    1. Great to know. Thanks.

    2. hmm... not sure I can do that. I wish i had good eyes.

    I know you are still working on your review, but are you enjoying the computer?

    ^ I actually enjoy doing these evaluations, so yes, I like the computer too :)

    I'm going to take the thing apart tomorrow. That is if my "Honey-do" list doesn't get too much longer.

    Done, I'd be interested in somebody's opinion on the control panel/ATA connection, or lack there of.

    Fantastic job with the thorough discussion of this computer. Obviously this is not an important metric, but I'm curious what the Windows Experience Index shows.

    Great job this is what I was waiting for some body who really cares about every aspect of this laptop and not just OSX side ;)

    Can you run some games to see how they perform at full res and half ?

    same here. It is totally useless, but oh well.

    I was about to buy mine tonight, but 4-week wait means that it will come during my trip to PA.

    it appears that the demand was great, this deadline appeared 2 days latter of the launch.

    you can be lucky enough to get one from BB or some apple store, but it means either base model or the ultimate model

    Yes, not the best metric, but a metric none the less. I'll post shortly.

    I'll do some Arkham City res tests, but I don't overclock laptops as a policy. It isn't practical for my usage. Now my workstation, that's another matter altogether.
