    Just got my awesome 17" MacBook Pro and I am loving it. The issue is when I have to go to a meeting its difficult to carry while open. I do not close the lid because I do now want to close my connection to the vpn. So what do others do to carry theirs around? Do you just close it or do you do something else?

    I think caffeine might help you with this. It prevents the computer from going to sleep. I don't use it, but its recommend a lot here.

    Dude. I salute your biceps for dragging that thing around to meetings. Can you see over the top at people talking to you? :D

    Just tried caffeine and it did not work. I closed my lid and computer when right to sleep. I'll try sleepless

    I see. How do you feel there's going to be another model released in a few months more than likely?

    I'm thinking on buying a 17" Macbook Pro now but I'm not sure whether I should wait for the newer models.

    Actually its nice cause I can hide while I am in meetings :)

    Honestly I do not care. I was running a crappy white macbook that could not run virtual machines and host oses at the same time. If one releases next week, ok well.

    Congratulations on your new MBP jrock, I´m planning to buy mine today, the 17 inches too.

    That was mean Liquinn. We are all in the same ship, to wait or not to wait... that´s the dilemma... Right now I have the mid 2009 17 MBP, and I´m more than happy with it, I want a new one just because... because... I´m a techno fetichist I think.

    A new one? When? June? Available in July? that´s 5 or 6 months from now, and then what? Another revision in february 2012? Then June 2012? It´s a never ending game.

    Just my opinion.
