Well I finally managed to pickup my new MBP from my mums where it was delivered. And from what I can see it looks perfect. No dead pixels, no backlight bleed that I can see. Bit late to start installing etc so will start bright and early tomorrow . Here are the specs: 17" MBP 1900x1200 Glossy 160 GB @ 7200rpm My only mac to date is an old Emac, its served me well and has mad me love Tiger. But it is a bit slow at opening things etc so can't wait to play with the MBP.
