    Just got home with my 17".

    I called the Trafford Centre store and they told me no stock till tomorrow. I called again, they said they had them. I got there and they said they weren't selling them till later. I asked someone else and they sold it to me!

    You paid 2499 dollars for this?

    Also, which imac is that on the background? 27 inch or 21.5 inch?

    Couldn't tell you, I was too busy trying to be the first person to unbox it! I'm uploading a video and then doing a hands on.

    Engadget reports that 15 inch MBP with quad core process or is getting almost 9500 in geekbench. His MBP should get very close to that.

    Does it have the Pentalobe screws on the bottom or is it the standard Phillips like before. I know the iPhone 4 went to those and I'm trying to make sure so I don't get a surprise when I try to install my ram, ssd, and data doubler tonight.

    Again, is the outer casing (top cover of display, outer casing) more reflective than the 2010 models? From these photos it looks like the outer casing is glossy and reflective, where the previous models were just matte brushed aluminum.

    Standard 00 Phillips size screws. I just cracked open a 17" and it's basically the same inside as the older model. Casing shine also looks the same to me.
