I recently just got a 2.8 UMBP, 15 inch model. I swapped it with my previous 2.4 model. However, when it comes to heat, I've noticed that my 2.8 heats up a little more than the 2.4 on idle. For example, the temperature on the 2.4 was around 45 (according to istat) degrees when browsing on the web; the 2.8 measures about 50-55 degrees. I don't know if it's because of the cpu difference, or being that its a newer model. Has anyone noticed this difference? This is kind of giving me second thoughts of installing windows on bootcamp because I don't want to have the notebook heating up enough to be hot to the touch.
