Impressions of the Apple MacBook Pro

I still don't have a MacBook Pro (poor me..) but the first impressions are starting to arrive from people that received their laptops.

A blogger posts his experience with the new machine

I'm quite happy with it. Immediate impressions:
  • Much faster than my old PowerBook
  • Gorgeous screen
  • Awesome power connector
  • Runs hotter
  • Better sound
  • Nicer form factor (slightly thinner)

He also claims that some programs running under Rosetta in the new MacBook Pro are even faster than their native versions, what he attributes to poor optimization of the x86 code.

Anyway the MacBook Pro looks like an impressive machine.
