You're likely to find the same problem in laptops from every manufacturer, it's not an Apple thing.

Yeah this is from an Apple service manual. That explains a lot.

This explains why Apple is so expensive.

Good lord... Step 1: load your thermal compound into your caulking gun. Step 2: apply liberally. Don't be shy. Pile that **** on there!

Are those green squares not the entire part? That looks about right to me.

Laptops use a rectangle shaped thermal conductor. It's supposed to be rectangular and limited to a relatively small area. The way Apple's paste was applied has a gross amount of excess paste outside the normal contact area.

Examples of better pasting:
T61 (what it's supposed to look like): http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T61-and-prior-T-series-ThinkPad/T61-and-T61p-fan-and-heatsink-thermal-grease-and-thermal-pads/ta-p/394627

T41 (how it's applied): http://www.blogster.com/media/albums/users/l/a/p/laptoppartstore/lenovo-thinkpad-t43/.view/thinkpad-t43-fan-14.jpg

That is just...... Horrible. I don't even know what to say besides that. I am at a loss for words.
