Well, guess that settles the issue we had a couple of weeks ago about whether Apple really did accidentally leave some plastic film over the rear MacBook ventilation area. When we last left off, it looked like it might be a sporadic issue with some models shipped to Europe; now Apple's come clean with the whole vent-film issue, plainly stating "some MacBooks may have left the factory with a thin piece of clear plastic covering the rear vent." Apple's support page goes on to say, however, that if you don't have the film and are still having heat issues, please see Apple support article 30612 -- which itself is an article about how it's normal for MacBooks to get hot. Well done, well done.
