I desperately needed a new 15" MBP and was gutted at the recent updates. Still those horrid glossy screens, the ugly chiclet keyboard and, to make it worse, a battery I can't easily change. I had to make a decision - put up and buy one or start looking at PCs. So I looked at Viaos and a Toshiba very, very seriously but couldn't face going back to Windows, so had no choice to get one of these new, crappy MBPs. And I hated handing over my £1,499. But I was totally wrong. The glossy screen is fine - and the improvement in detail, colour and contrast compared to my early 2008 MBP are well worth it. The battery - the more I thought about it the more I realised that I have NEVER replaced a battery on any of my past laptops. And seeing my battery remaining go up to 10hrs yesterday was a lovely thing to see! The SD reader is a lovely addition that I've used about half a dozen times already. It's tonnes quieter than my old one and, when it wakes from sleep, the CDROM drive doesn't make a noise like a 1980's VCR. I love the fact there's no catch to open the screen and the unibody means no more creaking. So I don't think I'll ever doubt Apple again. I think I know what I want but yet again Apple have shown me what I REALLY want.
