    Yes, you could... but you&#39;d need a female DVI to female DVI adaptor as well, &#39;cause you&#39;d be trying to connect two male DVI connectors together.

    Firstly, that&#39;s way OT. Secondly - the whole switching windows thing was actually a windows thing first I think. OSX copied windows for Command-Tab (correct me if I&#39;m wrong).

    Don&#39;t be a fanboy. It makes all mac users look like fanatics. Yeah windows shits me in 101 different ways, but that doesn&#39;t mean that I shouldn&#39;t be reasonable.

    Come in and say hi, guys. We are opposite Federation Square, next to St Pauls Cathedral, and 2.36 seconds walk from Flinders St station.

    I dropped in for 5 mins an hour ago... I didn&#39;t know your real name so I just had a quick look at the MB then left. I&#39;m shy.

    I love everything about the MB except the screen. Seeing it in real life confirmed that the glare is an issue for those of us who think it might be an issue.

    Maglatch is hot though, and the overall machine is a killer. I&#39;ve already recommended it to my brother (or one of iSlayer&#39;s second hand iMacs).

    That worries me too, though bear in mind that shops often have large windows with light streaming in from the street AND a lot of overhead fluorescent lighting. It&#39;s probably the worst lighting environment.

    Using it at home would be much different.

    And I figure I&#39;ve managed just fine with both my iPod and PSP screens, both of which are glossy...

    I think I&#39;ll just grab one of those anti-glare screens to cover it with. Hopefully that will work.

    gringo those "fancy &#39;antiglare&#39; sunglasses" have polarized lens LCD&#39;s put out polarized light, so every-time you tilt you head the brightness of the screen will change not counting the fact that the tint of the glasses themselves will make the screen darker.

    I&#39;m just going to redirect an asteroid so that it hits the earth, causing a massive dust storm that will block the sun&#39;s light. Then, and only then, will I be able to enjoy glare-free computing.

    My name is yours, I suspect. Mark. :P I am kinda flattered that a real life widget maestro was in my store...

    We now have a white and a black, and I love the black and would actually fork out the extra &#036;210 for it. That sounds stupid, even to me, but it looks gorgeous, and hass to be seen.

    Kinda like the black of the pismo/lomard powerbooks of olde times, with a similar striking white glowing apple on black look.

    Question: Is it a DL SuperDrive? On Apple Tech Specs it is misleading. It says "Slot-loading SuperDrive with double-layer read support (DVD+R DL/DVDRW/CD-RW)" What tha??

    It says read support and then they specify DVD+R DL. Anyone confirm that it is a DL SuperDrive.

    Thanks

    Very misleading ... the tech specs for the 1.83 MBP said the same thing. Not reading carefully enough, I thought I was getting a DL writing drive.

    However, when my MBP *finally* arrived, iDVD, Disk Utility, System Profiler etc. did not seem to allow DL writing.

    Very misleading, as I&#39;ve NEVER had a DVD drive that couldn&#39;t read dual-layer discs&#33;

    So I&#39;m pretty sure the MacBook will not burn 2 layers.

    PS: Although my SuperDrive worked fine reading DVDs, after I had installed all my software and SW updates and transferred my home directory, I found that the drive wouldn&#39;t read over half of my audio CDs&#33; (some were brand new, they *all* worked on my 12" PB). So after some haggling, Apple is replacing it with a new 2GHz model.

    I agree it was misleading to include DL in there, but I have had an older DVD drive that didn&#39;t seem to read self-burnt Dual Layer discs.

    I found that out when I burnt a backup of the iLife 06 install discs (I like to keep the originals not used too much in case they fail a few years later).

    The old drive wold read the original, but not my DVD+R DL disc (maybe because it was +). A newer drive read it fine.
