    Anybody knows what chipsset Apple uses for the i5/i7 MBP? It's not the HM55 or PM55?

    My guess is that it's QM57 because it's available as embedded and supports IGP and has 8x PCIe. Not 100% sure but it seems to be the best options from this

    They usually do only one model if there are no big changes or differences between the models. Why would they? The 17" is just bigger than 15", from inside it's pretty much the same

    The 17" is just the 15" before the Subway diet.
