    Typical PC user :ugh:

    My PowerBook G4 runs hot when on A/C power, but pretty cool on battery power.

    taking the battery out isn't going to make a difference...
    it's your cpu that get's hot, not the battery...
    and yes, mac laptops run hot

    I have a black macbook that is very comfortable to use on my lap while not plugged in. Yours may be running abnormaly hot.
