I currently have a 8,2. I7 based MBP. Radeon GFX. Purchased last year. It constantly runs hot, fans go between 3500-6000 rpm. GPU throttling kicks in in Clamshell mode with Thunderbolt display. I want to throw it in the bin I'm so pissed. Can anyone recommend a MBP that is. - Matte screen - Dead quiet and doesn't overheat - Never has CPU or GPU throttling and always fast. Does this exist? I cannot for the life of me think why Apple doesn't undervolt/underclock these things. Throttling is far worse than 10% less clock in terms of performance. I should add FWIW: I've had Apple look at it. They find it's "in spec". Thermal paste re-applied etc. My previous MBP (2008) was also hot and noisy. It's just bad engineering decisions.
