    It is the 15 inch Glossy - Screen looks awesome.

    2.4
    2 GIG RAM, 2 1 GIG Sticks (That sucks, If I wanted to add later).

    Here is a shot from system profiler

    It seems just like my old one on the outside. No differences whatsoever.

    It is what is on the inside that counts!

    The Hard drive is 160GB Fujitsu and the SuperDrive says ATA Bus:

    MATSHITADVD-R UJ-857E:

    Model: MATSHITADVD-R UJ-857E
    Revision: ZA0E
    Serial Number:
    Detachable Drive: No
    Protocol: ATAPI
    Unit Number: 0
    Socket Type: Internal
    Low Power Polling: Yes

    They told me that none of the Apple retail stores would have them in stock...wow, congratulations, I am envious, but pissed at the same time.

    How does the LED backlight compare to the non-Santa Rosa MBP?

    If you would like to help a lot of people out, could you print out a protractor and measure the opening angle of the display?

    Many user, including myself, didn't like 5-10 degree change from the Powerbooks to the MacbookPros.

    You have to pay tax at the store, right? Thats like an extra 150$+ here in michigan for the high end one. You dont have to pay online, or do you? I'll order online if i'm saving that much.

    It depends whether Apple has a physical presence (i.e. Apple store) in your state.

    Who did? Never trust them again. ;)

    The Apple store in San Francisco had a bunch (maybe 50, at least), when I picked mine up this morning. I've heard other stores were well stocked as well.

    The five Apple people I talked to on the phone. I had a hard time believing it, so I called four times, then the guy who I placed my order with told me that if I went to a store I would have to wait at least a week. Maybe they were thinking I meant stores like CompUSA or something when I said Apple retail store....Whatever. Very nice machine!

    My protractor's in the shop, but I can tell you that my new LED display MBP doesn't even open as far as my one-year-old MBP 2.16. It's not a personal tragedy, but I do miss the open-wide ability of earlier models.

    I'm going to step away, then read this again. Tell me I didn't read the hinge is WORSE? This is a deal breaker. What are they thinking wih this?

    Thanks!

    Darn, kind of disappointing that Apple's own operation is spreading misinformation. I hate to bust out the conspiracy theory, but maybe they were discouraging you from shopping the 'old-fashioned' way to possibly squeeze a commission out of you through a phone sale?

    It could just be new and stiff, but my new screen definitely doesn't open as far as my old one sitting right next to it.

    As I mentioned, it could just be that I've flexed the older hinge enough to 'stretch' it a bit, but here are the two screens next to each other at maximum deflection.

    Sheesh, remind me to clean up the area a bit next time I post a picture. Embarrassing. :eek:

    Well, i have 2 apple stores about 45 minutes away each.

    I dont see why it matters? Does the physical store charge tax? And does the online store not charge tax?

    I don't have one. Nor a Macbook even, but when tested at the store, the Macbook opened more. Going on memory, your older version in the pic does seem to open more and perhaps there was some stretch? If these things 'do' give a bit, I'd really like to know that. If not - the pic is scarey and Apple needs to understand not everyone uses these things on a standard desk with chair situation.

    Does the old one's lid feel loose or does it flop a bit? Wish you had a Macbook to compare with. But great picture. Thanks! Maybe I need to hit a store to compare old vs. new side by side as well as the Macbook. Further, I wonder if one could tweek the hinge to allow it to open more?

    The online store is free ship but does charge tax. I wish I knew how though. State or by the city you reside in? I want to weigh getting it via Amazon vs. the Apple store with free iPod deal.
