Hrm, so now that it's over, I'm rather unimpressed. Wasn't a fan of the iMac two-tone nature, but it grew on me. This just looks odd. And no option for matte screen is the dealbreaker for me.

+1 Not a lot of new features, no 17 inch display, and no matte screen. Not impressed at all.

I'm pretty damn disappointed that the new nehalem intel chip wasn't in these and agree that its stupid that they don't make the screens matte like they used to...also liked the older macbook pro keyboards

Call me a tough critic but I was somewhat dissapointed..

Agreed. Not entirely impressed with the release. The two toned notebooks have not set in on me!

Needless to say I am happy with my 17 MBP who really needs more than 512mb on a NOTEBOOK GPU? If you need more than that, you should have a desktop IMO

both weak improvements, they could have released these macbooks without a media event.
