    seeing as there are quite a few separate threads on the mid 09 macbook pro (one on 13", another one on the 17" model), let's keep all our thoughts, experiences, questions, etc. in this single thread.

    so, starting the first post.

    let's start with a roll call on all the owners, post your philmug name, and the 09 macbook pro you own and feedback or experiences you might have so far.

    Nice pics of your MBP! Looks like she had quite a shoot. Gotta love the amazing display of our MBP's. The colors just come alive...

    About the Ram, I guess I'll go for 4GB unless I can convince myself that I really "need" the 8GB of memory. ;)

    I'm into a little bit of photography myself and I know I'll be needing all the RAM I can get. So if could, I'll probably max it out...
