The netbook she received was adorable. The moment I saw it, I wanted to tear it down (but she was unwilling to let me). I couldn't imagine how so much functionality including wireless connectivity, internet access, a webcam, ample storage space, and a card reader could be packed into such a small space without a thermal problem.
Talk about a potential cooling nightmare! In one tear-down website, it was made clear that spacing is tight, so the manufacturer opted for a fan, but not much else. I'll be interested to see in the coming months whether a thermal issue in these netbooks arises. Have any of you had any problems with yours? I might have the thermal solution.
