i actually know of very few who'd buy either of those brands for good reasons. But if you don't believe me, do some googling, it won't take you long to find out overheating issues are most certainly a commonology in macbook pro designs, and yes even those other systems you mention. and yes, an a bug like one in wow helps trigger that bug, it's still not the underlining cause of the overheat. the only thing it's cause for is just being lousy code that makes the game run badly and far more demanding then it should be. but i'll leave at that.
I've said what i wanted to say. If you want to blame blizzard for it, and not actually fix anything, that's really your loss in not taking advantage of tools that have been successful, against APPLE in getting replacement hardware or repairs for these kinds of issues. Although you'd have to actually be overheating and damaging something for that. If you're just running hot and are upset over some fan noise under heavy load, apple will even tell you it's working as intended and send you home.

I'm sorry you feel that way. Hopefully for your sake, you see the light before you actually do damage computer and bark up wrong tree to get it fixed and end up very disapointed in the end.
I only want to see users get the right information so they can get the right help from the right people. I never look to cause diagreements, but i will correct users that are wrong so that other users who do come here for right information can get that information. Many users in this thread report results but very few understand basic hardware and software interaction and design. They only go by what they know: 4.x, cool and smooth, 5.x, hot and laggy. But they don't always know the difference between the divide of software's responsbilities and hardwares responsiblities. The limitations of software and what it's responsible for, and what the hardware, kernel, drivers, are all supposed to do.
You see it a lot, not just with overheating but when wow causes x kernel panic, etc. Actually, software itself cannot cause a kernel panic unless it's kernel level software like a kext, if wow triggers a kernel panic, it does it by proxy, (ie triggering a bug in OS that actually causes the panic, like a video driver). that is just another such example though where blizz, or other companies, catch a lot of flack when something is broken, that is NOT there fault, but is discovered because of their software.
but then it'd take away from your fun disecting it.09/05/2012 05:44 PMPosted by TiapriestessOy Omegal....for the love of all that's holy, please fix your enter key. :P
