    SO this is why they brought out a black one

    Well worth the extra wedge for this built-in hob

    Re: Cooking with your MacBook

    Personally I think thats a bit daft

    Price of Mac Book ( aprox £700 )
    Price of an egg ( A few £ at most )

    Look on the guys face when the oil / egg juices run down the heat exhausts on the back of the mac book ( Priceless )

    Im sure the electronics would enjoy all of that greasy fat

    Re: Cooking with your MacBook

    I can indeed confirm that these things run very hot-- but mostly when plugged in to the mains. When charging my MBP last night it was running at 74 degrees C. It was hot. But then the temperature was up last night anyway- and I was listening to a podcast whilst surfing and downloading SP2 for my Parallels install of XP Pro. So it wasn't that bad. Took charger out after it finished and within 30 minutes the MBP was down to 39C. Cool.

    If you read the guy's site he explains that it is in fact a joke- he used tin foil for the egg by the way ;-) And as someone points out, you can cook an egg between 50-55 C...doesn't have to be too hot to get a nice tasty eggling out of that now, does it? And my Dell Inspiron 510m could beat that when charging my lap can tell ya!!

    Yum.
