TWIMC, Got a C2D MBP, 2.16, 1GB. This notebook doesn't get very hot or anything. Even under heavy load. I remeber lookling at the CD MBP's in the stores a while back and touching areas around the computer to see how hot it was. They were on fire! One even left a little burn on my finger when I slowed drug the top part of my finder along the smooth metal strip above the F keys. Not noisy either except for when the fans speed up under something very procesor heavy but even then not that loud. Pretty suprised here. Any questions?
