    Decent review, though more of a review of his experience as a PC user using a Mac.

    He seems to be unaware of Apple's passive cooling and doesn't understand that it's not overheating if it's still running. If it were overheating then it would power itself off.

    Still, a pretty fair review.

    Indeed. Playing games chassis gets a bit hot but when you check the GPU/CPU temperatures they are in range of 50 - 60 degree C. That is far from overheating.

    Agreed, and I've never had the chassis hot to the touch at all. Although my ambient temperature in Ireland is lower than for most others.

    Ambient temperature can make a big difference. I usually keep my house around 77 in the summertime. One time I cooled the house to about 65 and my mac mini performed better on FCPX.

    I doubt it affects the nMP as much, where most users can hardly get the fan speed to rise even under heavy load.
