    the only way for that apple to not glow is if the screen doesn't light up

    As for me, I love my i7 15" 8gb but I don't believe I'm getting even close to the battery life advertised. More like 4 hours instead of 8. And that's just with web browsing and IM

    Why wouldn't you want the logo to glow?!?!?!?!?!!?:confused:

    I have never had any problems with the "sharp" edges... At all. Problems I have: 1) All mbp trackpads have an area on the bottom that isn't sensitive if you start moving your finger there. I have started a Thread about this it is SOOO annoying for me because I often try to start there. What is the point of having one big trackpad/button if the very bottom is a "thumb rest"? 2) EVERY 13 inch at best buy had some sort of scratch from the factory. Very annoying if I am going to pay premium I demand premium quality. 3) Crap speakers. I am sure that the 15 and 17 have better speakers, but the internal 13 inch speakers are like the iphone speakers of notebooks. 4) No separate audio in/out. the 13 inch mbp has a "combined" audio in/out jack. I see obvious problems with this, especially for recording music.

    However, I could go on for hours explaining why I LOVE my mbp and why it has convinced me to never go back to a pc again. I am definitely more than happy with it. Hell, the first thing I hear when I start it up is Exodus Honey by Honeycutt whilst cruising through space. I guess most of my complaints are about the limitations of a 13 inch (except for the trackpad issue, ALL mpb's have that "feature" and it needs to be fixed), but the smaller form factor, improved battery life, and cost make it worth it. :apple:

    That's interesting that you say that about the speakers, I think the speakers in mine are actually pretty decent, although I'm no expert in audio. Compared to the speakers in my roommates' computers though, mine are much louder, and I think have better sound quality even compared to a 17" HP with H/K audio. Maybe you just got a bad pair.

    your not ever going to get studiophile... or premium quality sound from any notebooks speakers.

    those speakers should never be used for music or movies unless you have no other options. get some good monitors for your place and quality headphones for when away.

    having said that i think the new macbook pros speakers sound really well. i just dont use them when im serious about sound.

    The speakers in my 17" are pretty decent for the size...better than I expected.

    The sharp edges are present, but haven't caused me any bloodshed.

    Your speakers actually have holes hahah. I actually like the sharp edges. They aren't comfortable at all and it look amazing to have them.

    Apple is NOT a premium brand anymore... it used to be... now it is just a regular brand... they want to get the most out of their products... so they use the cheapest components (perhaps... for some components they don't the cheapest of the cheapest...).
    If you think that you should get a premium product because it has a "pro" postfix or because the brand advertises itself as premium... you're wrong... same applies if you think that because you paid 2000$ you have the right to get premium.

    You get what you want to get... Apple overprices its products and we all know that. If you buy, it's because you want; but Apple doesn't sell premium products hence you cannot demand one of those I'm afraid

    mmmm it's premium because it is built so much better than most, if not all, pc's and the operating system itself is much better. If they put their operating system in a crap plastic windows box (i've used enough to have a warranted dislike for them), it could be very cheap. What other company makes they're pc's out of a single piece of aluminum and use a glass trackpad and screen the way a mac does.

    And I could care less if it is called macbook or macbook pro. I demand having no scratches out of the box because it was nearly $1500. I don't think that is too ridiculous. Even if it was a $400 windows computer I would be pissed if it came with a pre-made scratch.

    Agreed...I can live with my own scratches, but not someone else's. My MBP arrived sans-flaws.
