    Hello,

    I'm planning on buying a MBP this fall, and I'm wondering if the current models can be used when closed (with monitor and keyboard/mouse plugged in).

    Thanks

    Yes they can it is called clamshell mode and all the macbooks have been able to do it since at least powerbook times.

    Nice! Thanks!

    I was afraid that form-over-function design would cause issues with heat dissipation.

    Well it will heat up more easily and be more likely to throttle back because of it. But you'll have to be doing something fairly intense, the coooling is much better than it was. That is the trade of for using a closed laptop as a desktop I'm afraid.
