With my iBook and Powerbook I would have to hold the eject key down for about a second before the disk would eject. This delay saved me a lot of hassle when I would accidentally strike the eject key while attempting to press the delete(backspace, if you ask a windows user) key. This doesn't seem to be happening on the MacBook Pro. I called Apple and they said that their documentation did not indicate that the MacBook Pro has this feature. I'm not necessarily sure that's the case. Any other MacBook Pro owners have any input on this issue. While I can understand that some people may not have appreciated this feature, it seems it would be a good idea to include a Sys. Prefs. checkbox to activate or deactivate this feature.
