Well to my great surprise my replacement MacBook Pro arrived 3 days earlier than scheduled, however I was out of town so I didn't get to open it until last night. I had returned one already with dents and scratches as well as some crooked keys and a battery door moving all over the place. I talked with apple care and arranged for a replacement to be sent out. After dealing with some credit card troubles the transaction was finally cleared and the computer was shipped. I have to say I went over this thing with a microscope and I can find not a dead pixel, nor a scratch. No backlighting problems, a secure unmoving battery door, just one flawless MacBook Pro. I can't tell you how relived I am especially after reading post after post about defects that people were finding. I had definitely mentally set myself up for the worst possible situation with this replacement, but it is perfect. So to all those who are having troubles with defects I say be persistent. You are paying close to $2500-3000 on these bad boys and in my opinion they better be perfect when you get them. So keep trying because perfect ones are out there and the QC problems are most likely staring to sort themselves out by this point. Thanks for reading my post if you stuck with it.
