    They put a quad core and dedicated graphics in a .71" chassis?! It will overheat before the OS has even loaded!

    This isn't Samsung we are talking about here.

    Just in line with IPAD3.

    Apple is the company for coffee drinkers, as their new hardware will keep your coffee warm.

    What a novel idea. Build in coffee warmers. :->

    IMO its widely known that Apple is less concerned with thermal design and more focused on "How it looks". Most noob consumers have no clue and happly listen to the company to "Don't worry about it".

    Then don't buy a Mac. It is really that simple. You sound like a serial whiner. Spend your money elsewhere. Dear God. It must really suck being you...

    You sound like a whiner yourself.

    Ah the old: "I know you are but what am I come back"...

    Compare the thermals of Macbooks versus recent offerings by Dell and HP. I think you'll be surprised.

    It not really that different from the old MBP. They took out the spinning disks and it gives them more room for cooling and battery. The screen is also thinner than the old one so the whole 0.24" difference doesn't come only from making the fans thinner. Two blower fans can still handle that kind of power, many laptops with GT540M level graphics make do with one small fan, this has two well engineered ones.

    Strangely enough, I just ran a test with Diablo III, Normal Act III at full 2880x1800 res with all settings on defaults (High, with one or two Medium's) and was getting 20-24 fps when a couple dozen creatures were onscreen. The interesting thing was I did this with the machine on my lap and it didn't get uncomfortable. My old MBP 17" got uncomfortably hot under lesser conditions.

    I really do believe that the new generation of CPUs coupled with the incredible cooling system will actually result in cooler running than previous MBPs.

    Based on the recent article ( I wouldn't expect a 650M to be able to run over 30 fps at Retina resolution. I'll definitely be interested to see real world benchmarking.
