    Are the recent batches of MacBook Pros OK compared to the early ones/reports of yellow tints, flickering, etc? Were there every any evidence saying that MBPs built in this or that week were the ones that had bad screens? There are about 5 -7 days of waiting time on new MBPs.. Perhaps they halted production to fix the issues?

    (i ordered mine last night.. will ship by the 4th of july, so im hoping that apple/samsung/lg has corrected whatever was wrong)

    I was thinking something very similar cause I ordered on the 5th of June and just received it yesterday (June 25). And so far, (just one day of use) I see no flaws - I believe it is the Glossy LG screen (not sure if it is LG, don't know how to tell yet but will learn soon).

    So far
    - no dead pixels
    - no yellow tint (except when viewed from extreme side angles- but that appears to be a normal thing with the LEDS)
    - Fans turn on fine (according to istat)
    - No heat issues
    - Everything else works great.

    Being a long time laptop owner (NEC, Gateway, Compaq, Alienware, now MBP) I have never been so satisfied with a Laptop before. It seemed that the higher end Laptop I would get the more things would go wrong (example Alienware came with several dead highly faded pixels, broken DVD/CD drive, two major flaws on the outside chassis, random shutdowns, the list just keeps going)

    The Macbook Pro is simply amazing - and yes I was worried I would have several problems, but all so far is perfect!!

    I highly doubt this... the delays are likely due to demand for the product and nothing more.

    I can easily see that being true. This was a 'big' update for the MBP, second only to a new enclosure really what with having a brand new chipset, and there must have been a lot of pent-up demand. These are awesome machines and I can imagine demand being a little overwhelming before dropping off ahead of Leopard.
