My laptop is almost always on my lap when I'm using it... I can feel the sterility already, hooray

Same here. I almost always have my laptop on my lap. Sometimes, when I'm not listening to anything, I can hear my sperm scream as they burn.

I'm genuinely surprised, the only time I see people use laptops actually on their laps is on the train, usually I see people use them on tables or something similar.

On the bright side, at least you don't need to worry about accidental pregnancies

My last 5 laptops have been desktop replacements, so I'm plugged in to a dozen peripherals and camped out at my desk most of the time. It's just as well, as computers as powerful as one would need to replace a desktop are typically in the 9+ pound range.

Nonsense. My desktop is BESIDE my desk, not UNDER it.

Ah, but yours is sitting on a mat. Made of fabric. Which means it will become filled with dust rather quickly. My rig will remain pure, thanks to the power of hardwood flooring.

I used to work for Dell. They changed the name from laptops to notebooks after some woman badly burned her legs from using the computer on her lap. She was disabled so couldn't feel the heat burning her legs. Not sure if it was a Dell that burned her, but they changed the name to avoid lawsuits.

I mean, if all the components take 70 watts to power, they are going to/produce 70 watts of heat, even with the best cooling in the world. Not a whole lot you can do to "fix" a cooling system in such a way as to eliminate basic physics. When its on a soft surface (say someone's legs,) the sides and bottom are covered. Save venting the heat between the keyboard and hinge (difficult to do, and rather hand burn-y), it has to come out one of those areas.

That's interesting, I thought the shift in name was more to do with power - Notebooks were less powerful and could run office applications and be fine for media consumption; whereas Laptops were more powerful and could even be used for gaming to an extent' my laptop for example runs pretty much all last gen games just fine

It used to be very common for the monitor to sit on the pc on the desk. Then 'towers' where introduced.

My desktops are never on the floor if I can help it, and I have a lot of desktops and servers. Laptops - sometimes on my lap. Usually on my standing desk.
