    HI,
    did anyone ordered a 17" MBP with the High-Res LED screen?
    I DID yesterday morning at 11:30am, and and when I go to order status on apple.com it shows on the configuration:
    17in HI-RES SCREEN WS
    NOT LED !!!!!!

    Does anybody has this problem?? :confused:
    or should I call apple about this? :(

    Would apple send me an old High-Res with no LED???

    If they say it's supposed to be LED, then there is no way there are going to send you on old display for the simple reason that the new mbps are getting built in china as we speak, thus they will be putting in a new one. But to avoid headache in case it does happen, just call them up, it will only take a minute.

    I ordered that one too, I wouldn't worry about it. During the order is says specifically "17-inch Hi-Resolution LED Widescreen Display" that short denotation may just be an old term in their system. Again, don't worry about it.

    Thank you so much!! I am a graphic designer & first time switcher! I'm very excited! :D And I want to do it right

    I hope that it doesn't has the yellowish defect on the screen, and I really wish they bumped the brightness level a little bit more.

    17" HI RES LED SCREEN
    2.5ghz penryn
    250gb HD
    2 gb RAM

    Great! I was thinking of purchasing more RAM, is that deal from Newegg the best one? It sounds like it, ...also I'm looking for a sleek yet protective case, do you guys have any suggestions?

    That's an excellent deal on RAM I thought...I mean the upfront cost is higher, but the rebates take it down $15 per stick:

    Here's the protective sleeve I got. I bought it from Apple just to keep things simple, it looks nice and on Amazon the 15" got great reviews, so I figured the 17" isn't bad. The one review on the Apple Store doesn't really pertain to the overall operation of the case, more like a lack of pockets or something that person wanted:

    I hope this helps some.

    yeah if you look on Apples site, they no longer offer the 17'' hi-res screen without the led
