    First, thanks for the Beginner's Guide and for this thread Diatribe.
    So, this is the best place I can think of to post this question before I start a new thread. My situation is I just ordered an new 17" Penryn MBP High-Res matte. My question (which I'm pretty sure I've seen a thread about before, but can't seem to find it) is what are all the things I need to check to make sure my computer is in proper order before the 14 day return period is up?
    And thanks!

    EDIT: The thermal paste issue is one I'm pretty concerned about especially considering I'm not particularly tech-minded and would be very afraid to take apart my computer.

    Your best bet is to open a new thread if you want more opinions but in any case the only thing I always check is for dead pixels. The rest is not necessary IMO.
    The new Penryns don't get that hot anyway so you'll be ok.

    Thanks Diatribe. I might consider starting a thread after doing a little more searching. I've heard the Penryn MBPs are supposed to run cooler. However on this thread I notice particularly in posts 218 and 220:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=5193260&postcount=220
    that even the Penryns seem to run hot albeit cooler than the Meroms apparently. On the other hand I'm not sure what arbitrary/ideal temp the people on that thread are expecting their MBP to run at.
