    Bought two MacBook Pro this week - one 15" and one 17".

    The 15" was perfect.

    The 17"' trackpad was awfully loud and making not one, but two loud clicks.

    Exchanged it. Got a new one. Going down to the 15", because I feared that's just how 17"ers are.

    The screen of the 15" was completely on the left side of the frame with a big black line along the right side.

    Exchanged it.

    Got a 15" with a heartbreakingly poor loudspeaker output. Left loudspeaker hardly worked, right one yes. Checking the serial number that unit was produced in April - must have been one of the first ones leaving the assembly line.

    Checking the serial of the perfect 15" I got earlier this week: made in July.

    Crisp awesome loudspeaker sound.

    Can you believe it? Didn't give up yet and am down on my knees that next time, next time I get a properly working unit.

    Are these new or refurbs?

    So the one you hav enow has crisp sound, so it's good then? No more replacements, right? No next time then.

    Nope, I need two, one for the family, one for work.

    They were sold as brand new - but got the one produced in July at a dealer, the April one at an Apple store.

    So trying a new source this time.

    Painfully frustrating.

    Other than the fact you had to get them fixed (stuff happens) it must be nice to have two new Macbook Pros!

    The display on my MBP i7 is off center toward the left as well. It bothers me, but I almost never notice it.
