hey everyone. Just wanted to give a quick update on my mbp that I got from microcenter in nj. everything is working beautifully. I just switched to the hitachi 7200 500gb hd and i love it. Its pretty quick. Also got my moshi palmguard, key protector and a xgear carbon leather case (not bad case. fits well except for the new connector,the case blocks it so i just flip it around...looks nice, has nice matte feel to it. only thing i don't like is how the fabric moves around when you grab it or rub it too hard, but for overall protection its pretty sturdy imo. I just don't like the specs and incase plastic feel/look, so i'm pretty happy with the case for now) I don't notice any more vibration or heat with the new hitachi drive(39C during regular use). I literally can't feel any extra vib at all during use...its awesome. As for battery I'm not sure yet but its saying 9 hours at 93% charge while im typing this, but not really doing much on the computer. I have noticed that VLC player makes the mbp run much hotter (75-80C) whereas quicktime is cooler (65-70C). Anyone else notice that? Hope everyone is loving their mbp as much as I am. Thanks.
