I did have a look around ebay usa and found heatsinks that were even more expensive up to $150 for large ones......perhaps aluminum is more expensive this side of the atlantic ???.

The company I linked to has a 2 inch heigh extrusion but the price jumps to $98 for the size that would fit the bottom of the Macbook.

The way I see it.....New iMac 27" with good specs (SSD & Ram) $2500 +- or a $100 heatsink for a perfectly good 17" i7 Macbook Pro.

I will search around some more before I commit......thanks for all your help Tomas!

The Alesis air fx seems really wicked, kinda reminds me my v-synth D Beam. Thanks for sharing.

I was browsing this topic a little bit and noticed Mozart was mentioned. It's nice there is some appreciation for him here.

I was recently reminded of Mozart's genius when I listened to the last movement from his last symphony (no. 41 "Jupiter").
This is a terrific recording along with some very nice visuals.

Listen to the whole thing and prepare for a completely extraordinary moment near the end. You'll know it when you hear it.
I recommend headphones and watching along with the visuals in full screen. :)

Mozart, Symphony 41, Jupiter, 4th mvt. (shapes)

I did find an extruded aluminum heat sink company here in the usa...http://www.heatsinkusa.com/10-000/ A 10" x 15" x 1" piece will run around $53.


That´s very expensive….also 1" isn´t really enough to get the heat away

I bought mine used on Ebay here in Germany - there were a lot of offers! Maybe ebay USA is the place to check….

Do you put anything between the heatsink and the computer to prevent metal on metal scratching.  I release direct contact is vital for heat transference.

No i don´t have something between haven´t problems with scratches too as the body of those heatsink´s usually are flat. I did bought a 2nd one (another company) for my Mac Mini and it was also totally flat.

Greetings,
Tomas

Cooling pad update......well for one thing the fan on this Zalman cooling pad is so quiet I had to hold the unit up to the light to check if it was on or off.  It is a single 6" fan that does move a lot of air.

Improvement.....not enough for my use.  I do believe it will extend the life of the the macbook and I have not had any hair dryer episodes so this is better but not what I am looking for more.

I am coming to release the laptop is not the best studio computer....perhaps if you perform and you want one computer it will surface but as a quite solution...not the best for audio.

I used to work with the queen of psycho women up until a few weeks ago, trust me, if you aren't real friends with this person, stay out of it, don't talk about it with them, just pretend nothing has changed.

Things in life have a way of working themselves out.

A coworker advised to only make an effort if this is genuinely somebody I care about.  I can't say that about this person because all there is is small talk and tv and movies discussions.  I feel like if my conscience is clear that I didn't do or say anything to warrant this situation, then the other person is choosing to behave this way based on their own issues.  Maybe I just need to suck it up and take it like a man.
