    Comparing the 15' to this... Of cuz its quite some additional weigh! But... I simply love it! The resolution is amazing! Everything seems so tiny!!

    And of course the battery life is WOWWWW...

    That's the exact same model I have! It's a fantastic machine. save up for an SSD when you get around to it.

    Yup, from HWZ with the same nick.

    SSDs are really expensive now, I wish I can get a Macbook too.

    Am in the process of saving up for one, doing some reading up so I don't end up asking stupid questions. :D

    Sadly (but in a good way) I just gave up mine to my Graphic Design daughter (college) ;) I bought it back in Jan and had a storied past due to first delivery being on that plane crash. Im now just like everyone else waiting for the next big thing for the MBP ;) This time around, Im getting Anti-Glare. Enjoy yours my friend...sigh :)

    ², I would have opted for a matte aswell, definately with this resolution.. Ah well, personal choice I guess eh?

    Totally. there's nothing wrong with waiting for the SSD. I am glad I got one though.

    Congrats on your purchase! Man, I bet it's sweet!!!
    I will be ordering a 17" MBP CTO as well in a few weeks, but I'm kind of torn between matte and glossy.
    Enjoy! :D
