    too bad many notebooks have been doing it for years. Dell, for example, has used it since the P3 days.

    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.

    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.

    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 highly doubt it. more likely, a dual-core G4 will make it into the Powerbook, methinks.
