    You should know that these types of threads are entirely useless without pics. ;)

    I was going to post benchmarks and stuff, but actually had to work rather than play with it... until now :)

    I just left it there updating, then two colleagues and I spent literally 20mins looking at the battery bay.

    It's from London. Slight differences will happen between theirs and ours. (Assuming you are American.)

    happy with the glossy screen? i'm a glossy advocate but it's interesting to hear other people's experience.

    Nice old tiPB next to it. Guess history repeats itself in the design world as well.

    You don't happen to have one of those incase neoprene cases do you? I am thinking about picking one up from my local bookstore but I have heard they are tight on the old MBP so they would be near impossible on this one.

    Aloha flamejob,

    I will be joining the ranks of new MacBook Pro owners this weekend. A coworker of mine has offered $1,000 for my 2006 MacBook Pro (2.16GHz Core 2 Duo 2.5GB RAM), so I'll be able to purchase one for half price, not to mention the military discount I'll also receive (I'm retired Navy). I'm stoked to the max - can't wait until I can post some pics of my new addition. At least my current MacBook Pro is going to a good home :D

    Are the Australian & North American MBPs exactly the same (except for the plug)? Any other differences at all?

    Hey one quick question...

    Is the color of the backlit keys white or blue?

    It's bluish-white. Think the color of fluorescent lights.
