How badly does it throttle?
I’m also wondering if the damn keyboard works where do you spend all that money to use it as a paperweight.
I can only imagine it would be difficult to remove heat from such a thin case without ramping up the fan speed. I hope Apple is finally using some good thermal paste and well-designed heat pipes. If the device is just going to thermal throttle, then there’s very little point in it having a high-end processor. I rather dislike the idea of users spending plenty of money and not getting their full value out of the MacBook Pro. Good luck to those who are fortunate enough to afford one.
