    So what are the early reports on this?

    noticeably cooler? as in, bearable to actually have on your lap?

    IMO they're likely to run even hotter than the previous MBs.

    Which contradicts what others who actually bought one have posted

    Mine certainly does not run hot enough that it's uncomfortable.

    I have the new SR MacBook and also had the previous refresh for a few weeks. I can't say for certain but the SR MacBook seems to run slightly cooler than the last model. It's only slightly warm on the bottom when i'm just relaxing on my couch and it's in my lap.. I only do some light video watching/web surfing.. And seeing that the new MacBooks seem to run over 4 hours on a single charge tells me that this is achieved probably by a cooler running cpu/components.
