Shocking: Student banned from college classes for Intel Core i7

This is truly shocking. A student was banned by two professors from classes because his $1099 Intel Core i7 notebook overheats and makes a lot of noise. It seems that Intel's 32nm has fusion technology too -- thermally.

See also, Core i7 MacBook Pro 2011 overheats to the boiling temp of 92 C when multitasking (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2769886?start=0&tstart=0). It seems Intel's fusion tech is indeed thermal in nature.

i purchased this computer going into my first year of college as a journalism student. i needed a computer with an i7 processor, and chose this one because of its portability compared to other computers with the same specifications. i've never regretted anything more. this computer was the bane of my school year. after spending over 1,000 dollars, i was left with a computer that not only paled in comparison to my old 300 dollar toshiba, but also was completely unusable.
the fan was so noisy that two of my professors banned me from using it in class. and despite all the fan noise, the computer still overheated two or three times a day, despite being on a cooling fan. most of the time, it was too hot to touch when i wasn't running anything more than microsoft word. forget running photo shop or premiere pro like i needed for my classes. this computer was completely useless to me.

What are you trying to say Shiradouche? How is this Intel's fault? There are plenty of i7 laptops out there... this is TOSHIBA's fault you ignorant cunt.

Seriously, you are a fucking cunt.

A lying cunt.

A fraud.

HPs with AMD processor in it are running fine, though

They may be running "just fine" but are generally outsold by Intel by about 5:1....so...

There are DOZENS of HP models that don't have this issue, and DOZENS and DOZENS of other reviews on the same fucking laptop that don't complain of similar issues. Its typical Shiradouche, find anything negative about Intel and publish it. Even if it is from ONE source with no other backup in reality.

He needs something to post after all.

Just like he lies about his PhD, he needs to dig up false data to support AMD.

Wouldn't worry about the ph.d issue - word has it that's about to be addressed in a very serious manner - so this blog won't be around much longer anyway...

Lying about having a PhD tends to get one into a lot of trouble.

Not like Shiradouche matters.

After his whole Intel is going bankrupt thing and keep pushing the date out year after year, no one really takes him seriously.

He is fun to laugh at and its even more fun to slag his fanbois.
