or any attemp to?
because i want a damn labtop now
Depends on what you mean.
The heat 'problem' is not a problem, unless you expect to be able to utilize 100% of both processor cores while still sitting the MB/MBP on your lap. If you expect to be able to do that, then no, they haven't fixed it. Otherwise, its not a problem.
my MB gets hotter than a witch's tit, but I have no prblems with it any laptop will get warm
actually its a notebook, not a laptop. it says that in the users guide.
Mine is hot as hell. I'm waiting a lil longer for more issues to send it in for so they can fix all of them at the same time.
I always thought those were supposed to be cold as in, colder than a witches tit on the shady side of an iceburg?
To dodge lawsuits, they are called notebooks. Same with Dell, etc.
as did I. but i got used to it. it's really no big problem unless I happen to just sit down with it on my lap whilst naked. but that hardly is the case.
I lay my MBP17 on my bare chest all the time. I have it in my lap, all the time.
The only time it is a problem is if I render video, or do something else that maxes out both cores. Then I have to set it down or put a plastic cutting board between me and it.
So, the problem is fixed.
supposedly the new macbooks have a new logic board which got rid of the whine and heat issues for the most part.
I haven't had any complaints about my MB. Admittedly it is warmer than my PBG4, but it isn't alarmingly hot. I can set it on my lap for general use. I figure I'll probably like the heat from it in the winter because I don't usually use my heater.
I bought mine a few weeks back and I can hear the whine, but I really have to be listening for it. it doesn't bother me at all.
is there a firmware update for the MB's? I couldn't find one on Apple's website
There isn't a "heat" problem.
There is a "totally unstable OS on intel platform" problem.
my bday is coming in 2 weeks.
should i swipe the plastic for the MB?
is it a good time?

i never sit with my notebook on my lap. :-/ iono never really have an issue with heat of notebooks since they are always on a desk for me.
I remember hearing about a battery recall for the MPB battery, because it got to hot.
Mine can get to the point where I can't even hold it on the bottom.
So then I cook eggs on it...
The "heat" problem w/ mac notebooks is probably still there. Instead of using a dab of artic silver on the cpu connection to the fan they pour that shit on, and in this case this is def not one of those where "more is better" so thats why they tend to get hotter than most,a nd if you ask apple its not a ptoblem to them.. caught that in maximum pc maG pretty lame on apples part if u ask me.
I heard this was only the case on the early ones. They stopped doing this.
My imac 20" is perfectly stable.. did you try taking out your ram sticks one by one yet?
It's not a problem, it's a feature. Now I can cook eggs when my power goes out.
My MBP is in for main board replacement, I'll update ya if it fixes the heat problem.
