I haven't seen many reviews of the new MBPs, and as a veteran lurker (er, survivor) of the Waiting for Arrandale thread, I was hoping to see something. Just the Engaget review so far, so I started writing my own mini-review. You can see it here at my development blog: http://weblog.wanderingmango.com I did a couple of informal benchmarks using the laptops I had at hand, just to see how much faster the i5 was. And in these informal tests it was ... much faster. No surprise there I guess, since I'm pitting it against older laptops. But it was interesting to see.
