Red Sweater Blog has posted a slew of articles about issues with the MacBook Pro.  I had to send my MBP to Apple for a repair because of a loud inverter hum and absurdly high heat generation, but they replaced the temperature sensors, inverter and (so far) everything is running well.

I’ve become a bit fixated on the MacBook Pro noise issues that are plaguing many early adopters of these new machines. This page serves as a centralized organization point for the various posts I have made on the subject, as well as links to a couple programs I’ve developed to explore and alleviate the “CPU whine” issue in particular.Blog entries in chronological order:

1. All Work and No Play Makes a Quiet MacBook Pro
2. MacBook Pro Noise Update
3. MacBook Pro Noise: I Belive in Miracles
4. Entry announcing this summary page
5. MacBook Pro Noise: Battery Life Tests
6. MacBook Pro: The Whining User
