    interesting, last year, where macbook pro is engraved on the 15 inches, the space on top of the logo macbook pro, and below it was very little, it was a thin strip of Alu, on the new 15 inches ive seen yesterday, the place where it says macbook pro, is FAT!! its on a fat strip of Alu, there is a lot of space on top of the logo, as well as below, the 17 inches remain the same from last year, anyone notice this?:confused::confused::apple:

    Lol, a change in the size of a logo does not dictate a change in design.

    Yea I have noticed that, but the bezel where the camera is, is now thinner.

    SR = Santa Rosa = a code name for Intel's latest Centrino platform (which MBP technically does NOT have). The processors in the latest MBPs are caled Merom.

    SR = Santa Rosa.

    It's the Intel platform inside the MBPs

    Santa Rosa - the newer chips that were introduced this past summer.

    Edit: what he said.

    That's his point - that it's different on the newest mbp than it was on earlier mbps. (sr = Santa rosa, meaning the current generation of mbp)

    Then there should be no reason for this question to be asked ever again on this forum.

    Yeah right. :rolleyes:

    my point was that its been posted on macrumors a long, long time ago. How long has the 3rd Gen or SR MBP been out? Almost a year if not a year, no?

    It is also a reason why one can't convert a second gen MBP's screen to LED. the dimensions are different.

    Santa Rosa is a chipset not a processor by the way and all current laptops with Santa Rosa are using merom since penryn does not debut till early next year.

    The reason the MBPs are not fully Santa Rosa is simply because they use a broadcom/atheros wi-fi card rather than intel's pro wireless card

    Agreed, a subtle change for the better

    I also like how the green iSight indicator is "under" the bezel now :p

    Is it me or is the screen on the left slightly better looking than the screen on the right?

    Seriously, bluedoggiant, you've made 667 posts here on Mac Rumours, and have started 138 threads, that's over a thread every 5 posts :eek:
    Surely you must be running out of ideas?

    no, its a bad photo
    the room is dark, and the camera is focused on a dark part, exposing the majority of the picture correctly
    the laptop on the right has a brighter screen (its LED backlit, but may also be because its just set brighter) and the screen has been overexposed by the camera, making it appear whiter and therefore worse looking :)

    In what way? If you mean in terms of contrast, I'm sure it is just because the one on the right is LED backlit, therefore much brighter. It would probably look better in real life.

    Maybe he did long ago... ;) Just a joke!
    I have 703 posts per thread. Does that mean I do not have any ideas? :eek:
