OSNews posts Apple Hypocrisy: “MacBook NOT a Laptop”. “Many people who have called Apple to complain about excessive heat coming from their newly purchased computers have been told that the MacBook and the MacBook Pro are in fact Notebook computers and not Laptop computers. This article details why they are totally full of it.” Well, details is a bit generous. Rants is more like it. Apple pictures people with MacBooks on their laps. But reports seem to indicate the MacBooks are too hot to leave there for long. That's not a good thing.
