here's one way they could do it...
most notebooks already do use heatpipes, btw.
sorry, i dont want liquid in my laptop.
seems way to risky.
too bad many notebooks have been doing it for years. Dell, for example, has used it since the P3 days.
i dont use dell
yes, I understand that you are limited in the technology you've used... My point is that this has been used for years in production environments. It is a proven technology.
damn, pants on a little too tight?
well, he's obviously not taken a good look before shooting it down... Heatpipes have been around a long time, and I'd like to see him post a link to a valid complaint about them leaking or bursting.
Dell was one example. Gateway, Toshiba, Asus, Shuttle, and pretty much every other notebook manufacturer use them.
I think IBM uses liquid in their Thinkpads
probably. Anything from the P3 and up generates enough heat to make dissipation difficult without dramatically increasing surface area. That's easy in a desktop -- we just stick a huge heatsink on it. But on a notebook, space is an issue. Actually, I would be more interested to hear what manufacturers do *not* use a heatpipe -- as that's technologically more difficult than using them, now a days.
If Dell can't fuck it up, no one can.
I hate dell about as much as anyone can...
I'll believe it when I see it.
i highly doubt it. more likely, a dual-core G4 will make it into the Powerbook, methinks.
i'd be nice though! but i really doubt it
