Hello all. Just wanted to ask a question to any others who run their MBPs in clamshell mode... I just got the 2011 15.4" with the 2.3 i7 & 8GB RAM upgrade, and the standard 1440 res screen. Absolutely LOVING it so far. Today I popped into my local Apple store and picked up an iWires MDP -> HDMI cable, and the Apple wireless keyboard/magic mouse - everything is working brilliantly with my Sony 1080p TV in clamshell mode. My question is, are there any detrimental effects to running the MBP in clamshell mode for long periods of time? The reason I got the MBP instead of holding out for the new iMac is the portability factor, but when I'm working from home (which is quite often), I'd like to work with the external Monitor pretty much all the time for the extra screen size/space... May seem like a silly question but I just don't want to do any long-term damage to it... The only thing I've noticed so far is the fan seems to blow slightly louder when running certain things... Any help greatly appreciated!
