Too many irritations considering this thing cost me 2600 bucks. I bought this to replace an aging 4 year old Thinkpad T60. I love the form factor, I love the screen, I mostly love the keyboard Hard drive vibrates like crazy and hums and makes this weird click if you move the machine around at all. I've never seen a laptop vibrate from the hd like the dvd player was going full speed. Edit: the clicking is probably the sudden motion sensor parking the heads. My thinkpad has something similar but it doesn't sound the same. The vibration is still unexplained. The fans at the lowest speed 2000 rpm are louder than the core2duo thinkpad's fans on full blast Video playback is glitchy if you try to do anything else. for instance if I have a youtube video playing in one safari window and then open a new one the video glitches pretty badly. My weak old thinkpad never does that. I could have 5 videos playing and it would still be smooth. Yes, I have whatever latest updates, and yes, this is with it plugged into AC. It doesn't always go to sleep promptly if I close the lid. Sucks to wait around for a couple of minutes to snooze so I don't cook it when I put it in my bag. This isn't really the fault of the hardware, but whatever version of macos on this thing is primitive compared to Windows 7. 7 is just so smooth and fluid and almost reads your mind. (which is amazing, considering Vista was such a POS) macos is just... clunky. Yeah, I could install 7, but I'm not going to shell out $200 to Mister Softee after giving 2.6k to the Steve Jobs Future Philanthropy Fund. The speakers sound tinny compared to the thinkpad. Not sure how this is possible since the mac's speakers look twice as big. Then again thinkpads have always had excellent speakers. Just not very loud. Headphone jack - The lowest volume setting is almost too loud. The 2nd lowest is definitely too loud. Middle volume would probably blow out the headphones. Why? These are good headphones, too - not some junk. One good thing - the issue I had with the trackpad being uneven resolved itself. After some number of clicks, the depressed side leveled out. So yeah - this is a lot of fairly petty stuff. Any of them alone (or even a couple) would not have been a deal breaker. But all together considering what this thing cost is not acceptable to me. I think I'll just keep using my old stinkpad for now, and wait for the new macos to come out and for SSDs to drop more in price and then maybe I'll buy another macbook pro. Kinda sad to see it go. It is very purdy. Am I being dumb?
