MacBook Pro Display Tilt

I just love my new MacBook Pro but after a week of playing I noticed that I cannot open my display nearly as far as I could on my old 12-inch PowerBook. My clients with 15 and 17-inch PowerBook G4s can open the display clamshell much further back than I can with my MBP.
I wish the MBP would have been designed to allow users to open the lid to almost flat. It’s a shame with the new brightness of the display sitting on my lap it is very hard to tilt the display at an adequate vantage point to look at it squarely – not to mention brining yourself into proper alignment of the built-in iSight. My audience will have to examine how well I tie a double windsor – or knot ;)
