Apple MacBook Pro with Core 2 Duo runs a lot cooler

Posted on Friday, November 03 2006 @ 03:17:19 CET by

ZD Net reports the new MacBook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo processors run much cooler than the previous MacBook Pro notebooks:
My Core Duo MacBook Pro 2.0GHz (2GB RAM and 160GB hard drive) would frequently reach temperatures of 162° Fahrenheit after running for more than an hour. It would become so hot that it required me to run Fan Control 1.1 if I needed to use my machine anywhere near my lap.

I've been using a new Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro 2.33GHz for over four hours straight (10+ hours on and off) and the temperature hasn't gone higher than 122° Fahrenheit (average is around 115° F) according to CoreDuoTemp - a drop of more than 40° Fahrenheit without using software like Fan Control.
