Searched and read some about the issue. I did not spot a 'fix'. Perhaps you wouldn't mind hashing this one over again? Mine gets extremely hot in no time. I called for help and they set me up with the local Apple store. A new fan was installed, but the laptop still heats up way too much in my opinion. Anyone have similar experience? I have AppleCare extended warranty. My only comparison is to a work issued Dell that does not get hot at all. Love the Mac, but am uncomfortable due to heat and worried about heat related wear on the machine. Where do I turn next? Would you suggest a cooling pad type device or modifications/software changes to the Mac?
