    so I'm just curious....I'm not usually one to tamper with many default settings. How likely am I to shorten the lifespan of my fans by playing with this program? :hs:

    if it's for home use, get a lapdesk for it. I picked up one from Chapters of all places for $20. it's got a nice leather-ish top which is the perfect size for my mb and a beanbag fake suede pillow on the bottom which keeps me from roasting my nuts :bigthumb:

    I turn the fan on higher when I have the computer on my lap, then switch back when I'm done...

    For some reason, whenever I see your AV, I think of Ronald McDonald... just when I look quick, must be all the red and yellow...

    i was worried about that. i have a 15" so mine was 50. then i really thought about it. i use a computer most of my day, probably 16-17 hours. my computer at home is always on and i check things as i do other things. or i chat and do homework, regular work. i do a LOT on this thing.

    this was by far the most comfortable thing ive ever used. and the velvet wrist cushion is AWESOME. why spend so much money on a computer and be so uncomfortable using it?

    this same philosophy caused me to buy better keyboards and mice. everything i do on a computer is through that medium.

    Studies have shown that having a laptop on top of your legs/nuts actually lowers your sperm count.
