    The only reason I am not buying a MBP is because of the heat. A 17" burned my finger and actually left a mark! I was looking forward to MBP's with the new chip because it was supposed to be faster and cooler than the old. But now I see articles like the linked that point out that the new chip will run hotter!?

    How are Apple engineer's going to avoid increased casing heat in the new MBPs'? Any thoughts?

    I don't know if I really trust the information on the website. I don't see any links to tests done with Merom chips. The only other links are to DailyTech.
