    Now that these have been out for a few days, just wanted to see what some of the pros on cons are for the MBP. Will be picking one up soon.

    Its odd to me that will all that power most models still come with a 5400 rpm hard drive. Once you go SSD you can't go back. If i were to buy one I would buy an SSD for a boot drive and optibay the included hard drive for more storage. 8GB of ram max is kind of silly for all this power too.

    Never thought of going SSD. What's the score for you with SSD?

    + Thunderbolt
    + Sandy Bridge
    + Bigger HDD

    - Loss in GPU power except for the higher end 15" MBP and 17" MBP.
