    ya, wondering this myself...

    why they compare Gen 1 to Gen 4 makes no sense

    it's not even compared to a C2D

    I have a gen 1 and my fans never hit 5000rpm. Of course I don't loop benchmarking software for 30 minutes either!

    Come now. They are cooler than a 3860MHz slower single-core. That's enough for me.

    How does the MBP 2.16 Core Duo beat the MBP 2.5 Penryn in the OpenGL/spinning squares tests?

    I have to concur with Engadget... I picked up a new 2.4 this morning and I have to say it's the coolest running MacBook series computer I've ever owned. This includes the MacBook Air SSD which I've been using a lot lately.

    First Mac here, but from using the new MBP the past few days, I can honestly say, i have not noticed any heat issues at all. I love it.

    I used to keep two SR MBPs (one was a replacement from APPLE) for a week, and the bottom for both were super hot (at least 140F), which seems to be normal to MBP. Now the Penryn one runs much cooler, and you do feel the difference from the bottom which is not burning hot anymore. The avg temp is between 100-120F - great improvement!!!

    It didn't though...the MBP (penryn) slaughtered the MB.

    the santa rosas should be the same, if not worse, as the other ones - they are 65nm chips just like the 2,16ghz chips
