core i7 hot

Not everybody out there can afford a 17-inch Core i7 MacBook Pro, but the folks over at PC Authority have got their hands on a unit, and it seems that they managed to get the CPU to temperatures of about 101 degrees when benchmarking it using Cinebench. Apparently errors started to appear due to the high temperatures and they needed to turn the MacBook Pro on its side in order to complete the tests. Granted most people wouldn’t be pushing the 17-inch MacBook Pro to its limits all the time, but it’ll be interesting to see if everyday use, and not benchmarking, will be able to push the MacBook Pro to such limits. Have you noticed any heat issues on your latest MacBook Pros?
