Comment on "MacBook Hands-On Impressions"
by Scott Stevenson — May 21
The consensus in the Mac underground is that all the heat problems are related to massive quantities of heat grease

I'm very skeptical about this. I saw somebody mention it on the Apple forums, but given the option to believe the people that built the machine or somebody from the internet that I don't know, I'm going to have to go with the engineers.

It is, of course, possible, but I'd personally need to see more evidence.

and that the noise problems are caused by the fan being on too much because of the heat problems

I really don't think the whine is a fan thing.
