Benched the following programs:
3dMark01
3dMark03

Not too shabby for a Mac lappy running Windows, w00t w00t.

Awesome. How is the backlight bleeding on yours? Can you take a picture if possible of a black screen in a dark room?

I really want one of these but I'm trying to force myself to hold off for merom. Unless the Mac Pro has something incredible to offer, of course. :)

Edit: Need some more info if it's not a problem: what kind of battery life are you seeing? I think that's really it for now hehe.

I'll try and snap a pic for ya tomorrow or something... But the bleed isn't too bad, there's a bit along the bottom near the middle and a bit of a darker spot up at the top a bit to the right. The middle of the screen is straight gangsta though :D

Battery life is great! I used it off and on all day at work today for 9 hours... 30 mins here, 30 mins there. At the end of the day the batt life calculator still said I had an hour and 2 minutes of remaining power.

Tiz a great setup, and Windows runs like a raped ape :)

3dMark06 benchmark completed. Results have been posted in the first post! Not too bad actually, it could have been much much worse.

Whats your graphics card oc'd too? I have a 15" macbookpro that gets alot less than you because they underclocked the gpu to 300/300 (it is also the 1.83ghz version). I know mine doesn't get even close to those numbers unless I oc it to around 400/480. Does the 17" also underclock the gpu?

Actually I have no idea what the card is clocked @... haven't even looked.

What kind of results are you getting from yours?
