But I do have one question. I purchased a 15" Macbook Pro W/Glossy Screen just over a month ago and I would like to know if anyone can tell me if there is an exchange option since the purchase isn't that old.

I believe that they will swap the item if the update is within 30 days of your purchase date.

THe updated graphics card is very welcome and will be especially useful for Aperture (oh and WOW too!).

 

Not sure about the better chipset (Santa Rosa), which might make it a little faster....

 

Wait for benchmarks I suppose. I don't think I will upgrade from a C2 MBP. Might be worth an upgrade from C1 MBP though.

I wouldn't mind having 4Gb of RAM. It kind of grates me that I've got to throw 1Gb away when I upgrade my MBP to 3Gb.

I just hope they have fixed all the hardware issues, I've got through about six now.
