Alright, so I think this is a fairly common problem with apple products that have closed in fans: I have a 2012/13 Mac Book Pro 15" that I got 5 months ago with the following specifications:
- Processor: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7
- Memory : 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
- Graphics : NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
- Software : OS X 10.9.1 (Mavericks)
I mainly use the system for programming, email and other work/school related projects.
My main problem/concern with it is how hot it gets right above the function keys and on the bottom of the computer. I have tried cooling pads & fans but they don't seem to make much of a difference by any means. I don't have excessive processes running either, for the most part I'll have a text editor, terminal and a web browser running.
Does anyone have solutions? And is it odd to see this happening with such a relatively new system?
