I know you should not need what I’m about to say, especially for a expensive laptop but compressed air in a can, turn it upside down and spray the bottom…. wow, it gets cool fast! I believe its compressed nitrogen or something like that so when you turn it upside down you get liquid coming out not air. :bigevilgrin:

Pretty sure they’re not made to run in antarctica level conditions, but I’d love to see someone build a nitrogen cooled macbook.

Well, Im not poring nitrogen on it, but its enough to cool down the body and in result cool down the inside.

Would be a core 2 duo – wouldn’t be surprised if he’s getting 200 fahrenheit.

Also, one more thing that annoys me is not something wrong with the macbook – web developers! I used to think “Who cares about sticking to a 960 or 1000 grid? Pointless, everyone has a higher resolution!” And yes, I do have 1440×900, however I like to keep my browser window at 1024 (Default width) because I feel more comfortable having all that white space (or I guess you’d call it “galaxy space since I have the default ML wallpaper) around my browser.

Also starting to hate 11 pixel fonts. It’s bearable but when I go to a site and the main content is 11 pixels, I can’t read it from a “laptop” viewing distance. Every web developer should have a laptop so they can understand the frustrations and SOLVE the problems.

Thats a point i was gonna ask other devs, i always used to use 11px and lately been upping it to 12px. Wonder what the average recommended at least for clarity is.

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/10/07/16-pixels-body-copy-anything-less-costly-mistake/ although I find 16px too small as well, but at least that’s something.

12 is okay for meta, 13 is good for say a menu, and for main content (say, content on a blog) I really recommend 15 or 16. This is the best in my opinion.
