OK, I didn’t get a new MacBook Pro device but today Apple sent me a new firmware update so the brains in my MBP is brand new. The firmware update brings the firmware up to version 1.4 and the following improvements:
About MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.4
This update improves the performance and reliability of Intel Core 2Duo processors and fixes issues with Boot Camp for MacBook Procomputers.
I don’t use Boot Camp as I prefer Parallels Desktop but I do have a Core 2 Duo processor so the update applies to my MBP. The update process went as expected and only took about 5 minutes. The very first Firefox session after the update hung up with the dual processor graph showing that one of the two processors was maxing out at 100% so here’s hoping the update didn’t introduce this. It’s never happened to me before so this might not be good. I had to move over to a Windows box to do this post. :)
