    Hi there,

    Just a few words. I received today my new MBP, ordered an hour after the event... and that's what happened :

    First of all configuring languages, wifi etc I initially got to unexpected reboot.
    Then 3 times, half of the screen instantly becoming black.
    Since then... many different display issues occuring unexpectedly.

    The following is my favourite :

    Any, Ever-seen ? ideas ? suggestions ?
    Just waiting night to end... to call apple :)

    Floppy Screen

    Anyone noticed the weak hinges? If like me you enjoy using your MBP in bed then you're probably aware of the issue. I'm not advocating a design fault here just pointing out that it is no longer easy to lay down flat with your MBP.

    I ordered this one, half an hour after the launch, over the apple store on line

    it's the basic 2.4Ghz MBP 15,4, with just a 7200rpm hard drive
