What’s your guess? If you accidentally open every application on your Macbook Pro at one time, will it crash or can it handle the load? It’s running 10.4.10 with 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 3 GB of DDR2 SDRAM. After 12 minutes of churning along and in internal temp of over 160 degrees F, this is what happened…[…] Thanks to jefseb for providing this nice story on Digg.
What other users say about this:
TheBrain21: This was on Facebook AGES ago
condormcs: i’d try it on Ubuntu, but i’m afraid it doesn’t have any programs….
jefseb: Just because your seeing finder windows, a lot of the apps are opened without any new document appearing…like photoshop. So, not every app has a window open. Only the dock icons count.
ThreeDee912: Accidentally? How do you accidentally open all the apps on your Mac? Even if you did, you could just force quit many of them before they completely startup.
ElPachuco: Check out this guys Mac Pro. He tries max out the cpu at 4 minutes in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06_IPNnziqI
Shenaniganz08: Yawn I can do this on a windows xp system too
gcodori: It opens them the same as any other C2D laptop…just twice as EXPENSIVE.
stankinaz: forget mac for get PCs . . . . It all about intel. It’s too bad that it took apple a long time to realize the beauty of intel. And there is nothing ironic about this. PC people have known about intel’s dominance in performance for years, especially what apple was using years ago – what apple used before intel was strictly garbage. Humble PC people knew this too.
rodo1532: the icons panel freaks me out
fotodevil: Apparently a lot better than my Dell Inspiron 6000 (my work computer) is handling having IE, Firefox, and Yahoo Messenger open at once. I’m about to throw this computer at the wall.
