How about temperature and increased video memory?

    I actually have 2 questions:

    - Is the new Penryn MBP any less hot? And more enjoyable when working with it on your lap?

    - Does the increased video memory have an impact? And if so, on what apps or what tasks?

    The Penryn MBP is my first, but from what people say it is cooler. As for the Video card, I'm assuming the vram increase will add maybe 10% or so to performance, depending on your resolution.

    I was running world of warcraft on the mbp penryn. The fan starts up immediately upon loading the game. Soon after, my lap was burning;p so I had to put a thick book under it.
