According to Toshiba; “The notebook computers can overheat at the notebook’s plug in to the AC adaptor, posing a burn hazard to consumers.”

Laptop overheating is becoming an issue for all manufacturers. Processors and batteries get hot and as the quest to get smaller and lighter ensues there’s just more components in a smaller space. Where does it stop? Either better cooling technology needs to be introduced or, for the consumer’s protection, a limit must be reached.
