Hello All, There are several reviews floating everywhere for the new macbook pro. Also i have read people complaining about glass display, fan noise, ...etc. I will give you my experience and I am sure it will help you in making buying decisions. I was having an early gen 2008 MBP, which I gave back to Apple and purchased this new one. The box had two seals on it, seems like it was reopened by Apple for some reason. The inside plastic was sealed. The power cord plastic was loose. Opened my laptop and before turning ON, looked at each detail. My keys on the keyboard are not crooked. The display had no dust inside it. It was nice and clear. My first impression: I was not much impressed to look at such a big change as compared to the earlier generation. Also all the reviews made me think negative. Then I turned the Laptop ON, registered it and immediately made a decision that I am returning this because it looks ugly and the screen is glossy and i am not impressed because i see reflections. All this was because of the bad reviews that are floating everywhere. After using it for a while I started liking the glossy display. This is not like the cheap gloss display on all the PCs we find now a days. This is totally different. I do not even feel that it it glass. Just looks like the matte with brighter colors. Keyboard: I do not have any problems with this new style keyboard. But personally like the old keyboard better. I also think that the old MBP looked more professional than this one. This notebook looks a bit like PCs now. The original attraction is gone. Looks like Apple designed this to save some money. But it is strong built though, so do not get me wrong. Trackpad: For me the new trackpad is a total disaster. Very hard to use in Bootcamp, little easy on mac. The hard click only works in the lower half of the trackpad and not in the upper half. Do now know what Apple was thinking while designing this trackpad. I think apple fans are just accepting this because they like apple and the computer is great in general. Overall will give 0 out of 10 Glass Display: Glass display is just simply great. But the Lcd is certainly a little bit lower quality than the previous generation MBP. Thats because some dark videos that were very clear on the earlier MBP are not as clear. But overall I am happy with this display. Will give 9 out of 10. Unibody: After looking at the Apple video of the design of the unibody, I am impressed. But I a neutral on this design. Still like the silver keyboard and silver border. Black is just not professional. Fan Noise: Fans are quiet most of the time just like the old MBP. Did hear some wierd fan noise once. Will be neutral this one Heat: Heat factor has greatly improved. Old 2008 MBP had more heat problems. Will give 10 out of 10 XP on Parallels and bootcamp: Runs perfect with no driver issues or any other problems. The fan runs at extremely high speeds on bootcamp for first 2 mins after startup, but gets slow after that. Trackpad is the worst thing in bootcamp. One has to use three fingers for right click. But again this is a MAC and not a PC. Speed: Havent done any benchmarks. But seems to be running quiet faster than the 2.5GHz earlier MBP. Will give 10 out of 10 Sound: Neutral on this one LCD hinges: The LCD is a bit loose. It can automatically move just by its weight. But does not create any issues with normal operation. Hardisk/Battery cover: It is a bit difficult to put the cover back as it should be. I am a good teck guy and it took me some efforts to put it back in. Do not open if not needed. Conclusion: Nice notebook and worth the price. Will buy it anytime. But would not even mind paying few hundred extra just to get the old MBP style back. For some reason this is not the PRO look. They are upto something on this one. Please get back if you have any questions.
