it took them this long to come out with it and glad they did. My workflow is extremely fast and efficient. While using Photoshop and Lightroom and files around 74mb's each, my computer barely gets warm, loads these large image files in about 1 to 2 seconds and can do other things at the same time. If I have technical questions I call the help line and get a call back in 30 seconds.

Run time while working these files is a few hours on battery and I didn't expect more. So far I am a happy camper. I got 4gb's of RAM because after reading about the SSD and response, I felt I could get more later and cheaper, if needed. I am not sure what more RAM will do in my case as the load time with ALL functions in my image workflow are loaded in a blink of an eye, or faster but it is easy to do if needed. I also got the nonglare high definition screen and can really notice the difference coming form my G4 that is 5 years old.

No beach balls but one thing I haven't been able to get working is the TEchTool Deluxe. Since it downloads per advice of Apple I thought it was part of their system but it isn't so they aren't too much help, though they try.

The woofer system of the MacBook Pro is silly and not a subwoofer at all but other than that and the fact that one should really use external speakers for real sound, I am having a good time with this comptuter.

    I think he meant to start his first sentence with an ellipsis (...) so it would be a continuation of the subject line:

    " I got the MacBook Pro i7 15 inch with SSD and I am sorry . . .

    . . .it took them this long to come out with it and glad they did."

    I get it. The subject topic starts the first sentence of the post. Clever.

    I agree. I misread it too. I clicked on it to see what problems he was having with it and he gives a "glowing review" Someone's trying to be clever around here! (wink, wink)

    I'm just wondering, since I plan to buy my first MBP and I choose this i7core i5 inch MBP. Do you face any problems with this machine? It looks like quite a big number of people are experiencing "freeze" on this dude =)
    Would really glad to hear from you =D

    Dont ever say good things on this Board about your Apple product or you will be yelled at. Its hard being on a board with all these Dell Shareholders. I said great things about my I phone once and i never heard the end of it.

    I did as you, an i7 and I put an SSD in. Then I upgraded to 8gb's of RAM. It's another great improvement, not as dramatic as the switch to an SSD, but terrific, recommended (by me).
