I know they aren't called laptops any longer and rather notebook PCs, however, I spend 3 hours per day commuting on train. I need to remain productive so I use my laptop on my lap with my Verizon Wireless Aircard for connectivity. My laptop gets so hot and with the warmer weather its becoming unbearable to continue to work, especially in the afternoon on the way home. I have been keeping my PC on the maximize battery settings so it uses less CPU, etc -- if I kept it on the high I would be in worse shape. I also keep a few legal pads between the laptop and my lap but that doesn't seem to help as the heat transfers right through. Any suggestions on what I can do? Not that it probably makes a difference but I am using a Lenovo T61/Z61t. Thank you!
