    Just wanted to know, if I started folding on a powerbook 12'', if there would be heat problems, as I heart it gets really hot.
    Any ideas?
    TIA

    I haven't had any problems with my 15" TiBook. It does get hot while it folds. The fan usually runs continuously as it folds, however the fan turns off about 1 minute after I turn folding off.

    It is hard to give you a straight yes or no. I personally do not think that it will, but if I am wrong I don't want you to fry your new laptop. So what I can tell you is that I do it on mine. And I am not worried about damaging it. (Besides it is under warrenty)

    Ok. I consider to let it fold until the day the warranty is over :)

    i own a 12 pb and personally even under heavy usage it doesnt get too hot.
    i say this as comparing it to a compaq laptop i used to own that literally left burn marks on my thigh.
    the 12 pb doesnt get that hot!
    i wouldnt worry about it
