I got my Macbook Pro today. Sweet machine. I purchased the 15.4", 2.4 Ghz, 2 GB, 160 GB HD system. Geekbench score of 3201. I had to call three different stores to find one that had it in stock. The screen is nice, no dead pixels, very bright from the start (Matte display). I don't think it is any brighter than the 17" display, but it is really nice. I got an educational discount and a free nano also. Pretty nice deal.
