I'm wondering if anyone has upgraded from a 15" non-unibody MacBook Pro to the new unibody 13" MacBook Pro? The thing I like least about my 15" MBP is how hot it gets. Not running anything particularly heavy most of the time. I'm wondering if the new 13" MacBook Pro will get as hot.

QUOTE Thanks

I use the non unibody 15 MBP at work everyday and use the 13 mbp at home. The 13 only gets mildly warm at most, usually its quite cool. In comparison to the 15 inch its always running warm to hot. I think that in the new unibody it makes a much better heatsink so you really notice the heat difference.

I have a new 13" MBP and my sister has some Lenovo Laptop. Her laptop gets Very Hot. And compared to that "Very Hotness" my 13" MPB only gets warm.

-Very Hot
-Warm 13" MPB
