    I realize there is no woofer, but do the speakers have a reasonably full sound?

    Aloha MontrealMonger,

    While they are still laptop speakers, the new MBP has a much better set than in my previous 2.16GHz Core 2 Cuo (bought in October 2006). There's not a lot of bass, but watching online videos is quite good.

    The new 15" mbp's speakers are crazy louder and clearer than the previous gen!

    I really do feel like they took the 17" mbps speaker and put them in the new 15".

    I have the late 2008 15" MBP and it seems like there are 3 drivers..
    There seems to be a driver for the lower sounds coming from the keyboard area slightly to the right...
    I thought my speakers were initially unbalance as I heard the right side louder than the left side but then I hear deeper sound emanating from the keyboard area when i put on the heavy bass music..
    In fact if you see the teardown here:

    You see there is a subwoofer there... they even mention it.
