Apple Late June 2009 I bought a 13" MacBook Pro (2.26 GHz, 4 GB RAM). I suppose that after just three months, the blinding "first joys" over getting a laptop have worn off. By now, I deem my thoughts about this device to be realistic and of an appropriate level. The past few weeks I attained mastery over the Mac OS through personal discovery, accompanied by a very insightful book; I bought additional software and hacked the Dock to suit my preferences.

Doesn't work well with Linux

I have the same MBP. Indeed the hardware is very well put together and works seamlessly with the native MACOSX.

However I bought it mostly with Linux use in mind. I thought that because it is made with standard Intel & Nvidia chips it would work as good as any other laptop. Unfortunately there are SERIOUS problems with stability and heating. I was hopping that these problems would be fixed with the upcoming distributions but it seems that even ubuntu 9.10 beta has the same problems.

I am patiently waiting for the final 9.10 to come out. If it still doesn't work, I am selling the Mac.
