I just received my new 15" 2.4 MBP, and boyoboy, I feel like a 10 year old who got his first RC car!! This machine is flipping sweet, and I don't recall having this much joy in opening the other 4 machines I own. I also had tons of fears about malfunction or manufacturing defects that are posted on the forums (yellow gradient, too much heat, Airport), but thankfully, everything seems to be just right. I am getting great wireless signal, if not better than my Windows counterpart, the screen is bright, and crisp white, the heat is bearable (have not taken actual readings). I am really enjoying my first Mac, and I have been cuddling it as if it was my first born- wiping it every now and then, using very gentle grips to take it from the table, heck I even wipe the table totally (even though its clean) with swiffer each time I put my laptop down! I have also been driving my roommates crazy by turning the house lights on and off... to check out the sweet keyboard backlighting. Just wanted to share the excitement with my Mac community! And I guess I have a LOT to learn before I become proficient with OS X. (And pray to God that nothing breaks in this machine)!
