Now, I remember the first Core Duo Macbook Pros, when this excessive heat which we now find "normal" was new, Apple released a silent revision to their internals in order to have it run cooler. I suspect that with temperatures now hitting above 100C, there might be another outcry about this (as it should be... I want my laptops back). Question is, after the nVidia fiasco which apparently never got properly solved, what are the odds of Apple releasing a revision to combat this? I've heard that the only heat management updates recently only made the fans spin slower, to keep the computers quiet, ignoring the heat.
