I Need a Left Handed Laptop!

Yes, Dorothy, even laptops are biased towards the right handed world!

My laptop (Dell Vostro 1700) is nice enough on most accounts, it’s getting a little old, but works well enough.  There is one issue that has been annoying since I bought it:  The cooling fan and heatsink are on the left side of the computer.  My mouse goes on that side and consequently, my hand ends up in this open-air convection oven whenever I’m working on it.  It’s not as bad as some laptops, but I still notice it.
