macbook running hot temperature cuz of thermal grease

I love the look of the new black MacBooks. The best looking mac ever was the Pismo Powerbook. It was black and had nice subtle sexy curves to it. I still use my ol’ Pismo to check email. The highest end MacBook is now available in black. This is the first time an Apple laptop has been offered in black since the good ol’ days of the Pismo.

Yet, the funny thing is that the new MacBooks are running quite hot. Seems as though Apple has been putting too much thermal grease in the machines. Thermal grease. that’s funny.

There’s some funny comments on the macnn forums about this problem like: “I’m not gonna order a MacBook sandwich until Apple figures out that it’s putting too much mayo on it.”
