Nice! Can you post some comparison shots? Maybe next to another MacBook? What safari and itunes look like max window size.
Charger is different:
Could you install the iStat Pro dashboard widget and post some temperatures? I'm really curious how warm it idles at.
Thanks for sharing. Just one question. How is the heat when running the CPU in full throttle and during light use like web browsing?
Threads like this keep me going as I wait for mine to ship.
Did you own a previous gen? If so how do you feel the screen compares? Is it as bright? Are the colors as good?
could you please check for any backlight unevenness? I have 2 areas which are more lit up than other parts of the screen on my 17" i7 MBP.. I might exchange it for a 15" i7..
The charger looks amazing ! Does it still have a green / orange LED ?
EDIT : I reckon they modified it to prevent natural bending moment due to gravity on the edge of the plug that causes problems like this :
So happy to see this !
Lucky you. My local shop have no hi res option, otherwise I might consider one as well.
The charge connector does have green/yellow light.
Yes, it has the LEDs its just like the one on the MacBook and the Air(I think don't hold it to me).
Is the charger physically compatible? Everyone says they have the same power ratings. I know the plug is arranged differently on the cable, but is the actual plug-in end of the plug compatible with the old ones? (I have two extra MBP power supplies that need to know...)
I picked one up as well. I love it!
It's the same thing; I can also charge the MacBook Air now with the same adapter.
Cool! Congrats. Got one myself at the Freehold store. I'm glad I got the hi-res anti-glare i7.
You guys with the 15" i7s...are they too warm to use on your lap with light usage?
I'm restoring from time capsule and the bottom of the i7 is very hot. Don't think I would want to put it on my lap.
41ºC right now, fans at default.
I'm assuming that's CPU temp -- how about bottom enclosure temps? mid 70s?
What can you tell of screen quality: viewing angles etc?
Is it worth it?
How many of you find it really that useful to get the anti-glare? I mean, it is 200 extra.
I think a whole bunch of us are seeing that very issue. I already had one of my power bricks replaced because of this, and I think I'm getting ready to replace another one.
I tried both side by side today at the Apple store. For me, it's antiglare or nothing - I hate glossy because it's so highly reflective. I was worried about type being too tiny with the increased resolution on the antiglare model, but it's manageable. And that matte screen is beautiful. So you should go to the store and play around with the glossy, then see if you can live with it.
For me, it's a quality of life issue.
That's the same one that came with my late 09 MB.They must be changing them now.I also have a secondary powercable like the old ones that goes with me everywhere.
