Have you not paid attention to gizmodo at all over the past few weeks? They were gushing about the MBP like it was going to save the PC industry.
It all depends on the viewpoint of the author, but the part you quoted is true (if we only consider the IB version), nor exaggerated.

I expect every other laptop company to scramble to release their own version
IB gets hot while OC'd. Normal usage it's either the same or lower temps, and these chips will be running @ 17w if my guestimations are correct.
