So after having issues with my 13in refurb I returned it for a 15in 2.2 i7 MBP. I put in the 8GB that I had set aside for the 13in, and the SSD with an Optibay, and while it has only been 3 days this laptop is great. it idles at about 36* while I'm woking in email and my works ticket system, and on Adium, gets good battery life, not great, I'd estimate about 8hrs. That more then I need though so I'm happy. I havent tried Starcraft II yet, but if that runs as smooth as I hope then I think I found the perfect laptop for me. it only took a year for hunting/waiting.
