    heat pads at the front of the laptop before the keyboard so you can rest your hands or wrists on them and would help dissipate heat from the cpu / graphics card etc.

    Not sure about the new ones, but the old macbooks use to do this. The space to the right of the trackpad would heat up to quiet a nice temperature

    USB 3.0 could soon drive monitors, hard drives with 100W of power
    Instead of having vga / dvi / mini display ports they will just have more USB 3 ports so you can have / use multiple displays without any lag / delay etc.

    The USB 3 ports will stop users poking there fingers etc into holes that output power of that amount lol

    You'd hope so but the power would be negotiated rather than live the whole time and most laptops adapters are only rated for 65W total besides eventually intel's lightpeak/thunderbolt will probably take over when they do it propperly with optical connections rather than the abrtion that is currently implemented on the new macs.

    USB is ubiquidous but I still think it has too much overhead in its design for certain things to work really well.
