with an IR temperature gun we measured the aluminium underside of the laptop at a thigh-scolding 60°C

Because Aluminium Bodys in a device that produces a lot of heat is a great idea, yeah its strong, but plastic can be just as strong if its well built.

Turions were known to heat up...and heat up bad. Are those temps now?

It's not Apple's fault, your holding your laptop wrong. Steve Jobs will cool it with his personality.

Wrong, mobile CPUs have a higher thermal shutdown temperature. They are able to run @ 100C constantly. My laptop with a broken fan sits @ 102C nonstop when CPU is @ 90% or gaming. No problems for 3+ years.

Cold at night? The new MBP13 has a revolutionary new feature to keep you very warm while the laptop is on your lap. No need for snuggies or a heater. If you get first degree burns, it's user error, you're holding it wrong.
It's actually $999 if you use the discount. Who wouldn't be smart about buying anyways?

MBP's have always had heat issues. I've gotten a first degree burn on my hand before as well. Feel asleep with laptop next to pillow.

But PC laptops have similar issues when you buy one that is around 1" thick. It's just that most PC laptops are huge honking laptops that should be called desktop replacements instead.

That makes it okay. Lol.

Actually many don't... any examples? My HP Envy 14 doesn't crack 80C running Prime95... I just did it now actually. Its 74.2F in my room and it didn't crack 78C. The fan didn't go full blast, sounds like it was at the 3rd highest setting (you only hear full blast when it reboots some times IIRC). Was doing default torture test. So yeah... lol...

Yet again apple shows its dominance over pc dinosaurs. Macs produce superior amounts of heat and will now punish unfit users with 3rd degree burns. THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT

Replacement bottoms for Macs are pretty cheap. I have been contemplating buying a replacement bottom piece for my GF's macbook air and drilling a few small ventilation holes directly over the single fan inside. This would at least give the fan some cool air to blow over the COU/GPU. I'm worried that this will make some other part overheat though...
It would be difficult to design a keyboard that would allow air intake between keys, while still being durable enough to last more than a few hours of use. The only way they could really do what you describe is to add vents all around the sides of the keyboard. Which would allow cold air to the periphery of the mainboard... away from main heat producing components. Smart. Oh, and it would be about as waterproof as a boat made of swiss cheese.

Well then where does the most air come from? The optical drive? My laptops keyboard is vented. It wouldnt add tooo much air, but air can certainly slowly move through it.

I am the token thinkpad user here, I can game etc on my i5 laptop without a problem- the exhaust (out of the 2 large vents) gets hot, but it's the exhaust, not the laptop itself...


A good design and enough vents, and an i5 or i7 can be put in a laptop without heat issues.
(And to the user who talked about battery life- my thinkpad has an extended battery and I could get another that I could swap between classes- but I dont need to with my 6 hours of battery life. (I opted for performance- core i5, nvidia graphics, higher than standard res screen, etc.- so 6 hours is great!))
