I’ve recently updated my MacBook Pro to the final version of Jaunty. Mine is a MacBookPro3,1. This is a 2.2GHz 15″ with a 128MB Nvidia 8600. I believe it is the first MacBook Pro to use the LED backlit display.
Overall, Jaunty works a treat on it. It seems to suspend and resume properly, I was able to pair it over Bluetooth to my Apple Bluetooth keyboard without issue. I was even able to get the display working on the external 20″ Apple CinemaDisplay that I just won’t let go of. This is something that I have yet to sort out in XP. (What can I say, I haven’t tried very hard.)
The only gotcha so far is that the wireless isn’t perfect. Sometimes it catches my wireless network fine, others it just refuses to get a DHCP lease. This is a bcm43xx-based wireless card, so there’s no great surprise there. As I tend to use the MacBook Pro as a semi-portable machine, I’ve just stuck to wired network for the moment.
Anyway, to anyone looking to run 9.04 on a MacBook Pro, my experience has been quite positive overall.
