It's been sad to see that most of the back and forth postings on this site revolve around gaming capabilities between the 2010 and 2011 MBP lineup. With all of that said, there has been little mention of the other included "goodies" if you will that Apple quietly introduced. SDXC support: The new 2011 MBP's include the SDXC card slot (an improvement over the 2009/2010 SDHC) - allowing it to utilize the larger capacity cards while still being backwards compatible. Improved wireless networking: The wireless card is improved in the 2011 lineup, with a Broadcom BCM4331 that includes four antenaes vs three in the previous offering. The card itself is said to support 3x spatial streaming, on both the 2.4 and 5.0 ghz bands. This will allow for faster connections and broader wireless coverage (your mileage may vary). The SATA III and HD camera inclusions are also getting less notice VS the hundreds of threads comparing processor benchmarks, but I'm surprised that those looking to use the MBP for photography or have complained of wireless coverage in the past are not noticing two of the more meaningful upgrades to them.
