I have an older MacBook Pro ( 2007, 2.33GHz ) running 10.6.6 that I'm hoping to use as a media only ( movies & music ) computer. I'd like to connect it to an external monitor and leave the lid closed.
Would doing so pose any risk to the laptop? I heard that the a good amount of heat is dispersed through the keyboard and that leaving the lid closed could cause the computer to overheat. Is there any truth to this?
