This site will help collect and show the temperatures of Apple Macintosh computers using the new processors by Intel. All new computers that haven't faced the trail of time will have problems and issues that can make users mad and furious. As with the new MacBook Pro machines where were, and still are, problems with heat dissipation. After scouting forums and help sites for information about what temperatures I can expect on a new MacBook, but that turned out to be harder and more scattered than I first imagined. That's the main motive behind this site and it didn't take too long to setup as I had the base code handy from another site. -

Hi - sorry I have not filled in your form. My 14" ibook broke - 1 month after warranty ran out - looked at by mac rep who said logic board warped - due to overheating. Cost to repair - almost as much as ibook cost. (Said had we kept it near radiator. No!) Never had any warnings. Looking at macbooks in store - they all run hot compared to other laptops. Is apple just ignoring this problem? Would be grateful for any help.
