    I kind of like this idea. It doubles the MacBook as an art piece. I was wondering if it's wise to do this with the MBP since there is some heat coming out of those speaker grills. I always thought Apple engineered it in a way where some heat would also escape through there.

    Any thoughts?

    Interesting concept as far as desktop footprint goes, if not incredibly fugly. The concerns over blocking the heat vents could easily be addressed by adding a corrugated surface to the wood block. Like a row of plastic rhinestones, stuck on with your mother's BeaDazzler™. :D

    I don't see how that would be any different than running the laptop with an external display with the lid closed. Heat shouldn't be an issue I wouldn't think.

    I must admit I don't quite get it. Maybe it's the angle of the shot. Maybe he's managed to turn wood into a conductor of heat.

    I do. The MBP is a headless Mac... use it with an external keyboard, mouse and monitor. Takes up little space, is very quiet, can select my own display, and has enough power to do what I need it for i.e print design.

    I do this everyday pretty much with a MBP on a Griffin stand, either opened or closed. Most of the time it remains closed, however. I love my headless Mac!
