    Is there any huge difference in the case design and the case materials for these new MacBook Pros? From the photos, they look exactly identical to the 2010 units to me, except for the addition of the Thunderbolt port. Is there any real difference in the case design or is it all just an upgrade of the internal components (processor, graphics card)?

    Anybody know? Did Apple do anything to the case design (ie make it thinner or improve on the edges or anything to make the new cases different from the chassis and case design of the 2010 models)???

    Exact same case...I will be checking to see if they used Pentalobe screws on these though.

    That is something I am very curious about as well. If I decide to upgrade to the 2011 I would definitely want to add the extra RAM and SSD myself, and not pay the ridiculous price from Apple to have them factory-installed. You can save up to $500 by doing it yourself!
