    Macbook Pro heat on old and new MBPs
    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??

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    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.
