But srsly, that's fraud...Just sell it? Macs have pretty high resale value so it's not like you'd lose a ton of money.
I love how people throw the word "fraud" around when cheating warranties, the fbi isn't going to show up at your door for something so trivial.

on topic, run prime 95 and wrap the macbook in a towel.

Threads like this usually don't last too long for obvious reasons...

Well, as we all know at OCN, Mac's are way overpriced for the brand name. Targeted at college students, most of whom are on a budget or on loans to attend college. Once again, what program(s) would someone run to cause the computer to no longer run properly because of "faulty" hardware?

There's nothing at all wrong with a dual-core MBP; I'd gladly take it off your hands right now.

Why bother posting this type of topic? You had to have known what the outcome would be...

Well, we're speaking about a dual core MacBook Air. Believe me, if I had the funds, I would get all of OCN laptops and such, provide a charity of some kind for college students or high school students. It's sad the economy has come down to things like this. Anyways, I know you all have ideas in your minds thinking how to burn in a mac computer without voiding the warranty, any takers at donating ideas?

My idea, run everything possible, including F@H, with not much room for ventilation, that could mess up a few things in there ehh?

Didn't know what the outcome would be. My theory is to go into things not expecting anything in return at all. It's worth a try though, I know there are many fellow OCN members out there that are much more tech savvy than I am.

I seriously want to kick you in the nuts, kid; you've got a perfectly functioning laptop, yet are too incompetent to make it run fast, so you'd rather just complain and try to kill it in the name of "scientific purposes".

What an complete and utter joke.

Jlells01, tell us how to make a MacBook Air C2D run faster than? Without voiding the warranty, that means no changing the voltages, not running bootcamp, etc. I can easily do it on a PC, I have no knowledge on a Mac though.

you wouldn't hurt the cpu save hitting it with hammer they have over temp throttling and shut off. your more likely to hurt a solder connection witch could be fixed a with proper reflow anyways.

Throttle stop has been used before to alter the multiplier to overclock but, i think you need an unlock multi like an x9000 cpu.

Also people tend not to respond to nicely to these threads on OCN. I can't say I blame them. I would sell it and trade up assuming it doesn't already have decent gfx card in it, other wise i'd keep it.

I'Ve just now gotten my 2007 Acer 5920G and i bought it with out hdd or os and had to save up for and HDD and extra ram. let alone a 2000 usd mac book.
