Use hardware test mode directly on latest MacBook pro

I knew you could do this with iMacs, but I could have swore that I remember reading that you needed a CD for my new MacBook Pro. I will try this later.

Yep. It works without the CD, but the CD that came with my computer has a hardware test too. Ideally, one would want to run the one from the system if possible because Apple could potentially update it via software update.

The fact that this is on the hard drive is surprising to me. I assumed that they had it coded into frimware, or whatever it is called for Intel Macs.
