Hello, i'm a new macbook pro user. I notice the bottom gets very on the previous macbook pro.. i'm using a 15inch macbook pro 2.2ghz 320gb 7200rm 128mb nvidia. i notice it got hot on the bottom of the macbook pro on both the standard 5400rpm and my new 7200rpm hard drive. So heres my two questions.

1. Is there a case out that can be used to make it bareable to use your laptop in your lap after a while when it gets hot (either models)
2. does the bottom of the macbook pro on the new late 2008 (unibody?) macbook pros have this heat issue too??

They all get warm on the bottom. I bought a Griffin Elevator stand for my machine which seems to keep it fairly cool. You can buy it at your local Apple store or here.

Regards.
