Wife and I were in Montreal last week so popped over to this. It's very well done and there are quite a lot of models and props from the movies. The exhibition explores the idea that although Anakin and Luke were raised in similar environments they became very different people. You get to create your own character as you go along based around each of the sections as they are explained. There were even some original Ralph McQuarrie (RIP) paintings to view. Some photos (we take Toad with us for photos on our jollies):

I keep hearing this from friends. I recently bought a MBP refurb and I love it. As a grown up who's free time is becoming more and more of a special treat, I don't want to tinker and fix just to get things working. Since moving to Apple, I've had to do ZERO hacking to sort things out. I use the machine to DJ, produce music, browse, play games (on Steam). It's all been plug and play (usually hotplugged). Seriously, anyone! Link me to a 13-15 inch notebook PC with comparable specs (in and out) to the Macbook range. Including a beautiful multi-touch trackpad. I would have been more than happy to buy it but no one has managed to find any for me.

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
