    I will be purchasing the new Core i5 15" MBP in a few weeks and have been reading a lot of good things about it. With all the good things I see a few bad. I was wondering if anyone with the new MBP could answer these questions?

    1. Is the Display better than the last generations? ( In particular the high res)
    2. Someone said in another post boot time is slower than the 2009 C2D MBP? Can a few people confirm this?

    I have read a few people say the new screens are less brighter than previous models and this has me very concerned? Of course I hope they actually turned up the brightness setting before making such claims. I greatly appreciate anyone's input. Thanks again.

    Boot up on my 2.4 from the start-up bong to the log-in screen is 25 sec. I have a stock machine so can't comment on the quality of the hi-rez version.

    25 seconds is great. Takes about a minute to boot up from power on a Windows machine. I look so forward to getting my first mac. Is the screen really bright at highest settings? Thanks
