Heat Battle: Dell Latitude vs. MacBook

This just in: laptops can get pretty damn hot. Brian Krische wanted to know just how hot, so he decided to run a little test. He pitted a 1.83GHz Core Duo MacBook (left) against a 1.83GHz Core Duo Dell Latitude D620 (right). Brian ran The Hills Have Eyes—not the best movie choice, in my opinion—in its entirety on both laptops running off battery power. Throughout the flick he recorded temperature readings of both machines. The general concensus? They are both hot as all hell, but the MacBook is a bit more. At one point a portion of the underside of the MacBook reached a blistering 119.8 degrees. Not very "lap" friendly, if I do say so myself.
