    Default Do all MBP 2011 Have heat issue

    Hello Guys

    How is everyone doing?

    I have bought a MBP 2011 15 inch 2.2 ghz i7 quad core , I live outsite the US and asked my aunt who lives there to buy it for me. But I saw alot of people complaining about having heat issues and system frizzing specially when they run games or video edit.

    I was wondering
    1) Does that probelm exits or is it just some people who want to make a big deal out of it?
    2) If it exits , do all the macbooks 2011 have that issue? or there were just a few unlucky ppl?

    3) Would runing Skype video call and maybe playing some youtube videos be enough to see if my macbook pro has that issue before she shipps it to me? coz if it has that problem I'd return it now coz posting it back to the states and getting a new one shipped agoan would cost alot of money

    Many Thanks in advance and apogize my bad englsih

    I haven't used the 2011 MBP but i do have a 2010 MBP. I used to think that it was because i got the 7200 RPM HDD instead of the 5400 RPM that my computer ran a little hot but i think its just a MBP thing. Of course the more CPU and GPU intensive the application is the harder the computer is going to work, which means it will produce more heat and the fans will be a bit louder. The only place that my computer actually gets hot when i do video editing or anything CPU intensive right above the keyboard(granted i dont use it on my lap very often it can get quite warm on the bottom too) It definitely doesn't help that the computer casing is made of metal but most of the problems can be fixed with an application called smcFanControl. It gives you control over your fans so that you can have them kick in a little sooner or spin even faster to keep your computer cooler. One last thing, I think that apple is just playing it safe with graphics because there was a recall with some 2010 MBP's because of a GPU failure issue(although i heard it wasn't very many)

    Hope this helped
