also, i hope that we can get some nice performance comparisons between different MacBook Pros from Macworld soon. for example, it would be nice to see how XP benchmarks duplicated on the 1.83GHz model with a 128MB Ati x1600 perform, or a machine the same as yours but with the faster HD to see what impact it has. without this kind of analysis a review in isolation doesn't help guide anyone to buying the computer that best fits their needs and budget.

Simple: a 7200 RPM drive does practically nothing for you.

- A few friends noted that the 7200 would likely drain the battery noticeably faster.
- I can always upgrade the HD later, but probably not the processor.
- Eh, what the heck.

Ah well, everything's relative.

I'm used to fallout from reviews of games, which come with the territory. The usual "omfg wut ur crzy dis g@me iz a 10 lolz" replies don't bug me so much. Apparently, hardware reviews are on a whole different level.
I thank the 1% of you that actually submitted tactful, intelligent arguments or comments.
