The Heat's off Computer users
A new product called Lapinator addresses a scorching side effect of using the latest Windows Pentium 4 Laptops and those elegant Mac G4 PowerBooks. Putting the computer on a Lapinator eliminates up to 95 percent of the searing heat today's ultrafast chips produce. There are reports of burn injuries, and any P4 notebook user will confirm that the P4 can, indeed, make one's lap feel like a heat sink.
This installed lap desktop costs $24.95 at the company's website (www.lapinator.com) and around $30 in stores. It's quite cool, really.
