    I just got x61t and I like it.
    however, there are some issues that I want to make sure it is normal.

    First, the palm rest gets hot. Especially, the right side is.
    It makes me unpleasent and I have to put my hands away.
    Since I do alot of typing, which was a reason for choosing IBM,
    this is important for me.

    Second, there is a high pitch noise from the AC adaptor.
    When the laptop is on, it keeps going on.
    It is also very unpleasent sound due to its sound characteristic.

    Thanks for your comments in advance.

    During summer especially, the heat gets to notebooks.

    Try working in a well ventilated and cool area. Also think about getting a notebook cooler.

    When running at full AC power and doing intensive tasks, the laptop can get pretty hot. Its still nowhere near as bad as the 2 dell laptops I have. If you don't need all that power, you can configure a power scheme that reduces performance but the laptop won't generate as much heat.

    Not sure about the high pitch noise from the AC adapter as I've never noticed that.

    IBM will replace your whining AC adapter, so give them a call about that.

    As for the right palm rest, that's right over where the CPU sits, so that's why it gets so warm.
