Submission + - Laptop uses lid as radiator (

gigantu' writes: The Inquirer runs a story about a new cooling method for laptops shown at IDF Fall 2007. Compal presented a laptop that uses its lid as a radiator. Heat is transfered trough a special hinge to a radiator sitting behind the TFT. This method can dissipate the heat from a 17W CPU. Not a lot, but enough to get a silent fan under normal usage.
