    I am in horrible pain from the heat that is produced from my PPC. The problem areas are the right and left sides below the keyboard area and to the right and left of the trackpad area. I would love to fund some set of covers that can go over these areas to protect my hands from the discomfort and heat that I am constantly dealing with. This is particularly hard for me because I work on the computer for very long periods at a time. I have seen something called a wrist rug, but it is not really for this issue, anyone know of something similar but aimed at heat? I wish it were as simple as a battery recall, but my serial number is not part of the group. Thanks a great deal for your help, I am dying here. I might even have to give up on getting a new pro and get just the MB, the horror!

    The Msp

    Or, barring that, maybe using an external mouse, if possible?

    Keyboarding technique?

    Do you feel the heat while you are typing because you are resting your
    wrists on the hot surface? The most effective way of dealing with this
    is to change your keyboarding technique. To protect yourself from carpal
    tunnel syndrome as well as any number of other repetitive motion problems,
    you should refrain from resting your wrists while typing.

    In addition, if the machine is really that hot, I don't think you want to
    put anything on the surface that might insulate it and cause additional
    heat buildup.

    Just my $.02.

    Cold Ice? As opposed to Warm Ice? :confused:

    As I said in your other thread, an external keyboard and mouse should solve your problems.

    So I was unable to find anything to fit the need directly, but I bought a wrist rug which goes for about $20. I am waitinng for it to ship and should have it on the 24th. I will update the post when I give it a fews days of use. In the mean time, if anyone comes up with a better solution that is a direct answer to the issue, I would love to hear it.
