How in the World are Macbook's Cooled? - Page 4

post #31 of 46
I actually stopped the last time I was at best buy to look at what components macs actually had in them...as was predictably disappointed. 4gb of memory, an i5, and a 6970m with 1gb of memory. But they just look so nice though.

if you want at laugh, go try to build one on their website and look at the price increase for example from 4gb ddr3 to 8gb 1333....200 DOLLARS thinking.gif

and god forbid you should want 16 gigs of ram in an Imac because you will have to drop an additional....wait for it....

$600.00

Doesnt Apple Computers use buffered ram though? That would explain the high cost. Also im pretty sure their mac book air uses the casing as a giant heat spreader

I used to have a Core2Duo MacBook Pro and the temps were ridiculous. Idled around 52°C and under load (games, video encoding, etc.) it would hit 83°C. The area inbetween the keyboard and hinge was so hot it would literally burn me.

 

Never again.

Only their desktops do i believe, if you go over 4gb per stick.

From what you've seen? Or from what you've pulled out of your ass?

"PEBKAC" is the only reason any computer will overheat tbh.

My Thinkpad is the same way and they're one of the more highly regarded notebooks that isn't made of plastic. It's the nature of the beast unless you want shiny plastic with fingerprints all over it.

On my 2011 13" I can hardly ever hear the fan unless I'm gaming. Idles at 33 degrees, mobile sandy bridge really is amazing. My old Asus and it's C2D idled around 55C with just chrome and word open. The iGPU hit 94C at load as well (even after being cleaned out with compressed air).

If anything I have a problem with the aluminium getting too cold overnight.

Yes, how dare those users play a game on a poorly designed computer.

I just want to say that the Mac Pro desktops don't have fans on their heatsinks...

Shows how good that trusty company is, right??

Huh? I played games on a first gen Macbook Pro (Core Duo, not even Core 2, but with a much worse cooling design than the newer ones), and it never overheated. Neither did my Mid-2010 17". No matter how hard I tried.

Poorly designed? Yet another comment with no actual proof or substance behind it.

Errrrrrr just because it doesn't have a fan actually attached to the heatsink, doesn't mean that there isn't a fan less than two inches away blowing air through it.

Comment #3 with no proof or substance in this thread. Sad. Oh well, stupid trolls will be stupid trolls.
