    :rant2: im too excited to get one but i think i'll wait until they fix this issue. oh and i heard that they lowered the price for the intel chips, so i think they'll probably lower the cost of the MBP's or even upgrade them :x:

    i'm pretty sure it will be awhile until they "fix" these issues. i'm sure you know that the heat issue is from badly applied thermal paste, and the whine issue is from the power converter or some shit like that. the fix for that is to open photo booth. the whine magically stops.

    i doubt every single one of them gets super hot and whines. you just don't hear about the thousands that work perfectly because nobody reports shit like that. :rolleyes:

    mine does both :hs:

    heat isn't that much of an issue when on battery power, however.
