    Your mind is made up, just get the darn thing and enjoy it. What apple laptop isn't reasonably hot and whiny anyway?

    Big news. The firmware update released today drastically reduces the external temperature of my macbook. I can hear the fans spin most of the time now at a low rpm. BUY BUY BUY!

    Oddly enough this update did indeed drop the temp, almost 8-10* at idle. (Using CoreDuoTemp to mesure). Before, it was running at 61-62* idle, now it's at 52-54*.

    Just ran the mbp at full load (~5 mins), b4 update the temp is 82*. After update, temp seems to of not changed. But there is some inconsistency as the temp fluctuates from 79-82*C more often than it has before, so the update could be trying to keep it cooler. If so, it's around 4-5*.

    Keep in mind these temperature readings are for the CPU as the real temp for real world use will actually be cooler.

    -------------------

    Anyone else w/ difference in temp b4 and after update?
