Use laptop Macs in lid closed mode for quieter operation
Authored by: knagurski on Sep 27, '07 06:50:34AM

When I got my PowerBook G3 back in '99 I used this method regularly and kept my 'Book under my Studio Display. Back then, the Studio Displays had wide legs to accommodate a keyboard being stored under when not in use, and it was the perfect fit for a closed PowerBook.

Anyway, after about a year of using the PowerBook closed, I found that my screen had pretty much fried and I had to replace it. Moral of the story? Although you CAN use a MacBook/Pro closed, don't do so for extended periods of time.
