Marvellous though these machines are, there are issues relating to the MBPs. There is a lot to be thankful for, but there are concerns. Many users (and potential customers) hanker for a matte screen on the 13-inch and 15-inch models. People who don't want to see themselves onscreen are willing to pay extra for this feature. Sheer obsinacy seems to deny the arrival of this feature. The SATA 1.5 / 3.0 issue was quickly solved... Probably becasue of the outrage of hundreds of users (and potential customers). There was (is?) a torrent of complaints regarding, if I recall correctly, an 8600 board. More seriously... Someone's magsafe connector recently caused a fire in their 15-inch MBP. Here's the MR link: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=729223 ===== Many MR subscfribers point to a decline, perceived or real, in Apple's quality control. ===== What do you think are the issues relating to MBPs? I'm not just moaning. I want to know what I'm getting into. Thanks.
