as flashy as the website picture, but I think I might have to return this and take a look at those STM Revolution bags instead. I was interested in being able to carry more than just the laptop, but this thing makes me feel like a backpacker again haha. Build quality is solid though. Ok, gonna go back to playing around, and loading up all those travel pictures!
