    Well, it finally (and I mean *FINALLY* -- customizing the hard drive to the 160@7200 will really cost you in delivery time) arrived yesterday.

    I don't see any yellow areas on the screen, I love the keyboard, and no dead pixels. :)

    I've got the following setup on it now:
    - Adium
    - Firefox
    - XCode
    - VMWare Fusion (yes, I *have* to do visual studio work for a living

    I've got a MacStyles.com mac pad ordered to cover the wrist rest area, and will probably order from MyTego.com something for the back of the LCD.

    I'm also going to get Adobe creative suite for school.

    So now, I'm wondering what other things people find essential?
    I've heard of Aurora to use the mac as an alarm clock, which sounds nice (at least for the iMac, which we also recently purchased).
    I've also found textmate, which looks promising for programming.
    What good subversion client should I use?
    Any other recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Kevin

    Manufacture of your LED panel (found by System Preferences>Displays>click on the "Color" tab>Click "Open Profile">go to number 13. If you see 9C67 the manufacture is LG, 9C68 is is LG ... or do you see something else?


    Wk build,

    look at your seril number. Begins with W87 the next two are the week build.

    Yep--9C68 is Samsung. Not all Samsung displays are bad, though--I've got one and it is lovely with no yellowing or dead/stuck pixels that I can see.

    Grats on the purchase. I love mine. Personally, I use Dreamweaver, but TextMate is an excellent editor too. I also replaced Mail with Thunderbird but only because I'm so used to Thunderbird across my Windows and Mac machines. :D

    Been using it all day now ...

    Well, I've been using the MBP all day now. I had to take it in to the local authorized service center to get the shift key fixed (kept coming off). And I notice that the space bar is a bit squeaky when I press it (annoying, but only in a minor way -- i'll take it by them next time i'm around there).

    So far, though, I'm very pleased with the purchase. It's my 11th notebook over the past 15 years, so I'm reasonably familiar with my own preferences. :) And I like what I've encountered so far.

    Other than the squeaky key, I'm a happy mac'er.

    Kevin
