Yes, the area to the left of the trackerpad gets warm... but the battery is on the right hand side - on my G4 anyway! I 'think' the hard disc is on the left - which is why there are a series of vents on the side - to aid cooling. The 'twitching' could be from the angle you hold your wrist when using the keypad - I 'float' my hands over this area rather than rest them on the ibook itself - I also float them because I know someone else who rests on the ibook and after a while you get two shiny/darker areas which spoils the surface (purely cosmetic I know!)...

Correct, the Hard Drive is on the Left. It gets a bit warm but has NEVER bothered me in anyway using it for hours. The side with the battery (The Right Side) is very cold on my iBook 1.33Ghz.
