Might not be made yet.

I'm finding some that will not tolerate even the slightest warm spot on the laptop surface. A cool in temperature laptop on all surfaces is not something I've found yet.

Your post shows that you may have to wait a little longer for this machine.

I don't necessarily need it to stay freezing cold to the touch, i just mean that i would prefer a laptop that doesn't heat up too much, particularly on the underside. Surely some of them are cooler than others?

Sadly not today.

Unless we move to the slower 1.xGHz CPUs and never use a dedicated GPU and even then I'm finding warm spots on the machines. This means that not a single machine can be found that owners that want it without a warm spot can be found.

I've only been through some hundred models over the last year so we may have to wait for a model to show up that can sate this requirement.
