    For me it is depending on weather it is summer or winter. It is good during the winter but bad during the summer.

    What type of Mac are we talking about? Regarding mine, I was worried about heat but really has not been a problem and I live in Las Vegas where it does get hot in the summertime. Not sure how a iMac would handle it but I am willing to bet that it also would be ok.

    When I first bought it did used to bother me, but it hardly ever does now. Mainly 'cause after 3 years I'm pretty sure it's not going to overheat and die now :eek:

    In the Winter I tend to spread my work around me on my bed, get my iBook nice and toasty, then use it to warm my feet :)

    Well, No. But then again my iMac G4 only has a HDD temperature sensor.

    I don't notice the heat from my tower unless I walk into the room after it's been running all day. It doesn't really bother me :)

    I have a C2D iMac. It does get a little hot, yes... but not to the point where I'd notice in normal usage. Therefore, I have no real reason to be concerned.

    My laptop is getting hotter and hotter. Quite annoying really. It's ok until I go to a flash website, then it's going mental.

    How unfortunate... I have no problems with Flash at all on my iMac. Also, I have a desktop rather than a laptop. Finally, why did you quote me? Your post doesn't seem to connect with mine, since our Macs are so different.

    Yes, if I use my MacBook on a couch/in bed, the heat can get annoying.
