Re: Does not fry the users lap?

Yes, I do agree sparse use of laptops on laps is due to vents underneath.

The "desktops" were dying 12 years ago. A company I worked for then only bought laptops or rack mount "pizza" style unless you had some specialist application that needed a PCI or PCIe card (sometimes 4 x screen graphics not things on USB).

Obviously some gamers not into consoles kept buying desktops. All in ones are a ripoff. All the disadvantages of desktops and laptops without a built in UPS or portability. A laptop pretending to be a desktop at excessive price. Better to buy reading glasses and use a 15" laptop than a same resolution 17" or 19" All in One.
