    Work on macbook with lid closed?
    Hi! On this page Review: Apple's LED Cinema Display a boon for Mac laptop users it says that Macbooks (the new ones) can be used with their lids closed as long as they are connected to a power source and have an external monitor + usb mouse + usb keyboard.

    It seems strange to me because having the lid closed covers the macbook's vents so how would it evacuate the heat?

    Am I wrong? is it possible to use the macbooks in such a way?
