quote: So, the video linked to boasts a core temp of 90 deg C (not 100 but ok, close enough) and this is the focus. But what is this, the case temperature is less than 30 deg C? So that is not exactly going to cause injury is it?
quote: - Had to run Flash on YouTube to get the thing to produce those kinds of temperatures. This tells you everything that you need to know about the efficiency of Flash.
quote: - Chose to run Win7 to really prove his point. Enough said about the efficiency of Windows then.
quote: The hottest part of the case? Well it's where the power circuitry is in the top left hand corner, so nothing to do with CPU or GPU or any of that stuff these 'experts' are talking about since these are dealt with directly by the heatsink, heat pipes and fans.
quote: Part of the problem is that Apple didn't release drivers for graphics switching. So you're always using the discrete GPU vs the onboard when doing things like surfing the net. This is probably because they don't want Windows coming close in terms on battery life on their hardware.
quote: Because as explained in the video, Apple disables TurboBoost on the i5 and i7 under OS X. TB is the main distinguishing feature of the i5 and i7 over the i3. It's the primary reason you're paying extra for the i5 or i7 processor. The only way to enable it on a Macbook is to run Windows on it. Of course the temperatures will be higher once it's enabled (under Windows) - the processor is freed from OS X's artificial limitation and running at a higher clock speed.
