I didn't bough it, so this review is limited. Good things- keyboard is quite nice, but someone with smaller hands will have problems to reach keys- there are some significant clearance between certain keys. hard drive is very easy to replace. now lcd can move in a little bigger angle (back) than previous apple laptops. Screen quality. (but it has one minus too). It blows old macbook 100 times. Older generation macbook seems like some PC made in '80. Older generation macbook pro's screen is not so shameful. Speaker sound quality. Sure we need headphones for REAL sound, but older generation macbook's speakers are pathetic. bad things. Sorry, but screen is really too glossy. You cannot find any angle in which you cannot see either yourself or background behind you. Trackpad without any buttons. I just don't buy it. It took me too long time to fiddle with such trackpad to highlight some text. I just don't see it in a real life as useful as advertised- I talk about simple word editing job and I can imagine what hardship it going to cause for gamers (except might be one day games will be created according to apple like things going right now with ipod touch/iphone platform. In any other case you will need external mouse just to save time. So I will continue later, but here is my take: If you was dreaming about macbook, then buy shiny, new one, because upgrades are really significant (even if you loose fw port some you get much more other upgrades in return). Now if you need macbook pro, I wouldn't think that new shiny macbook pro is better. Bigger screen really annoys with reflections and we REALLY have to see performance improvements.
