Whats the point of calling a laptop a laptop when your meant to put it on a hard surface and not on anything soft (like your lap), you might as well call it a small desktop heater thing because all they mostly do is overheat then break, you might as well get a desktop.

You would have a hard time taking a desktop with you on a business trip. Or any other time you need portability. Maybe you could drag a small generator along with you, but then there's the gas and oil for it etc. Better to use a laptop and warm your lap a little. Might even feel good on a chilly night.

I know that, i'm not saying take a desktop on a business trip, i saying that other people always say put the laptop on a flat hard surface so that it doesn't overheat, most old laptops have problems of having a hot bottom that makes you legs uncomfortable, the point of having portable computers is to take it anywhere, not to keep it on a table like a desktop.
Don't know if that confused you.

I often use a laptop on my lap. I guess I'm just odd that way.

If you don't like laptops, don't buy them. Simple.

I'm not saying that i don't like laptops, I'm saying that people say that your not meant to put laptops on your lap, like in my laptops manual it says 'DO NOT leave the notebook PC on your LAP or any part of the body to prevent discomfort or injury from heat exposure', that eliminates the point of a LAPTOP, thats what i'm trying to say.

I'm not confused at all. I think they were given the name laptop because years ago most people did use them on their lap. Heat was always a problem, but in the new thin laptops with ssd drives it seems they're getting away from the heat issue. Most people don't stay on a laptop for hours at a time. They have improved a lot with the new generation of machines.

Yea i suppose even though most of the heat is generated through the CPU and GPU and the chipset gets quite hot, they should of put thermal reflectors inside the laptop on the plastic to reflect the heat back into the laptop then the fan could suck the hot air out.

Never had a laptop of mine that hot. Guess you could use some power/throttling settings to cool it off.

Hang up and live.

Na the laptop i got for christmas never gets hot, mostly older ones get hot, some of my Stepdad's family and friends wanted me to sort out there laptops, two of those compaq ones, not the old ones, the ones that came out in like 2008, those got hot enough to be uncomfortable, got an old asus x53 to sort out, got hot at the bottom but it had the cover that could expose the CPU, GPU and other components, changed the thermal paste, saw the GPU had hardly any if non ,thermal compound, got some put it on, improved the temps abit.

How terribly confusing. I sympathize with you. How about we instead call them Notebook computers? That way you can get back to being irritated by hot dogs coming 10 to a package while the buns are 8 to a package.

"...being irritated by hot dogs coming 10 to a package while the buns are 8 to a package."

Well, they finally caught on. Now hot dogs are generally 8 to a pack. Of course the price is the same as it was when they were 10 to a pack...

I wouldn't suggest eating any meat products cold unless they are precooked. You would have to check the label on the packaging.

Grilling on the back of a notebook reminded me of that book, Manifold Destiny, about cooking dinner on your car engine so it's done by the time you get to wherever you're going.

Unless you crash, then it will be mashed, cut and flavored for you.

We used to heat our lunches on our engines on the job site. For a good while cold sandwiches were a thing of the past. I've reheated a great deal of pizza that way too.

Apparently, cooking on a car engine was popular years ago, and it still is (but probably not quite as much):

Probably not as practical nowadays with all the crap they're mounting on engines and the smaller cars they're cramming them into. A 1960 Ford pickup would likely accomodate a 5 course meal.
