    This is my first Unibody MBP, but I really dislike having all my ports jammed onto the left side of the unit. That side of my desk looks like a deformed octopus right now.

    Otherwise, I'm quite happy with it.

    That's a weird request taking into consideration that you do want a MBP 2010. If other people have problems, doesn't necessarily mean you would too. There aren't any major issues plaguing these new computers yet. I suggest you just go ahead and buy one, in the unfortunate event that you find a problem, have it returned to Apple for a new one.

    the problem is that there's no Apple Store in my country. we only have Apple Premium Authorized Resellers, and i don't think they will replace a macbook or something ! plus the macbook's are over priced over here due to shipping and stuff.. so am not ready to pay 2K+ for a macbook and found out later that it's deformed ! thx for the reply anyway..

    There's no country in the world to my knowledge that sells Apple products and denies returns / replacements if defective. That's illegal provided you're not buying it from a private seller who decides the return policy (eg. on eBay).

    Let's say you get to know about all the problems, then buy a MBP and find a problem - what will you do then ?

    That't not a 2010 MBP thing, It's been that way since the first unibodies.

    the graphic cards are a problem. could be much better.
    should we blame the dispute between intel and nVidia?

    I second the gfx switching issue. I opened up chrome and it was using the 330m and then opened up safari and it was using the intel.

    This directly impacts battery life and while I haven't had a good chance to test battery life, my first use off ac power did not live up to the 8-9 hours as advertised. And this is with basic internet usage and screen dimmed. We'll see after the calibration if it acts better.

    @hassoon if it is a european country. Just order online. By law you have 2 weeks to reverse the purchase and when you get the packet you are allowed to test the product as you would in a store. There is no restocking fee like they have in America of 10%, which is quite high.
    The only thing you have to pay is shipping but if it is free shipping all you pay is one way.

    Quit being a db and let the guy post. Jeez man, nothing better to do than jump on someone the second they post a new thread?

    Rather clever of Apple to put all of them on the left side. As the majority is right handed, there won't be any cords to disrupt your mouse movements, if you are using one.

    it's still illegal from private sellers, if the item is not as advertised, then they legally have to refund or replace the item, obviously if they sold it to you with the listing saying "Superdrive not functioning" then you got it and complained that the Superdrive was not working, you have no legs to stand on. but if it was sold stating it's in perfect working order, and turned up with dead pixels, they have not sent you what you purchased, which is illegal...

    they may think they can say "no returns" but the Sale of Goods Act trumps this statement.

    I dislike almost nothing about mine.

    If pushed I'd say the hard drive is a bit slow and drags on the speedy i7, but that's nothing a SSD can't fix.

    Biggest problem is really the GPU, 2nd biggest is in Bootcamp there is no Optimus switching.

    if you are gonna make me suffer thru an inferior nvdidia graphics card, at least give me optimus for cooling/battery management

    i really like mine, I LOVE the hires antiglare.
    I wish i could force it to use integrated graphics, instead of switching constantly and draining the battery quickly.
