I'm interested in down/upgrading my 1 GHz TiBook for a new 1GHz 12" PowerBook. I would like the smaller form factor, lighter weight, etc. The only games I play are Civ III, The Sims Unleashed, AoEII, and SimCity 4.

-Have the heat issues been resolved or does the 12" still get unbearably hot?
-Will the 32MB GeForce run my games well? (Considering I'll have 768 MB RAM)
-Are there any other issues with the 12" that I should know about?

I would love to get the new 15", but will only get it if the 12" still isn't where it should be. Thanks for any help.

Anybody, anybody? I would appreciate any advice you can give me, or a place I can go for some answers. Thanks!

My 12" PB never gets "unbearably hot"... Warm, yes... Hot? no.

I purchased my 12 inch the day of the announcement and it isn't set to ship until the 25ht. I haven't heard of anyone getting their's yet, so you will have to be patient, and wait until people can get their hands on them.
