    Macbook Pro 13" Unibody
    Macbook Pro 13" Heat
    Just wondering if anyone has noticed the new Macbook Pro 13" getting a little warmer than the original unibody 13" macbook. It seems its getting hot on the top left corner and also on the bottom. Please let me know. Thanks

    Hi,

    Just got the new mbp 13', I'm asking myself the same question, it's get warm on the left of the palmrest and besides the plug thing...

    Too bad it's just the place where I put my hand
    I'm looking for solution to reduce the heat, just tried smcfancontrol, not so bad but not perfect.

    I would be happy to try a macbook for one day just to test...

    bye

    MacBook 11' with extra heat
    My MacBook also started to get so warm that sometimes it literally burns my hand if I hold the hindge part. I dont think it was this way all the time. Bottom left near the plug socket gets so heated. And what are the 5 lights in a row on the battery sometimes they blink green, can they be associated with this heat issue?

    I bought and returned the original unibody 13 inch. I came back to buy the new one two days ago and heat was really the only issue and the first thing I noticed. It gets wayyyyyyy hotter than the original unibody.

    Dont think its gonna be a problem. I'm looking to buy this: http://www.thermapak.com/

    So you basically returned your specimen of the best MacBook ever made... for a prototype MacBook Pro?

    enjoy the firewire

    Darn, mine has been running cool. I have the 13in MBP and the only time it gets warm is when the batter is really low and I plug it in to charge. Once it's at 95% it's cooler. Never hot to the touch just warm.

    My iMac burns like anything if you touch it after playing games on it.

    So I guess it depends on what you've been doing with it.
    Waiting for the game that takes full advantage of a 124bit, 3.5GHz, 8-core, 64Gig-RAM system.

    I have a MBP 13" and I do notice that it gets warm on the left side, but its never unbearably hot it only gets really warm when I play the sims 3 for an extended period of time.

    Hot hot hot
    I have exactly this same thing happen to me, gets up to around 95 before the fans decide to do anything about it.

    Perhaps a firmware fix will help it to cool off?

    seems like you are all complaining about the same problem ... the left side is where the CPU sits so it's bound to get hot, especially when you play Sims 3 dude

    i know dude. I was trying to make a point that unless I'm running something graphics intensive I don't have a heat problem.

    The laptop is fine. If you're that concerned about it, blow some compressed air through it to knock out the dust caused from the poor ventilation, dust, smoke, and random other pet hair and crap that you dudes let get into your machines.

    I've noticed that the hood on my car seems to get quite hot from time to time. It seems like it happens most often after the engine has been running or if it has been sitting in the sun for a while. What do you think guys? Is there something wrong? Should I take it back to the dealership?
