Excellent trackpad, solid enclosure, stupid Mini Display Port,
This review is from: MacBook Pro 15" 2.4GHz/2GB/250GB/GeForce 9600M GT/SuperDrive (Electronics)Trackpad is fantastic. Large, smooth, supports multi-touch gestures like iPhone. Since entire trackpad is a button, it's now possible to easily perform right click'n'drag, which is needed for more traditional mouse gestures (e.g. in Opera browser or xGestures).
Unibody enclosure is beautiful, almost seamless and very solid. LEDs, buttons and speaker grille are made with laser precision. There are no visible vents, and only 4 tiny screws underneath the laptop!
Graphics card is quite powerful. Modern Windows games work well in full resolution on high details.
Screen is bright. There is little glare, and glossiness isn't a problem. It has good horizontal viewing angle, but vertical angle leaves something to be desired.
External monitor can be connected only via Mini Display Port, which requires additional, unique adapter. Initially there were no 3rd party adapters. Now there are, and you can connect monitors/projectors via HDMI (with special 2-cable adapter if you want sound) and regular DisplayPort. Dual-DVI adapter is still awful.
It's very easy to upgrade harddrive in this model, but for DYI RAM upgrade you'll need a screwdriver.
