So how hot the new MBP could be? Well, its too hot to handle, supported by reports “the whole laptop gets uncomfortably warm to the touch — with one source reporting it is “almost too hot” to touch.” So definitely there’s MacBook Pro’s cooling design glitch that when the Core-i7 CPU is bring up to maximum tasks and emitted the heat (up to 105 degrees Celsius – Intel’s Spec) the chassis takes up to 39 degrees Celcius, that’s 3 degrees up the normal body temperature.
High quality and durable devices is simply what you can get when its tagged by known moniker “Mac“, then I must say it’s true. Unfortunately some of those devices is known for design issues. This was the case for new 17-inch MacBook Pro that uses the latest Intel Core-i7-620M besides the incredible performance brought by the high-rated CPU is the undesirable emitted heat on the laptop chassis experienced by its users.
MacDailyNews Take: To recap: The MacBook Pro’s Core i7 processer never exceeds Intel’s thermal spec limit. The MacBook Pro’s case gets warm under maximum and abnormal processor stress, up to 3.6° F above normal human body temperature, or 98.6° F. OMG, alert the media!
I hope Apple will do something about this, for some reasons that I don’t want to see a MacBook Pro grill, coffee maker, oven and stove in the future. Well, seriously MacBook isn’t the cheap, so better we get our money’s worth.
