Well, Apple is price competitive if you compare apples to apples, so to speak. Apple's prices are very competitive with comparable offerings from Dell, HP, Lenovo.? But it's true that Apple doesn't do low end.? Netbooks can't deliver the user experience that Apple wants to deliver -- and the fact that hackintoshed netbooks are favorably compared to Apple's state of the art 4 generations back is proof of that. :)

I had already done this and no response. One way to test is to first
disable the firewall altogether and see if it was the culprit. If so,
then work back from there.

So they do run hot under load.? The lower base fan speeds make a noticeable difference in battery life and noise level -- the two reasons Apple does it that way.

Just as a data point, I'm currently running a video encode on my MacBook Pro (Early 2008/Penryn).? iStat Pro says that the CPU temp is 78C.? The maximum operating temperature for the CPU is 95C so that's well within tolerances.

Apple uses a lot more metal than other manufacturers in the casings (even in the polycarbonate-hulled MacBooks) and all that metal draws a lot of heat away from the main board.? This is good because radiant cooling of the electronics is cheaper than running fans, but it does mean that MacBooks are warmer to the touch than the competition.
