You're being way too picky. It's new with no problems. Just enjoy it.
the 2.53ghz mbp was the model that came out in late 2008 and then they updated it to 2.66ghz a few months later and that is the one you are talking about with the "fresher parts". I bought my 2.4ghz mbp when it first came out end of last year and have had no problems with the graphics card at all. If you just bought it though I think you should have gotten the 2.66ghz. Check apples website to be sure though.
so the only difference between the late 2008 and the 09 is the 2.66ghz?
yeah pretty sure, but if your paying full price i would return it
You should for sure return it.
1. the newer model is compatible with up to 8 gigs of DDR3 ram. This might not make a difference right now, but in 2 years when you are looking to upgrade this will make a huge difference.
2. iLife '09 includes updated software like iPhoto with facial recognition
3. You bought a new laptop they should give you a new laptop
That's weird. If you purchased a Apple product today, it should've been the "refreshed" models and not the original late-2008 model. Everything you got in-box is correct except for the processor. I would definitely go back and get the latest model, not the original.
So four minutes, one percent... 400 minutes, 100%... six hours and forty minutes to run the battery down. Do you think this is bad?
You bought a new MacBook Pro within the previous 2 weeks? If this is the case, you should have gotten the 2.66 GHz model, since that's the current model going out. The 2.53 GHz were when the new unibody design was just introduced.
So, in that sense, you should go back and ask for an exchange, unless otherwise they explicitly stated to you they were giving you an 2.53 GHz model and you accepted and now don't recall.
You were given an out of date Mac. Unless it was priced accordingly, then it should be exchanged for the 2.66ghz model.
Just take it back and get the new one. If you purchased it new recently, it should be the 2.66 model with the better internals, end of story.
