All is fine here. Just ran the firmware on my early 2011 15" MPB. After installation the computer restarted, the fans worked for about 30 seconds at full speed, then a second restart, and thats it.

It might be helpful to word the description as something like "For SOME mid-2010 and early-2011 MacBook Pros." I know I should have read the fine print more carefully, but I have an early-2011 MacBook Pro, and I was initially baffled why I couldn't find the update. (It doesn't apply to 13-inch models.)

My MBP 9,1 (mid-2012) isn't affected, i.e., SU says there are no updates.

Despite no model indication from Apple, only applies for MacBook Pro from 2010 and 2011.

Apple doesn't say, but I think this is only for the most recent MacBook Pros. It's not supported (not for) my mid-2010 17".

The 1.3 SMC update has an unclear effect on temperatures. (It brings me up to version 1.27f2 - go figure.) I was running up to 83C or slightly higher according to iStat, under moderate to heavy load. (The load was an external monitor streaming Netflix, Wi-Fi running at 150 KBps, and several applications. This does not seem like a heavy load to me, but I guess decoding a movie takes work.) Tonight, I went up to 83 without even any streaming (but with an external monitor). But after a few minutes it has settled down to between 72 and 76. Here's my complete temperature list for comparison. First number is first reading; second is 10 minutes after startup.

To reiterate, not for unibody MBPs.

Is this meant only for the unibody models?
