Intel has gotten a lot better over the years, yea. I remember when I really hated them though, back when they were fooling around with the Duo Core and Pentium shit and they sucked. They still run pretty hot in laptops though, unless your system has excellent cooling (thank you, Asus). Though even still, you're gonna be rocking around 50-55C idle. It only gets worse if your ambient temp is all fucked up... Right, Aeth?
