    Heat Issues?
    Hi all,

    I am going to be purchasing my first mac (macbook pro I think) in a few days and I wanted to know how do the apple laptops do with heating? I had a HP laptop once and the heat was unbearable after a half hour of basic usage...

    Well, it gets warm as any notebook will. You won't want to leave it sitting on your bare legs for an extended period. It does fine for me since I wear jeans all the time. If you get into playing a game, or something else that kicks the video card into high gear, you will want some type of lap stand. I use the iLap. You can get it cheaper from newegg or amazon.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Macbook's and Macbook Pro's are not known for staying cool to the touch.

    I'm not sure how warm your HP got, but I was assume a Macbook would get just as warm, if not warmer.

    There are few 'laptops' for sale now.

    Apple only sell 'notebooks' which are not supposed to go on your lap.
