    I was wondering when this was going to happen. I'm in Forum Spy anyways so I don't even know what the forum layout is anymore. :cool:

    i dont agree with having separate macbook and macbook pro forums, maybe just for the next week with all of the new threads, but there are a lot of questions that go either way and need to be in the same forum

    just my 2 cents

    Yeah, now when people post threads pertaining to MBPs, the people who are looking for MB stuff can''t happen upon their thread and reply to it!

    Not a great idea, products are very similar, should have same forum.

    Filters needed but not a separate forum

    I understand the desire for a separate forum but lets face it there are a lot of people doing good stuff on both sides of the dividing line.

    If only we can get rid of the noise. You know? The posts about cracked top cases and dented MBP from dropped anvils.

    You can post the first part on the MBP forum and the other one on the MB!

    This is :"Should i get a MBP?See MB forum", "should i get a MB?See MBP forum"!!!!!!!!

    Lol!!!!:D

    1st test drive...

    Hi all.
    Wasn't sure where to post... at the Lehigh Valley Apple Store last night, I "test drove" the new MBP. It's incredible, in my opinion. The gestural trackpad is really something. Using three fingers to go back and forth through docs & web pages: sweet.

    Still bothered by the glossy screen. I don't think it would be practical for my interests (and my home office isn't dark enough, I would guess). Still, everything looked wonderful. FCP launched quickly & performed well. I liked the under-the-trackpad mouse click; much more positive feedback than I'd feared.

    Well, just thought I'd share. I'm still using a Powerbook Rev. E, so this thing is a quantum leap.

    Trackpad frozen

    Hi there,

    Have a very simple but disturbing problem,

    Yesterday, i waited for a download to finish in the safaris download window, i started to download fission( a simple audio encoding tool), went to watch tv,
    and when i sited back to the nb, the trackpad was frozen, for some luck i have a tiny little sweet mouse alaways by myself, for any cases...
    After rebooting, it worked again, but i was curious and started another download, and waited again, if it happens..
    And it did, so this is a very strange bug for the macbook pro...:)

    I will try to upgrade the driver for the trackpad, if it is possible, actually didnt had the time yet to find that out, have to work ...:)

    But tomorrow update is comming.

    Somebody please make this a separate thread.

    To do it, you need the install CD that came with the computer. Insert it and do a clean install.:)

    to those of you who have desperately searched for macbook protection that actually...

    to those of you who have desperately searched for macbook protection that actually...works. Well i have found the solution for those who hate hard cases attached to the macbook pro, to those who hate those stupid silicone keyboard covers. They never look right. And finally this goes out to tall those who have tried invisible shield but hate that it makes your macbook shiny. If apple thought that it looked better shiny, they would have made it that way.

    So while all this problems were presented to be upon my recent purchase of new Apple 17" Macbook pro. I started to get annoyed a:apple:nd eventually gave up.

    Isn't there a way that I can protect my Macbook Pro but not sacrifice any of the cosmetics
    Well, I have found the solution. There's an ol' chap from London whose ebay website I was liked to a while back-

    What he offers is different that all the rest. His full body protection is similar to that of the Invisible Shield from ZAGG. The material is similar, however, his protective film is done with a matte finish just like the macbook pro. So upon installation feel like it should. In addition to this you get a keyboard that applies to each and every key separately, unlike most keyboard covers that cover the entire keyboard and make it rather hard to type normally. THey are bulky. With a sticker that applies to each key separately to don't have to worry about changing your typing habits to conform to a silcone keyboard protector. but each key remains perfectly protected from discoloration or from becoming shiny.

    Anwyay, The full body protciton kit for 17" US$25.00

    THis includes the full body (top and bottom) proteciton (matte finish)
    Wrist rest guard and trackpad, all matte as well and the indivual key covers to protect the keyboard. they also throw in a protector for your macsafe AC unit

    Anyway, just wanted to let anybody know whois interested that this stuff is available. It took me forever to find it. IT was actually found on an ebay store based in London.

    Here is the link, I hope you enjoy it...
