    Specs:
    13" MacBook
    powerbook 15" heat
    I was wondering if the 15" powerbook gets hot in the same place as the 12" ibook does? i'm gonna sell my 12" ibook and get a powerbook and was wondering if it also gets hot on the left side of the mouse pad and underneath when it's on your lap?

    Isn't it like that for all laptops, even PCs? I mean, my Dell Inspiron 600m gets pretty hot too, and in the same places as you mentioned. I'm not an expert or anything, but I'm guessing it's hard to get around that when you're making something so thin. Does that make sense? (Sorry, I have no experience with Macs to relate your problem to as I am still waiting to get my PB.)

    yeah it gets hottest when its recharging and using intensive stuff. and I don't think it gets very warm on top, just the hinge like you mentioned, but you aren't touching that.

    yeah, i agree, you arn't touching the top by the hinge so you really don't have to worry about it.
