    Anyone else notice how the screen lights up the inside of the headphone port? Useful for locating in the dark, and generally just very cool!!

    No idea if it was an intentional design element, but considering how every mm inside and out has been laboured over, and how the notebooks use the backlight to light up the apple logo, I like to think this was another touch of genius apple design :)

    I just assumed it was the backlight illuminating the inside of the device rather than an intentional design element.
