Apple Identifies and Fixes Thermal Bug in New MacBook Pro | The Loop

Jim Dalrymple on The Loop:

Last week a video appeared on the Web from David Lee showing how the new MacBook Pro would throttle down speeds when it got hot under processor loads. Apple told me that the issue Lee was experiencing has been identified and is being fixed today.

I saw lots of talk around this issue last week, and it bummed me out. I’m glad it was fixed so soon, because these are exactly the type of problems professionals don’t want to deal with. My friend TJ Draper says every Apple laptop he’s ever had, has had thermal issues. While I don’t share the same experience, I do often worry what the cost of an increasingly smaller body for professional machines will be.
