i have a g3 ibook and i am thinking about getting a g4 I know the g3's run cool, but i was wondering do the g4's generate more noticable heat.

I have 12.1" G4 too. I don't know if it gets noticeably hotter on bed. Maybe if you leave it there for a long time doing something CPU and/or graphics intensive.

It gets hot under heavy load no matter where it is (well not so hot that it would be uncomfortable to touch). I've noticed that the fan kicks in usually after about 30 min ~ 60 min of 100% CPU usage.

In normal use it stays pretty cool.
