my 15" powerbook g4 is also "too hot to be a laptop" at times. It's a curse of the magniseum heatsink case. To make it more bearable, I set the power management to "auto" - so the cpu is allowed to throttle back when I don't need the full speed. This makes a huge difference. Of course once I start doing some hardcore photoshop work, it's an oven again.
