1. Go to About this mac under the apple in the upper left and click on More info 2.

There's a kernel_task fix. I'll post it shortly.
My understanding has always been that the MBP shouldn't be run with its lid closed. Heat issues, etc. 
Apple has a way of knowing what consumers way before even they do. All they need to do is show the goods.
Why would consumers who made a conscious decision against choosing Microsoft hardware turn around and trade in their Mac for it?   Well all had a choice.
How about the fight QFT. Very well said. 
 Right? I don't get it, though. Maybe I'm just not paying attention. Which would mean I've been ignorant about how every available version of OS X that I have installed on this machine has been running since October 2008 (once the unibodies were released, I figured I could get a deal on the previous model, and I did.)  I just never really had any complaints worth writing (ranting?) about, from Leopard to Mavericks. Everything always more or less performed as expected and...
Still amazes me how well my early 2008 MBP runs this OS. Granted, I upgraded the RAM to 6GB back in 2009, but still... And I expect that it'll run Yosemite just as well, if the first beta is anything by which to judge.
It's a low-end iMac for ~$1000. It's an entry point into the Apple ecosystem that will last the *casual* user quite a long time. Entry level iMac is entry-level iMac.    It is an iMac (well-made, well-designed), and it is a platform from which to enjoy the Apple ecosystem. Seems a perfectly reasonable price for what it is and for all you're getting. This isn't some OEM junk-PC with the latest awful version of Windows. 
So . . . another device from Amazon that will do as badly as their *other* device?   At least change the entire game. The market has seen Amazon's first effort. At this point their second one needs to put a man on one of Saturn's moons.    Yesterday.
