    Hi, my 13" ntbMBP will be arriving in a couple of days and I plan on using it in clamshell mode. But will the laptop be properly cooled? How will the fans draw in air and expel it?

    It wont overheat in clamshell mode. Your MacBook is designed to operate like that with no issues. You can see some little cooling slots along the back and sides where are gets moved through.

    I run mine for days on end in clamshell and never have a problem.
