In case anyone is interested, I took a few pics of the new 17"MBP. My gosh it's the most beautiful and surprisingly lightweight machine I've seen. It's incredibly fast. This model was configured with the 2.93Ghz processor and 256GB SSD. It was so fast it launched iTunes 1 second with many apps currently running. It was a bit warm but that's understandable with so many apps running. There were no models with the anti-glare on the show floor. The screen bezel is much thinner than the 15".
