"Buyer beware"2.0 starson by v2sav
Pros: -4GB DDR3 RAM
-2.53 GHz intel
-double touch pad (after you get used to it)
Cons: No vents, the whole computer is one big heat sink.
Gloss only display (cant work outside or in sun lit areas)
Apples fan threshold lets the CPU reach over 200 degrees
Summary: I am on my second Macbook Pro (first had a faulty hard drive).
With this new one while on the 9400M graphics card the top half of the screen will flicker every so often.
The computer will also reach insanely high temperatures unless a third party fan controller is installed.
The gloss display is beautiful while inside but is useless in the real world.
9600M GT is still not as fast as competing computers and will hold back rendering time.
The first issue of these computers would sleep in intervals of about 30 seconds causing the computer to drain its battery and heat to temperatures that would nearly burn your hand. Apple recently sent out an update to solve that problem but like i said before, now the top half of my screen flickers randomly when on the 9400M.
I am in a class of about 75 students that received the new Macbook Pro's when they first came out. Apple was proud to have such a large number of students receive their new flagship notebook, until we all found problems in them.
I am sure that newer versions of this computer are far better and much more stable than the very first versions that we were given. But it is a good idea to look into competing products before you join the Apple Fad.
