    Hey all.

    I've been reading a lot about issues of sleepless nights, clicking nightmares (when it doesn't register your click), etc. But it seems to me that I haven't had any such issues with my unibody unit yet?:confused:

    Anyways. If you're one of the lucky ones (like me) please chime in, and tell the world that yours is actually fine. And I mean really that you have no such issues. No sleep issue, no clicking issues. Nada. No other issues whatsoever. (And I mean like it works exactly like it was supposed to. Please don't start a keyboard debacle here. Nor a glossy vs matte one):D

    :apple:

    Mine's perfect. No issues with glare and I prefer the keyboard.

    like most, i've been tracking the new unibodies since launch. noted the issues raised but made the plunge with an online order (CTO) on night of 17/11. pick up from freighter morning of 22/11 (to save 2 days of warehouse sitting).

    no dead pixels, battery cover is rock solid, no alu blemishes, no sleep issues, keys normals, express/34 slot ok, wifi normal, touchpad ok after firmware upgrade....

    all in all, prefect.

    I can't be. By virtue of there only being 6billion+ people in the world, and a significantly smaller number having unibody MBPs, then we don't have enough data for a trillion-based sample.:D

    Mine's been absolutely flawless and I've had it for about a month. Although I am switching from a Dell Inspiron so my standards have been bastardized.

    Apart from what appears to be a slight aberration on the touchpad, everything looks good.

    Apart from the initial issues with the trackpad, which were fixed with the firmware update (and even before were a non-issue to me, my clicks aren't mission critical...), mine is perfect, none of the mentioned defects, no slanted keys, no weird dents or nicks, no bulges, no black blots in my ports (still trying to figure this one out...?), ... I feel like I'm forgetting something... oh, and normal keyboard wear, normal battery latch, no dead pixels, sleep works normally, no issues with wifi reception, express/34 slot is normal, etc...

    Did I mention I take this to and from school twice a day and all over my house and to friends places for LAN parties and such? All I have is a semi-ill-fitting sleeve for it that was meant for the last-gen MBP's that I shove in my Dakine Heli Pro backpack. Got my eye on a Vyper M3 though.

    So yeah, I have a base model too, which I'll be upgrading to 4GB and 320GB 7200RPM for my birthday (dec 9th)/christmas.

    I've got a bit of a jumping cursor issue when hooked up to an external montior, mouse and keyboard. But otherwise, perfect.

    It seems all unibody MBPs have this problem, so it's something that has to be taken as given. Hopefully Apple will fix the bug, and the machines will truly be "perfect".

    eeekk.spilt coffee on MBP SR last week, in the middle of claiming from the household insurance. Was going to get it repaired- most keys don't work, trackpad becoming funky, DVD finebrushes are 'not', backlit keys don't or get a new MBP. Are the issues that bad? I know stupid question, or more like a lazy question.

    Mine was perfect until I removed the battery cover to see what was underneath. After putting it back on, the cover became loose - which was easily fixed using the methods posted on this forum.

    Perf!

    Mine's perf, too. In fact you could say it's too perfect. Maybe I should exchange it. I'm sick of everyone complaining but me; and I do so enjoy a good whinge.
