    Does not have more problems that the "old" not unibody MBP however when people receive a "good" MBP they usually keep to themselves as when people receive a defective (or rather not perfect one) they say it openly so you are more likely to see someone complaining than someone saying its a great machine.
    Have said that, I would strongly recommend to buy it directly off apple, since that would easy up any further inconvenience you might have, in fact I dont think buying off apple will cost you a lot more 1487 euro ~= 1928 U.S dollar isnt it? thats nearly what it's worth ($1999) furthermore from apple you can get the student discount (if you are not student you could ask a friend or someone you know to buy it for you) which if I recall correctly is ~= $200 (~= 150 euro) though I do not know if thats true for euro countries though.

    Not likely, unless they can track the item's receipt as being from an Apple store.

    According to the Apple Italy site, a new 2.66 MacBook Pro is 2249 Euros. That sounds like a fantastic deal, and there's no point in spending all that extra money for such a minor speed increase.

    No - they are not compelled to give you a new computer - they will probably just fix it.

    The model he is looking at retailed at $2499, not $1999. However, it also was probably more than $2499 with taxes and such. It was speed-bumped recently, but not by much.
