Quick question

Anti-glare or Glossy?

I'm happy to have the anti-glare again. But the glossy is nice too. I just can't stand the reflection.

Be carefull, 13" macbook pro models don't have quadcore, the biggest is still dual-core

That's the nice thing about upgrading relatively infrequently - you *really* notice the speed jumps and maybe appreciate more the extra horsepower that a new machine brings.

I went from a Dual G5 to a Quad i7 so you can imagine how *nice* that is :D

what are the best options out there for folks wanting the power but not the big size?

i'm gonna go with... No.

i can see it reducing heat... but not by a great deal. hard drives don't get that hot. the processor is the real toaster in a computer. if you think about it, with the exception of those oversized tower cases you rarely see fans directly on the hard drives - near them yes, on them, almost never.

15" is the perfect balance. Smaller and the screen size is annoying. And it hardly takes more space than the 13.

agreed.

the nature of my job has put me in contact with quite a few lap tops... 17" are great until you have to move em.
13" have a tendency to keep you scrolling.
15" seems to just be that sweet spot.

refrain.

then tell them to fuck off and let you see the 15" models.


oh and @ glitchrock - congrats on the new powerhouse!
