    Battery is fixed. Scrolling in Safari became awesome, and absolutely no crashes, no problems at all. Will upload a video when I get back from school :)

    Good for you... Mine got worse [ SMC reset didn't help either ]... starts with 7:40 hrs on a full charge, then drops to around 5 in 5 minutes and, significantly to under 4 with 95% remaining in 15 minutes... :mad:

    Two of our sales staff had pretty bad battery life. Today we did the upgrade, in just three hours they could tell how much this rev improved battery life. Scrolling is completely solved.

    Well I posted something really stupid. Then I realized this, but now i'm forced with thinking of something to post, as I can't delete the post.

    facebook was very very choppy for me and basically everyone else. As of the new update is nice and smooth, finally.

    Well, there were no updates to Safari or to any of the GPU graphics kernel extensions (check the .PKG with Pacifist), so there couldn't have been any direct drawing enhancements. Perhaps some underlying power management bug causing excessive Window server throttling was fixed?

    Hmm, my battery is reporting it lasts a little longer. Not a whole lot mind you (it's reporting 5.5 hours at 100%), but it's better than before (I think it said something like 4.25 hours before)

    Edit: just jumped to 6.3 hours..

    And since you are such a good software engineer and have years of experience programing OS @ Apple you just know how the software components play together an can thus say that there is no improvement possible. :rolleyes:

    UI-Lag seems to have been fixed nearly completely. I have yet to try scrolling one Facebook.

    Love the update on RMBP...

    Interesting going back and forth between the RMBP and 17" 2010 MBP; I love them both, however, 17" has become mostly a desktop... both are solid machines!

    hate to sound like a twat but if you can help it (i.e. your comp didn't ship with 10.8) then always wait til around the x.x.2 mark before updating mac OS. They're brilliant OSes but usually take a while to sort out the bugs

    everything works great for me.. except this stupid audio skip issue in mountain lion. I get skips in my audio in iTunes, vlc player, youtube, etc. It just happens randomly. Def a software issue as I don't have this at all in bootcamp. They better fix this!!!! >:[

    I really appreciate the screen clarity, and the speediness...

    Awesome!

    It sounds like, for most, there are improvements.

    I'll be taking my MBP out into the field next week, with my newly installed 10.8.1... Am looking forward to it because the new version of the OS is slick, and as a practical user, the OS is why I've kept with Apple. Bling is for babies, but that's another topic...
