Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2006 11:22 AM (in response to Mauro)Just got my MBP 17" last week. Over all - sweet. No known problems, however found out about heat and whine. High pitched whine, working on getting rid of it. Interesting to say the least.
Heat - CoreDuoTemp reports 63C at 10% usage, will see about ramping that up to more usage (specInt tests or something)

Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2006 2:39 PM (in response to Mauro)Hi all,
I have had the heat issue as well, even though I have had my MacBook Pro sitting on one of those things that elevate the back so there is air flow underneath it.
I called Apple Care and they were really nice, walked me through a number of tests and told me the computer was fine. Like I have seen on a few other posts, they told me that it was never meant to sit on your lap (I have never used it on my lap, my concern about the heat was/is that there will be damage to the computer). Anyway, at least it is on the record that I called in about the heat.
All that being said, I want to update the firmware like I see some of you did but when I try it tells me that it is not for my computer.... I don't remember the exact message but it wasn't "your computer is already up to date". Maybe I was not using the correct URL.
Anyone else have this problem?
