    After a year of waiting I bought a new MBP. It has multi-touch and the upgraded processors.

    Specs

    -15"
    -2.5GHz
    -2GB RAM
    -Matte Widescreen
    -.Mac

    Review

    The laptop is an amazing one. Only a couple complaints

    -No redesign
    -trackpad is too small ( I like the air trackpad)
    -Have to buy remote

    Good Things

    -Fast
    -Powerful
    -Light
    -Thin
    -Reliable

    But I still have some questions...

    -What are some good widgets?
    -What are some good FREE software
    -Help with Pixelmator
    -Any other comments or suggestions on software are gladly taken

    i rarely ever use my remote. i'm sure that's why they made it an option since it's rarely used by most users.

    congrats though...up the ram to 4 and you'll be very very happy with it.

    I would get it replaced, go to a apple store and see a genius about a exchange.

    You paid alot of money for your mbp, so it should be perfect :D

    i rarely use mine as well, pretty much never. Good thing I have 10 of them from all 10 exchanges from the headachy mbp yellow defects and screens. I got 3 sitting infront of me on my desk still in original packaging! And rest of 6 somewhere else with 1 opened which I'd love to use on my mac pro (which doesnt work) or does it?

    This should be reason enough to use the remote.

    See it in action.

    you can also use the remote to control Keynote presentation, of which, as a student, I found it very useful
