I have a trouble. My MBP 15' i7 core +SSD is overheating when I am working under bootcamp in Windows 7.
So, I am planning to change it.
For me mac+windows - is necessary.

So, could you tell me, which mac is "colder" (don't becoming crazy hot)/longer battery life when working with win7 office work/gaming:
macbook air 13' 1.86 Ghz
macbook air 13' 2.13 Ghz
macbook pro 13' 2.4 Ghz C2D + SSD
macbook pro 15' 2.4 Ghz i5 + SSD

Could you please test the temperature with a program "XRG Resource´╗┐ Graph" or "iStat"?

I don't have all of the MacBooks at my disposal for testing (I wish I did!), but you may not need a new one. I would try some techniques for keeping the MacBook Pro cool when running Boot Camp.

Here, there are a few suggestions we've collected. These generally talk about Vista (because they're from last year), but they should work with Windows 7:

Let us know if any of these works.

Yes, I tried some of theese variants. But, understand, that it would be better to take another, less powerful.
And now I only want to understand, which of macbooks is cooler under bootcamp win7.
Maybe, as admin, you could collect opinions from members which have theese notebooks.
It will be really useful information!

We need to know for work/ playing next statistics:
1. What the temperature CPU/GPU + pick temperature
2. How noisy are fans
3. How hot becomes unibody during the office work/during game playing

Will appreciate your help.
