    New MBP vs Old MBP
    Hey all,

    As I can get a pretty decent deal to exchange my current 9-day-old MBP for the new one, I'm exploring my options as the 80GB extra space is worth a lot to me.

    I wanted to ask if there's anything the older MBP does better than the new one?

    e.g. the new one runs hotter, the HDD is slower (I think I heard someone mention that) etc.

    Would appreciate your feedback.

    Thanks!

    Specs:

    The only differences between the old MBP and the new ones are the bigger hard drive, the slightly faster CPU, and the multi-touch trackpad. Since all of this is an improvement, there's nothing about the old one that is inherently better.

    That's true, on paper it seems better but I wanted to hear from someone who has used one (I know it's only been available a few days, but...!) as to whether it runs hotter etc.

    It's a different, new setup and it may well have a few teething problems which I'd just like to know about.

    I really wouldn't worry, they didn't change anything except perfecting manufacturing and getting a different processor they can sell more for cheaper.
