The new MacBook Pro 15-inch models set all-new benchmarks for Mac notebooks. The 15-inch MacBook Pro feature Intel Core i5 processors, which boost performance up to 50 percent(1) and reach Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.33GHz. Next-generation NVIDIA graphics bring high performance to everything from 3D games to photos and videos. And the built-in battery lasts up to 10 hours (8 to 9 hours on the 15-inch models).(2) (1) Up to 50 percent faster compared with previous-generation MacBook Pro. (2) Testing conducted by Apple in March 2010 using preproduction 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo–based 13-inch MacBook Pro, 2.66GHz Intel Core i7–based 15-inch MacBook Pro, and 2.53GHz Intel Core i5–based 17-inch MacBook Pro.

This particular MBP is excellent. I use a Quadcore PC for graphic intensive work and picked up one of these to help with development work - webpages and research. This laptop blows away my Windows Quadcore, totally! It is so speedy. Startup in about 30 seconds, shutdown in 2-4 seconds, resume from sleep in 0-2 seconds. Applications open in seconds and there are no lags, hiccups or awkward moments when you wonder whether your computer is out for tea. OS X is solid with lots of innovations such as quicklook which save heaps of time. PDF files can be viewed instantly. Images can be multi-selected and viewed swiftly or in slideshow mode. Wonderful zooming. With Windows laptops a wireless mouse is an absolute must. I bought a Logitech desktop set in anticipation for using with the MBP, but I use the touchpad 90% of the time. It's so useable and responsive. The screen is gorgeous - yummy good. I like how the Mac OS is so simple and easy to use, plus there are some really good freeware apps to improve things.
Here are a few.
PathFinder - not free - tabbed Finder with dual panels. A Must!
iGetThingsDone - Task organiser
NeoOffice - completely free office suite
Opera Browser - although I use Safari 95% of the time, I do use Opera to grab html and image elements from websites
Carbon Copy Cloner - backup util
ClamXAV - antivirus
Burn - backup and write DVD's / CD's
Filezilla - FTP / uploading files
GrabberWindow - essential - takes screenshots
Inkscape - vector app
Jalbum - create online photo albums
Jumpcut - souped up clipboard
Journler - excellent for note taking
MacSword - Bible browser / study
Mindnode Pro - Mindmapping.

The MacBook expensive, no HDMI, could use two more usb outlets, but using it is another story. It just kicks butt!!!! Fast, beautiful graphics, and high-octane preformance. Set-up was easy, and the it sort of grows on you because of the ease of operation. And mind you, this is from someone who until recently never used a Mac at all. I still use a PC ( I also have a Samsung N-150 Netbook), but I find myself using the Mac more often. If you can afford it, GET IT.

PS: Get the AppleCare Protection Plan if you can.

Been running my new MacBook Pro for about 4 weeks now and it's handled just about anything I've thrown at it. Primarily used for web development and digital photography, there's very few hiccups found on this machine. Apple's software, as always, is solid and full featured, but not necessarily deep with customization.

Pros:
+Incredibly slim and light
+Beautiful screen
+Games modestly
+Works right out of the box with no junkware

Cons:
- Gets INCREDIBLY hot, it will burn you if you game on your lap
- For the hardware it's pricey, but you pay for the entire package

I've been waiting for an eternity (feels like it anyway) to get a laptop. I'm glad it waited, this one is great. So far, I have no complaints. The battery holds up well, it's built very solidly, and runs fast.

Yes, the screen is glossy, but I haven't found it to be annoying in the slightest.

Yes, it gets warm after using it for a while, but not too bad, and the aluminum body seems to be good at dissipating the heat.

And yes, I was stressed out about spending so much, but now that it's all over, I zero regrets.

I love it.

This product has a fatal flaw that would have been a deal killer if I had done a little research and read some of the threads on other websites, including Apple's, before I purchased this machine. This is my *third* one of these machines since October 5, 2010, when I placed the original order. The new mid-2010 MacBook Pros have graphics problems and no one can seem to figure out what it is and Apple doesn't seem to want to admit there's a problem. Every single machine I've had (including this one) has a suspiciously similar problem: graphics processing. The screen randomly turns into a mosaic/tiled look when using Safari and iTunes (both Apple products) and I have to turn the machine off to get rid of the problem. Two brand-new machines have gone into kernel panic. I spent this much money for a poorly designed product?? I'd like to think I didn't, but that would only be kidding myself. I plan to sell this machine and get a new model when Apple starts producing a MacBook Pro that doesn't ship with unresolved hardware problems. I love Apple products; this is my 5th or 6th Apple computer, but the mid-2010 MacBook Pros (*all* of them) have a very serious problem that should have been tested and resolved before the design went into production.

**UPDATE** December 5, 2010
I think I may have found a workaround of sorts to the problem I initially described. The machine I am working on now, which is the computer in which this review is listed, has done that tiled/mosaic effect thing described above a couple of times. Each time, I have gone into Energy Saver in the System Preferences menu and unchecked the box labeled "Automatic graphics switching". Each time, the tiled/mosaic look has immediately disappeared from the screen, without rebooting or any other action on my part.
