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.

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.
