To quote the article, "They said the chassis was hot to the touch, at about 102 degrees Celsius."Celsius = Centigrade, as you know.

The 2.66GHz Core i7 is a $200 BTO option for the 17" MBP, has been since they were updated a couple weeks ago.

Am I being a bit thick here!  I thought water generally boils at 100 Centigrade.This refers to 102 Fahrenheit which is about 39 Centigrade, and nowhere near enough to boil water!!!

It's hard to believe a story when those running the tests aren't even sure what product they're testing in the first place.  Sounds like they ran the story prematurely for the hits/attention it would bring in.

I know Apple's only been pushing the I7 on the 15", it's pretty straightforward getting a 17" with the I7.

1. Go to Apple.com

2. Click on Shop

3. Click on MacBook Pro

4. Click Select under 17"

5. Click the radio button next to 2.66GHz Intel Core i7

6. Click Add to Cart

You are aware that the 17" MacBook Pro is available with an i7 as a custom configuration option, right?
