Toasted Skin Syndrome
It might sound ridiculous but it does exist. This condition arises when people rest a hot laptop on their skin (laps) for a long period of time.

The reason why Macbook is advertised as Notebook and not Laptop
Apple recommends their customers to use Macbook on a desk or other flat surface. There’s a warning in the Macbook’s manual recommending users not to put Macbooks on their laps, and not surprisingly the word ‘laptop’ does not appear in the manual.
If you got a laptop, just remember that it still should be placed on the desk, never on your lap.
