I went in to my local Apple Store at Lunch to check out the new MacBook Pro's, I must say I was more impressed with it after playing with it for a few minutes than I was based on everything I had read in advance. That being said I am torn between a new MBP and the updated 17" MBP so I asked the associate at the store if the Nvidia 8600M GT issue had been fixed for the updated 17" models. At first looked at me like I had 3 eyes and and claimed that never heard of any issues with MBP video cards then he checked to see exactly what GPU was in the 17" (duh), then checked to see if it could be configured with a different GPU (double duh), he was a nice guy but no help at all, or has Apple had told their people to "play dumb" I don't know. He did say however that the updated 17" MPB's were all brand new machines that had just arrived Monday and that all the other 17's were shipped back to Apple. So I'm wondering, would Apple knowingly put a faulty GPU in a "new/updated" computer? I'm torn between the new 15" MBP and the Updated 17", I like the new design and features of the 15" but can/do use the variety of Ports availabe & like the Hi-Res screen that the 17" offers but am a little spooked about the issues with the 8600 (Money is not a factor in the decision) I mostly use my current MBP for Final Cut Express 4, Photoshop Elements 6 & MS Office, Windows XP via Parallels and maybe a little low end to mid-range gaming. What would you do/buy?
