Hello everyone.

Firstly I'd just like to thank everyone who commented in my refurbished macbook air thread, the responses were valuable and I am only waiting to see if the price drops on refurbs if there is a refresh. This question is from a friend of mine with an ultimate 13 inch, and he was wondering if its possible to underclock the 2.13 ghz processor down to 2 flat. He said its getting hot while using video editing programs. Is this possible?

Coolbook can undervolt, reducing temps at the same clock speed, but I mean, these laptops are built with the ability to handle the heat from the full load of whatever CPUs Apple has made available in them, nothing's going to break if you run it hot. If it's running truly TOO hot, something's wrong, take it in.
