Brilliant way to ruin your laptop
Authored by: bpaul on Feb 07, '04 12:24:05AM

Any engineer who honestly believes that dissipating heat through the keyboard is a good idea is a fool. A computer should never be intended to run only with the display open, and it surprises me that Apple has implemented this pathetic system. Here is why.
The Macintosh philosophy readily adapts to the newest, latest peripherals. On a Mac you will never find interfaces found in 99.9% of industry, such as RS232 or GPIB ports, yet there will be two Firewire ports. The thing that separates the computer from a $5.99 toy is not the display, but the processor, and our ability to unconditionally interact with it should never be comprimised.
If you burn your display out in one of the ways suggested above, that is Apple's problem, not yours. You bought a processor, and that's what you're using it as.
Windows laptops do not suffer from this problem. It is shameful that macintosh has to get a tick for being inferior in this category.
