    So, just got my new rmbp and wondered whether anybody knows about any tests etc to check that it all works properly?

    As in the ssd speed, the processor etc

    The main reason I ask, is that I've seen the rainbow a few times already and I'm thinking that I shouldn't based on the machine being more than twice as powerful as my white book based on geek bench

    Any ideas of tests/benchmarks are appreciated
    Cheers

    Not sure of the tests. But the spotlight indexing that runs when you first get the computer has caused many a folk to be worried about their machine. The only test I know for sure would be the image retention ones. You can search these forums for it.

    Enjoy!!

    People use Black Magic for testing SSD speeds.

    There is a built in Apple Hardware Test you could run.

    If the AHT finds anything wrong it will show an error along with a error code. Normally you can just Google that error code and figure out what it going on. A new machine should not show any errors though.
