Good secondary computer.

Just wait until 2 years from now when it breaks and Apple's response is to buy a new one. Take the advice form someone who has been down the road. At first its great but sooner or later, depending on how many corners they cut in your particular machine you will be needing something fixed. I have 4 dead iPods and a Powerbook that had to go to Linux if I wanted the wifi to keep working. On all occasions Apple's advice was to give them more money to buy a new one. Other OEMs will try and fix what you have got, Apple overcharges and screws their clients.

All metal frame laptops do that. its because the chassis acts as a giant heatsink. It's completely natural, the internals actually run cooler than in a plastic laptop because of this.

I didn't say they wouldn't. I was just assuring him that his laptop wasn't going to catch fire.
