Do NOT use your laptop in the nude!!!

I had to return my battery for my powerbook because they got super hot after about a hour or so of use. It was a recall from Sony. I've heard that you really shouldn't use a laptop on your lap if you're a guy, even with pants on. Supposedly the heat can significantly reduce your sperm count. !+)

Now...that guy was just an idiot. :-B

I have a laptop that I lay down on the couch with while I watch TV, and I know enough to put a pillow underneath the thing at all times - whether I have it on my legs or my stomach, with clothes on or not. :-D Sometimes I have the pillow and computer over "that region," but I always have clothes on for that. I'm not dumb enough to put the thing directly on my willy. !+) !+) !+)

That takes a very refined type of stupidity. :-o

Laptops get hot, but that is just plain dumb. :-B Like Mercer, I always put a pillow underneath, what an idea!

Hmm - here's a related story (from June 2006) - lucky this guy didn't have this one on his lap while nude!!!


Dell Laptop Explodes in Flames
At a conference in Japan, a Dell laptop suddenly exploded into flames, and lucky for its owner the fiery blast occurred while the PC was sitting on a table and not in his lap. An onlooker reported that the notebook continued to burn, producing several more explosions over the course of about five minutes.

The model of the offending Dell notebook wasn't mentioned, but since it was of the Windows persuasion, we can now boast that we are unbiased in our reports of fiery laptops, both Mac and PC. It's only a matter of time before something like this happens on an airplane. – Charlie White
