The Droids casing is extremely small considering that it is a slider so that could have a big influence. And as for the older laptop; x86 processors, especially older Intel ones, were idle at 50C easily. I just thought this was interesting because I never saw and arm processor get this hot. It was to my understanding arm processors shouldn't of gotten that hot. And if somebody is playing a heavy stressing game on the Pandora with it plugged in and overclocked to 800mhz+ i honestly now think there is a possibility of doing some kind of damage. I don't have any real backing and I do understand that they should crash before they get to hot but that is just my two cents.
I'd almost be willing to say you would blow up your battery before you blow up your proc

Isn't there a weak spot in the case by the battery?
