    I'm getting the baseline 15" MBP tomorrow and I noticed they switched back to having separate Audio In, Audio Out jacks as opposed to them being combined on the 2010 version.

    Will I be able to use my iPhone headphone's mic during facetime/ichat video calls or will I have to use the one built into the MBP? Thanks!

    I have tried using my iPhone's headset/microphone during a skype video call and only the audio works.

    It's always been like that, the audio in is a line input, not microphone input, the headphone jack is still supposed to support microphone from iphone headset, as per http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs.html

    That's exactly what I wanted to know. I must have overlooked it. Thanks for the quick reply!

    It works just as you would expect. The controls for volume, play/pause, next/previous work also.
