I'm looking at grabbing the 17" June 09 Model. I suppose no bad/negative posts on here are taken that so far they seem okay as opposed to some of the other banter on the 13/15 MBP. any issues the with OEM 2.8/500GB HDD? I had an early 09 model from march but i travelled a bit for awhile and sufficed with a 13" uMB which is a great machine..and will be the companion to the 17" which will be my uberportable studio. thanks a bunch!
