View Full Version : Running a powerbook when closed

Jul 12, 2006, 04:37 PM
I am getting a powerbook G4 400mhz. It is permanently closed. Does this model use the keyboard to disperse heat? Will it be able to fold without overheating? Does this model have a heat sensor on the CPU?

All G4 PowerBooks can operate in clamshell mode. I believe this was first implemented with the G3 "Bronze" PowerBooks.

Some people still shy away from running processor-intensive tasks in clamshell mode, but my feeling is that it's okay.
