Decided to splurge on myself with an upgrade that has more to do with cool than performance. Linky.

Just ordered it from the Apple Store (same $ but free shipping, and not available on Amazon). The only downside is no USB ports, but I have three on the back of the Thunderbolt display, and I don't use them very often anyway. Aesthetically, it's a perfect match because everything on my desk surface is either black or brushed aluminum.

Will post a pic or two when it comes.
