Apple "It's not that I despise Apple or the wonderful products it showcases year after year, but the fact that almost every first generation Apple product has serious quality assurance issues bugs me beyond belief. Let's take a look at two of Apple's most successful products, the company's portable music player and its notebook series."

I am sure somewhere, some engineer, motherboard designer, manufacturer, etc decreed that that was the correct amount of grease to apply

And that person is apparently less competent, when it comes to assembling PCs, than your run-of-the-mill geek DIYer.

which may or not be the correct amount in the eyes of posters to this or other websites or other manufacturers.

There are only two explanations I can think of that would make the amount of thermal paste correct. First, they confused the processes of installing a heatsink with the process of icing a cupcake. Or second, perhaps they thought the core duo might get too cold, so they made sure there's enough thermal paste to act as insulation.
