    I am new to macbook pro and thinking to buy 2nd model, as a graphic designer it fits to me.
    But i heard a lot from website and blog that it generates heat a lot and get hotter in bottom and top keyboard areas etc.

    I really love macbook pro so i took my decisions to buy it. But i am really curious before buying it. But even some of my friends say its quite cool and they never saw this issue.

    Can you please guide me.

    It can get a bit warm if you are using it intensively. The newer macbook pros do not get nearly as hot though. This is all easily resolved with a laptop cooler in your lap.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    What do you mean by "This is all easily resolved with a laptop cooler in your lap." is this mean an internal cooler within macbook pro?

    Specs:
    2.5ghz Penryn MBP, 4 Gb Ram, 512mb 8600M GT, 250gb HDD & Black 30gb iPod, Black 16gb iPhone 3G
    the new MBP's dont get anywhere near as hot as the old ones, i just upgraded to the same model your lookign at.
    I have no trouble with it sitting in my lap, the old one did become uncomfortable after a little while though.
