    Thanks for the info! Question for you, have you noticed your new 15" run abnormally warm or hot at all? I ask because I have seen posts by other users here with that problem. Hopefully it is an isolated incident because I am getting the same model you have in the video shipped to me!

    You are welcome! Honestly I haven't spent a whole lot of time with it yet other than what you see in the video, and I also edited and encoded the video in iMovie afterward. I did not notice any overheating. Hopefully yours will be problem-free. Enjoy it!

    It's amazing how snappier the new one seems. I guess that 1333 MHz memory makes a big difference paired with the SB processor. I'm upgrading from an early 2009 model, so I expect to see an even larger speed difference between my old one and new one.

    A nice, non-technical tour of real world comparisons. Easy viewing.

    Nice video, thanks for putting that together. It was very informative.
    The only differences i like arent enough for me to go get one just yet.
    Mine is barely 6 months old, and it is doing the job.

    Thanks again :)

    Wow! And that's with the 5400rpm drive, too.

    This makes me super excited to get my 7200rpm new 15". :D

    Thank you!

    Yeah, should be even more noticeable.

    Thanks for watching, exactly the reaction I was hoping for.

    You're welcome!

    Thanks and you're welcome. I think with proper maintenance and perhaps minor upgrades, most recent Apple computers should last several years for the vast majority of consumers. I still have a 2006 white iMac serving up the Web in my dining room.

    Thanks for watching! Yeah I think this thing would be great with an SSD too, if you don't need the space. Prices aren't bad if you buy from a third party and installing drive and OS X isn't difficult either.

    You are welcome! Hey I just saw this ad somewhere on the Internet... apparently new MacBook Pros are being sold for pennies on the dollar! iPads too! ;)

    It took about 25 minutes for iMovie to encode the video in 1080p. I could definitely tell the fan was running, but I wouldn't call it noisy at all. I hope this helps.
