No offense but that's just silly.
VENTS are designed to increase airflow
. If they are blocked
(as by one's lap) the hot air builds up inside the unit.
If a unit was designed, somehow, to use the user's body as a form of heatsink, you would want to couple it to the body for greater heatflow -- but since the body is a SOURCE of heat and typically much warmer than anything around it (in normal environments) it would be a very poor choice for a heat sink...
Now, if people were NOT heat sources, were made out of a highly heat conductive materail and maybe had COOLING FINS... then
The brain. It's God's gift. Use it.
BTW... with these internal temps I've seen listed, I'm assuming the fan is on full blast... The MacBook I've used is a bit noisy when the fan kicks in (as I've seen it do just playing an AAC)... Has the added noise been an issue?
