I purchased a T60p about two months ago and I haven't had any of these happen
(yet?) running Ubuntu 7.10. The machine only gets slightly warm to the touch
after a few hours idling.

Does your fan run all the time that loud? I'm wondering if there were changes
made at the factory to fix this type of problem if it was wide spread.
