    Is the new Uni Body MBP to big? Are you guys all happy with the size of it? What did you have before the new MBP?

    I personally feel that the new unibody is too big, it feels like I am carrying around a 17" MBP. Prior to the unibody MBP, I had the 2.16 C2D... great computer, but a little too wide for me. Although, its only wider by an inch or so, but it makes a difference. I also don't like how sharp the edges feel when you're typing.

    I've had mine for about 10 days, and I'm perfectly happy with the size.

    If anything, I should be the one complaining. I went from a 12.1" ultra-portable to this 15.4" widescreen desktop replacement (don't worry, I had good reasons to switch).

    Anyway, the MBP looks razor thin and is still the lightest notebook in its class. Personally, I appreciate the extra screen real estate because it allows me to comfortably view various open windows/programs. If you can justify the need for (1) the power, and (2) the screen size, then you won't be disappointed. Like any computer, it will take a little getting used to, but you'll be fine.

    Oh, and concerning the sharp edges, I don't find them to be bothersome at all. I was a little worried about them myself, but if your chair is at the appropriate height, it's a non-issue.

    My defective HD on the other hand...

    Oh God no. I've been toting around a 17" Toshiba Satellite for the last two years and it feels like I dropped twenty pounds switching to this laptop!

    I love the size, feel, and shape of the Macbook Pro. The screen is way bigger than I expected coming off a 17". It's super thin, light, and really portable for me. I fly every so often for work and lugging around a heavy laptop bag, suitcases, and my instruments is tough so the more help I can get, the better.

    Long story short, I'm happy. :)
