What do we have here, kiddies. Was Apple trying to slip one past us by submitting this tasty patent for a liquid cooled portable on Thanksgiving? This patent that may, or may not, see production describes two separate cooling processes involving liquid.

The first is an active, two-stage system that allegedly employs a gas and liquid to cool the vitals. The second transfers the heat via a pump onto a large aluminum plate (maybe the entire lid) located behind the screen for optimum cooling. There is no tell if this patent, like so many others, will ever be employed on a mass scale, but with quad-core chips now seeing mobile use, maybe this is Apple’s solution to keep ’em cool.
