Yesterday I received my new macbook pro.

I bought it with the 2.4Ghz processor and basic ram (2GB) and the basic HD (250GB)

I have also got through the post today an upgrade HD of 500GB and a ram upgrade to 4GB.

I am officially a convert. I love my MBP. :eek:

2 years ago I swore I wouldn't go mac. But I love it now. :sirs:

Geek tastic.

I loved mine when I first got it too. :)

But once the novelty wore off, I'm left disappointed that:
- it's got rubbish built-in wireless (like they all do)
- the battery has died already (like they all do).
- the screen is starting to bend away from the centre catch when it's closed (like they all do)

I still like the look of it, and it's not entirely rubbish, but I'm not really getting the "reassuringly expensive" Apple ownership experience I read so much about. It's been styled rather than designed, and that's a shame.

Which model is yours? If the screen is bending away then surely you could have had it repaired under your apple care warranty?

If it's anything like my iPhone that I'm trying to set up for my own email account access, then it's horrendously frustrating and slow. NO manual settings to edit (even though I know them all), it tries to guess them for you, which is taking AGES.

Everything it does however, it does perfectly. It's what it doesn't do that is the problem. :rant:

Have you tried setting a proxy for Safari?

You have to set it in the network setting. Easy peasy.

But if then you don't want to use proxy all the time, when you switch it off
it deletes the setting. PoS!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

It's a 15" MacBook Pro, core 2 duo 2.16GHz.

The screen bend is a known problem ( and please don't say "it can't be, I've never heard about it" :) ) that can affect all the MBPs of this era, and people have tried to get them repaired only for Apple to say that the amount of bend is 'within specification'.

Because the applications, UI and the actual OS are not intertwined so
when something s**ts the bed it does bring the whole house of
cards down with it.
