*Edit* I should clarify that this is an on-going review, where I continuously post my thoughts and discoveries as I use my MBP more and more. _____________ Start: Just got my MBP 17 with the listed options. I was really excited; I ran downstairs when I saw the truck out my window. Opened it up, and was very impressed by the packaging. I just cleared off my desk, and plugged in the computer. Can I start to use it, or do I have to wait for it to fully charge? I remember reading somewhere that I should wait for it to fully charge, and wait 2 hours after that, and then I should unplug it and use it until the battery is exhausted. I think this would be important for the first charge cycle outside the factory. The battery indicator has full bars, although the magsafe adapter glows amber now. When I first put it in, it was green, but it turned amber within 10 seconds. My main concern before even using it is that I noticed that the bottom panel is "loose". When I press the center of the panel, you can feel a little give/play, and sometimes it makes a noise. Sometimes, I feel it even when I pick it up! I didn't notice this on any of the units in the Apple store. I picked them up to see how they felt, and they were rock solid. Anybody else have the same problem? Will Apple replace it? Anyways, I am really excited to start using it. I can't wait! I will keep you updated, and update this review. BTW: What is that black plastic wrapping for that comes with the user-guide and the DVDs? It is just empty, black/clear plastic. It looks like it should have a DVD in there...am I missing something?
