How is the "bleed-thru" around the keys problematic for you? I just think it's pretty.
It always irked me because the brightness tended to be uneven.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Uneven across the keyboard, or uneven in response to ambient light? My first gen MBP's keyboard is still quite even left-to-right and top-to-bottom, but it has never tracked ambient light very smoothly, which I can deal with.

Just picked up a 17" MacBook Pro, I love it. 2.5i7/8GB/512

Amazing machine, my first 17". I thought it was going to be way too big, but it's the perfect size. Resolution is amazing and makes anything else look out of date, I mean: 1920x1200 on a 17" is nicely dense enough for me, still in love with 16:10. Have a hard time using 16:9, so this is better for me than the Airs. The thunderbolt is too cool! I use my Dad's dual 27"ers with a Promise RAID. It's driving my 30" right now through the MiniDP to Dual-Link DVI box, the 5870 in my MacPro's fan died and I'm sure there are many blown caps. Get to lug it to the Apple store!


A little Kismet action going on at school.

I miss the days of the G5 and XPS Pentium 4 running side by side as high-end machines.

Very nice! How do you like the sound on those Swans? They include the sub also, correct?

I'm not surprised. The forums seems to have slowed down quite a bit.

More evidence of our "post-PC world"?

Also Apple's laptops have looked essentially the same since the Clinton administration, so maybe it's not so fun to take new pictures of them anymore.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

True. I've always been more interested in the desktop layout around it, and how people organize their workstations. This is often more difficult with a notebook since all the cables at some point need to hit your desk. The lack of an Apple produced docking station doesn't help.
