I updated my 15" 2.33 C2D machine last night. I am not wifiless by any means, so no new problems here. On the other hand, it didn't fix the problem with wifi cutting out on my now and again. That...

Enjoying my 15" 2.33 GHz C2D MBP too, but like HarriganC I'm having occasional wireless issues. Seems to be a known issue on the Apple Discussion forums, perhaps a software update to follow in the...

OK, to finish out this thread with a pleasant outcome, I bought a new C2D MBP on Friday. It's the 15" 2.33 model, so I gained over my previous MBP a faster chip and more hard disk space. It's a...

OK, I returned it yesterday. For what it's worth, here is how the conversation went at the Apple Store when I brought my MBP back for refund:
