    I tried this earlier but little response. What week build is the most current and what is the quality assessment of these recent builds??

    Did the 17" MBP receive a revised mlb as did the 15"? Other observations on build quality / heat / cpu whine / weak display hinge / noisy fans / etc.?

    Thanks

    I dunno specifically but I know the 17's have had less issues than the 15's mainly due to theres more room on the inside for all the stuff.

    Main logic board? Mother logic board? I believe logic board at any rate is what is meant.

    I currently have a Week 34 Build and it's running pretty well (a little less cooler and better battery life). I don't think the 17" MBP had as bad a build as the 15" ones.

    Perhaps less people own them so less people complained.
