what i really want to know is how they made the screen matte, or if its a normal glass display with a matte screen cover. because if they can make a 17 inch with a matte screen without ruining the new look, why cant they do it with the 15 inch lol.

The matte screen does not have the Black Bezel; it is silver.


There seems to be no reason not to offer it now in the 15" model, maybe they will on the next round of updates.

123Free: congrats on the purchase! More pics and review please, especially with relation to the battery life.

Congrats. You have the first one it seems. It is like owning the first corvette.

How is the sound with the built in speakers?

I'm also interested in the run time on the battery. Start iTunes and run it until it quits with a visualizer--time that!

I agree more posts of the pictures and I will believe this guy. If he shows 3 usb ports than its the 17". So far it looks exactly like the 15" version. FAKE for now!
