    Nice review, glad to finally have a good thorough one here rather than just previews. ^^

    I especially like how you added in the Boot Camp feature and how well it performs.

    Thanks! If anyone (perhaps sitting on the fence on this one) has any questions I'll be checking this thread for the next couple of days.

    Thanks for the review. I'm trying to decide between this MBP and the Acer right now. What do you think about Parallels? Have any plans to use it?

    Apple's generally have better Quality machines than Acers as I've seen so I'd go for the Apple.

    You may benefit from filling out the FAQ and posting it in the "What notebook should I buy?" forum.

    Thanks CG! Very nice review - I'm one of those sitting on the fence. This will be an ideal purchase for me on 2 fronts: going back to MBA school and working on my graphics design business.

    Your review have alleviated the battery & heat issue and confirm the underclocked GPU.

    Quick ? - How much RAM did you get? 1GB or 2?

    Superb review! Too bad it scores bad in 3d marks compared to Acer...

    Hey, great review.
    How is the gaming performance under windows, and can you use the optical audio connections in windows as well.

    Cheers

    Wow, nice review!, awsome, you can run windows on bootcamp.

    This is one kool lappy, i think i saw one in my university, some guy had it, but i din't ask .

    Gotta love the dimensions and wieght!! wow.

    i'm not sure if you know, but the MBP is getting refreshed to address the heat issues and other problems. Something along the lines of return your MBP and get a new one with better stuff in it to cool it...etc etc.

    So check that out.

    Thanks,
