    Especially the bottom of the "macbook pro" name is very cool to touch... I just love the palm rest and even the left speaker grills are freaking cool to touch with heavy multitasking and even on my lap! :D:D

    And montevina will run a bit cooler than this! and especially future chipsets! :eek:

    CPU A is running around 46-52(max) that I've seen so far.

    But the top casing is just so damn cool to touch all around. I remember the merom mbp that I owned got so hot/warm that my palms always sweated or felt so uncomfortable (felt like a dominos heatwave box on my lap).

    Now I can feel the aluminum without any heat interfering the experience.

    I really loved the mac pro.. it ran cool as well compared to the older generation (didnt heat up my room).

    BUT I want to use 1 machine and the mbp is more than enough for what I do and rather just pocket the money for a rainy day.

    17" hi res mbp is more than worth every penny! :D:D

    Dont get me wrong the mac pro is an awesome machine for the money as well! Its such a beast. But I only tapped 8-15% of its cpu power at best and only 4-6gb of ram as well out of 16gb that I had.. Plus I have a softspot for portables.
