    Note to our BETT staff. Notice how clean it is after 3 days!

    Just Shaun and myself. It's a big outlay.

    No, we won't be using it at BETT due to the very large US flag on it. It will be in storage for ISTE 2011 in Philidelphia next year.

    Well... it crashes/freezes a lot more then I expected. Hardware/build wise its very nice but OSX is not exactly as simple or as "it just works" as I thought. I have to say my impression of OSS for mac is rather lacking over windows. Most of the stuff I use on the mac is payware where as on windows I had much more freeware options but fusion is helping. The heat issue is pretty annoying but Fan Control seems to have helped. I have heard stories of warped unibody cases which wont eject CD's anymore which was very concerning for something of this expense.
    As for programming for the iPhone on it, damn I hate jobs and his objectivec junk...

    I never had any problems with the build wise or OS X not being able to do what I want - what sort of things are you trying to do or things that you do on windows for free that you cant on os x ?

    Heat wise I only ever had that issue from my power book G4 and that was only due to

    1 - it being very old and over used by myself ( as was a brand new power book when I first purchased it out of the apple store in London )

    2. When I had it sitting on my blanket in bed without any stand or anything underneath it which most likely didnt help point 1 when it got old

    We suspect that as Shauns MacBook Pro has the i5 chip, Apple has not yet tweaked their code for it.
