Yes the computer is astounding! I've been waiting about 2 months for this, and finally went out to the store and bought it. It did turn out to be more expensive than originally planned because of the applecare program, but as i can see it was all well worth it. I bought the 2.4 GHz, 15inch, Matte screen, god of a computer. Originally I thought to myself I would get a glossy screen, because of how much people enjoyed it. But I looked at the two in store, and it had smudges ALL over it, and I could see myself a few feet away. The glare was terrible, and the screens color didn't look as nice. Seeing my matte now is incredible, and although I can't criticize people who have chosen the Glossy display, I can't imagine mine being one. Anyways so far the computer is flawless. I'm one of those guys with terrible luck, and I can say my computer is pretty much perfect. No dead pixels, no yellow screen (unlessed viewed by side), and the computer pretty much awesome. Unless i'm installing something like photoshop or transferring large amounts of files between networks, the computer stays very cool. Connecting the external monitor was a breeze, I just took the converter thing in the box, used it, and it should worked. I have itunes, ichat, safari, and dashboard working and my temperture is about 50 C. Btw could some tell me what the number you guys use when using istatpro to determine the temperature, because i have lots of different numbers. My only concern with the computer is that when going to about my Harddrive, the capacity is 148.73GB and the available is 130GB. I thought it was supposed to be 160GB?... Anyways the computer is perfect, and I fully recommend it. People who go on these type of forums usually post about problems, but I decided on posting about the great computer i recieved... Expensive as hell though EDIT: Can anyone tell me some demo's to try and see how this baby works with some games? Thanks DOUBLEEDIT: Can anyone get ichat to work with video chats? It always gives me errors with all of my friends.
