> thin yet very effective heat-sink

Well there are those new (still experimental?) silicon-based heat-*pumps* that somehow use electricity to make heat go where it doesn't want to through silicon (don't remember exactly how they work, although I think similar principles as diodes/transistors)

I also remember reading a little brief in Scientific American (couldn't manage to find it on the site though) about some group that had invented a heat-sink that had microchannels filled with liquid methanol or some such liquid. The methanol would heat up, vaporize, go to the outside, dump the heat, reliquify, and repeat the process. So basically a heat pipe. I want Apple to incorporate those into the 'books.. <Drool>

Sounds like a stinky solution, but it just might work... ;c)
