Default LCD screen getting hot

Does anybody else's LCD screen get hot, mine is about 50 degrees, about 105 degrees Fahrenheit. I know CRT's get hot but not LCD screens, surely?

I never really noticed my lcd screen getting hot on its own. I have a laptop though so if it does get hot its because I closed the lid while the computer is running and the heat from the computer base transferred to the screen, woops

I've never had a problem with my lcd heating up. Then again, my laptop never really gets that warm at all...

Lucky sod, i have to revome my laptop from my knee if i plan to use it for more than 20 mins, the base of the laptop burns. I suppose it must be at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit and about 60 degrees celcuis.

No the screen is not Dell, its samsung, and its not on my laptop either.
