That's why (at least in us) most are sold as notebooks and not laptops; there were a few lawsuits about people usoing laptops on top of their lap... after some ran so hot they risked burning peoples legs (and umm...lap... apparently some lucky person got like 2nd degree nut burns, supposedly with pants on) the vendors here switched their terminology unless they knew it could keep it's cool.

And... creative professional or not, $5000+ is crazy for a notebook computer.
