I was wondering if anyone know if carbon fiber dissipates heat well enough for a laptop?

Mac Pro Dual 2.8 Quad (2nd gen), 14G Ram, Two DVD-RW Drives, OS X 10.9
Mac Book Pro Core 2 Duo 2.16Ghz, SuperDrive, ATI X1600, 2GB RAM, OS X 10.7
1TB Time Capsule

Most probably.

They use that stuff in race car engine bays.

And let's not forget Acer's little foray into brand name laptops with carbon-fiber components: the Acer Ferrari:



I used to own one of those pre-Apple. Not a bad laptop, and very fast.

Why don't I own Acer any more?



Probably their attention to detail...

If he had his way and still alive, our phones would be single use so we would have to buy a new one every time they ran out of juice.

 

If Edison wasn't in the way, Tesla's inventions would have revolutionized the world and the "World of Tomorrow" that was featured at World Expos would have looked antique compared to his stuff.

Edison's been out of the way for a long time, and Tesla left behind a lot of research.  What's the hold up now?

Perhaps Tesla's stuff is so efficient that corporations would rather keep making money off the old stuff?

Perhaps no one has been able to think enough like Tesla to make his designs usable?

Tons of potential reasons why.

Corbomite not Carbomite.

 

If you're going to be a nerdy geek at least get it right. 1smile.gif

I hope so. Where is this the write up then?
