    as the title sez...

    brand new unboxing... just today...

    did the welcome setup... n beyond that... instantly updated the smc update...

    standard apple stuff... pls connect wire... (or ensure >25% batt) ... figure it was brand new with >70% (and i've done updates without the power b4), i just clicked ok... it went onto a white screen with the mouse still movable... but that's about it...

    now... white screen... mouse movable... longer than 30 mins and counting... i wouldn't wanna cold/force shut it down do i =(...

    should i wait longer???... must i force shut down?


    it didn't even had it's 1st normal shut down/start up yet ='( ... how sad is that....

    finally decided to force-shutdown it.... drats... restarted the machine n it instantly started the smc installation though...


    so far so good... installation went fine... no other updates from apple...

    ~ installed BTT (to be customized when needed... but not using atm)

    ~ gfxstatus... integrated had obvious stuttering... discrete was smoother but not butter smooth...) ... *update,* after using awhile... the integrated performing better... not smooth, but better than when it 1st started...

    ~ dead pixel/backlight bleed / music test / + 1st appearance on the cosmetics seems all A-OK!

    getting familiar with ML ( previous MB 2008~9 i think, it's C2D gfx 9800m... with SL)

    ~ black magic hdd test results are as expected...


    ~ m i missing anything????

    thx... updated title...

    fan control, any recommendations? though, not incline to use any yet... my temps are hold well, n so far mostly in an air-con room... no intensive apps/progs yet... will be installing win7-bootcamp soon ... getting my stuff together...

    from istatpro = (gfxstatus on integrated only atm)
    cpu heatsink currently @ 42c
    gpu @ 44c

    if not mistaken, b4 i installed gfxstatus, cpu was at 50~ish and gpu was... i forgot... 55c?


    ~ btw, sound quality.... awesomeness!
    ~ did the terminal code test... get and LG screen.... no probs with it so far though =)
