This is my first post here, but I have been doing extensive reading over various threads here regarding the Macbook Pro. A little background info: I have been building and using PC's for several years and am in need of a new laptop. I currently have a very powerful desktop PC, but want a full featured laptop. I will be starting law school in July and need a laptop for my classes. I decided on a Macbook Pro (15", 2.4ghz penryn) because I need something that is portable enough to carry around every day, but powerful enough to be a primary computer when I am away from home. This will be my first Mac and I am very excited about using OS-X. And my questions/concerns: I have been doing a lot of research lately and have come across many troubling issues that people are having with the Macbook Pro's. The ones that are the most widespread are the LED backlighting issues, the yellowish screens, and the omission of letters due to faulty keyboards. Should I be wary of purchasing a Macbook Pro? I have not followed Apple's notebooks until just recently, but are these issues common with Apple and easily remedied? How easy is it to have a notebook exchanged for a new one in-store if I am having one of these problems? I know that there are no definitive answers to these questions, but any insight would be much appreciated. I need a little more confidence in Apple before investing $2000 into a product that could be nothing but trouble.
