Many laptops have very important vents on the bottom. In this aspect, the design of Apple laptops is far superior as there are no vents on the underside.
That is what everybody should agree with
Never put a running laptop on a mattress, thick carpets, couch, sofa, or pillow, unless we have any flat board to support it. Most of laptop have only 3-4mm space underneath which the air intake somewhere located. I noted starting from Core-i series the heat quite excessive and it affect the temperature of the board area.
But hell, my kids keep doing it while I'm away.
