Hi
I have a mbp 13'' 2012, I'd like to know what component is there under the ESC key or in that area, infact it's the hottest point of my mac, I feel it everytime I put it on my lap.
Thanks

Do you have the power plugged in (while the notebook is powered on) prior to putting it on your lap? If so, there are a few transistors in that area. They get hot in normal operation.

And for the record, the macbook pro is not really a 'laptop'. Better to have a lap desk...(ya, I know this is not what you were asking)
