Hey. I have never owned a Mac, but I'm in the market for a notebook and the new MBPs are really appealing. I've done a lot of research on the web, and even got some hands-on action at a local Apple store today. Yet, I still have some questions. Forgive me if these are obvious, but any answers (especially ones with references) would really be appreciated! 1. The wireless chipset in the new SR MBPs: is it manufactured to be "draft 2.0" of the 802.11n standard? I can't find out if it's draft 1 or draft 2. 2. Is this "Airport Extreme" chipset something custom by Apple, an Intel chipset, or a third-party chipset? I ask because I am concerned about dual-booting Linux, and having native Linux drivers (in a recent Fedora or Ubuntu distribution, for example). 3. When I was testing the MBPs in-store today, I opened up 3 hi-res videos in quicktime, and a demo video in Final Cut Pro, and had all four looping (to get 100% load on both cores). I also had an "istat" widget running to monitor the CPU and GPU temps. The MBP was on a flat desk, the store at normal room temp. The CPU temp ran between 82-90 degrees Celsius under load, averaging 84 or so. This seems really high. The rear underside of the MBP was also extremely hot to the touch -- it would not have been something to sit on your lap (say... in an airplane). The GPU temp was in the high 60s or 70s (probably ok). Are these CPU temps normal for MBPs? The new Lenovo T61 notebooks are supposed to run really cool compared to this. 4. I prefer the matte screen, but I am concerned about using it outdoors. Does anyone with the new LED backlit matte screen have firsthand comments about using it outdoors? Is it still easy to read? I will want to use the MBP outside sometimes. 5. Does anyone here have firsthand experience getting any Linux installation to dual-boot on the SR MBPs? Any specific driver problems? 6. If I buy the MBP through the Apple Developer Connection store, can I still bring it in to a local Apple store for exchanges/repairs? 7. A question about Parallels: I saw version 2 of Parallels made it up to 2.5. Were the 2.1, 2.2, etc releases free upgrades if you purchased 2.0? I am hesitant to buy version 3.0, when you can pretty much guess that 3.1 is coming before year's end. I mean, I want virtualization, but I can get by with boot camp for a while. Thank you for all answers! I'm new to Apple stuff and trying to figure out if it's right for me. Gotta do my homework before I buy.
