I just got my ibook and am wondering about the heat of it. Its the 12 inch, i was just wondering if anyone knew, is it going to get to hot if i use it on my bed or on the floor (carpet)? My other laptop had a big fan on the bottom that i couldn't cover, but on this its only on the back and the side, so will i be ok setting it on the bed and carpet? Do these have any overheat shutdown? Thanks in advance

they will get warm on your legs but not unbareable. I use my powerbook which is known to be much hotter on my lap and bed all the time with no problem

I suggest you place something between the iBook, when yoo place on the bed or carpet. Placing it on the bed or a pillow can easily block the vents and some carpets.

I agree with rman, I picked up a cheap lapdesk, with a cushion underneath and a solid surface so there is nothing blocking vents. This way you ensure some good airflow. I always use my laptop at night before bed, so you can just put it on that and not have to worry. The wife reads a book and I surf the net :-)
