    I know this has been discussed here forever, but I couldn't find a definitive answer - which runs hotter, the 1.1 or 1.3 rMB?

    I doubt anybody has both to give you a definitive reply.

    1.1 is fine.

    They both have the same thermal limits (95*c).
    They will both hit the limit when pushed to the max..

    So under cpu load they should be equal.

    Idle the 1.3 MAY be a little bit cooler because it's configured @5.25w versus 6w for the 1.1. But not even sure this will be noticeable.

    My understanding is the 1.3 CPU should run cooler. But that also depends on the OS and from what has been posted I don't think Apple is getting the differentiation that should exists for the differences in the price of 1.1 to 1.3.
