    Ah. Yet another strategy to get apple consumers to buy another machine even faster.

    Mine gets to around 70c maximum.. but hardly a surprise.. they essentially use the bottom plate as a heatsink. Going off the reviews though, these seemed to be a slight improvement of the previous MBPs for that.

    That is pretty hot, but to be fair I'd rather have the form of the MacBook that is fine 95% of the time than a big bulky plastic laptop that doesn't make a meal of benchmarks.

    Wrong. MacBook Pro CPU reaches 100 °C. If the MacBook Pro casing reached 100 °C you'd get some really nasty burns.

    Anyway 100 °C is well within the specs of the CPU so stop trolling and go away.

    My 2007 2.4Ghz 15" hits 100C too. Although it could just be dust build up as it used to only hit 90C!

    The 1.83GHz Core Duo in my MBP used to regularly hit 95C. It's no great shakes.

    Hmm I dunno, 100C really is hot. It surely must be reaching the thermal limit.

    Hmm.. my MBP3,1 nVidia 8600M GT would unsolder itself if I left it to cook!

    I use smcFan religiously. Current temps 46degC. I get worried when it's at 70.. sometimes it gets to 80s.

    I do like the traditional pc magazine immature tone of ZOMG ITS BAD IN THIS ONE SITUATION THAT I CREATED!!! ZOMG!!! Im pretty sure like any normal company apple have investigated the heat levels from the new i7 before making the product

    Seemingly the Fujitsu wasn't an I7 which just makes PC advisor look like incompetent fools.

    Nice assassination there...

    Trolls were hungry. They appear to have eaten and crawled back into their lair.
