    It looks like the author was looking at the clarksfield chipset, I wonder what his opinions would be if he tested out the arrandale chipset with its lower TDP 18w - 35w (compared to clarksfield tdp of 45w-55w).

    Apple laptops historically and continually run hot, and so I wonder how they'll manage clarksfield in apple's current laptop case.

    They could underclock it, but most likely they'll have to redo the design a bit to improve airflow. Don't ask me how, though, I don't have a UB.

    45 W Clarksfield gives similar heat to 35 W Penryn.

    I've not read or seen any documents that has shown the i7 to run cooler then tthe Penryn. I'm only basing my opinion on the TDP
