(This is someone's sense of humor)

This is what the G5 laptop might look like.

Your creator missed the massive cooling grates on each side, and the 3" heat-dissapating foam pad for the lap that ships standard with that configuration.

So where is the humor, looks like the usual Pentium4 laptop, but a bit more elegant.

I'd really like a laptop like this. One with a bit of guts. A bit more powerful than your average wimpy laptop.

actually, if you try the current 17" 1.33ghz powerbook, i think you'll discover it's anything but wimpy...

I think the model shown should incorporate a small egg-frying module just to the left of the touchpad.

Well, if it's anything like my 12" PowerBook...

Yes.. my brother has a 12" powerbook.. Jeeeeeeez!! they run hot!!

My 15" 1 Ghz tibook wich is faster than his 12" does not even come close to his temperature!

I first called applesupport to ask if it was normal that it run that hot.. so we started a discussion :D how hot is hot..

- well worrying hot..

you mean like burning hot? or just hot

- no! not burning hot, but hot enought to slowly burn your lap after 2 hours!

oh.. yes.. that's normal.. don't put it on your lap..

- so why is it a 'lap'top then?

Well it isn't.. it is a powerbook..

- "click" :rolleyes:

Actually, Windows laptops drain more power and get much hotter than Mac laptops. That's why the batteries on Windows laptops don't last as long.

These laptops become so scorching hot, that one man was reported to have severely burned his "dongle" on one (see link below).

WARNING: Before you click on this link, be warned that there are graphic medical descriptions of the male anatomy that was burned to a crisp by the laptop computer:

Hmm yep.. I remember that story.. funny story..

I know Wintel laptops run hotter.. therefore it was a surprise for me that this 12" was that hot!

but hey.. the applesupports guy convinced me of it being very very normal.. :rolleyes:
