I know there are many threads regarding this, and even so, I've not read anything conclusive. I owned a core i5 mbp, it would get fairly hot when using compressor or demanding tasks (80-85 degrees), I gave that computrer to my bro and am planning on getting an i7, does it get any hotter? Any proof or real world comparisons?
Just for reference i do fcp and audio design programs.
Thanks in advance

During a 3 minute Hi-Def render of a complex motion file inside FCP, fans ramped up to 4000 rpm, and my maximum cpu temp was no higher than 80 degrees. usually kept to about 78 degrees once the fans caught up.
