Do I really wanna do that?
My Mac is only about 2 & 1/2 weeks old....

Wow! Iceing it seems extreme...
But since you did'nt answer my queston, I'll ask again...... where the exhaust vent?
I mean with all the heat your explaining, where did Apple design the heat to escape from inside?
I've noticed unlike most laptops ( like my old Dell & my GF's Dell ) my Mac Book Pro 15 seems to have no obvious area for the heat to exscape...
I have noticed some heat above the keyboard where the screen hinge is, but dont see any vents...
I was gonna buy a lap top cooler for my GF's laptop & thought about getting self one but wonder if it would really do anything for my MBP15?
I have'nt taken any pics of the keyboard cover that I finally just bought at the apple store, but I will say this, It fits extremely well over the keys & dont move, stays perfectly in place.
& that being said, its also what I dont like about it.
Its has a sticky feeling about it that makes the smooth flow I use to have on the uncovered keys not there anymore you need to completely lift your fingers up off the keys each time.
I suppose even though I did'nt notice it,...

I pretty much am on it all day & all night & I'm constantly in different locations with it.
But when I edited the video I mentioned above, I was at my desl the whole time.

this sounds interesting, I wonder where I would get that?
& I must say, the one ( of many ) things...
