MacBook core i7 : a real powerfull laptop or a sadly build toy ?

This doesn't match my experience at all.

I have a 15" i7 MacBook Pro with a solid state drive as my primary computer running lots of programs at once. I'm routinely using multiple cores and I don't have any heat problems. In fact, I have in on a base with a fan and it runs so cool I don't even have the fans running. This is the quietest and coolest Mac laptop I've had in a long time. The solid state drive is eerily quiet and I'm guessing one of the reasons it is running so cool.

This isn't a server but I run it pretty hard.

The bad thing in them was the construction quality - one time good (as the best of alls : PWB G4 12" 1 Ghz), one time sadly bad (as the sadest of all : PWB 5300 cs, three time rebuild to new by Apple).

Instead of letting the processors fans turns all the day at 6000 t/mn as soon as 3 virtual cores are at work, the best to do is to switch to a more seriously build 720-i7 PC laptop (height virtual cores) able to run at 100% of its available power without becoming too hot even after months (i'm very happy with my ASUS 14" i payed half the price of the MBP).
