Important detail, indeed, but not sufficient to make me buy a new
machine and definitely not making up for the braindead 16/9 aspect ratio
which would bring me back to the crippling 768 vertical pixels of my
old X30.

Most likely the fan is too dirty and/or the thermal compound on top of
the CPU (or GPU) should be replaced.

My T60 (with ATI graphics) tends to get hot as well, but that's always
been the case.  It was one of the motivations (along with the need for
more RAM) for me to buy a second hand T61 with Intel graphics to replace
it (AFAIK that T61 model is still the "best" available machine with
a 14" 4/3 screen).

The T61's 14" 4/3 and the X201s's 12" 16/10 result in the same final
width (that of a normal fullsize keyboard).

Seems very unlikely.

Indeed, my X201s is lighter, smaller, faster and with a much better
autonomy than my T61 (and it doesn't have that many fewer vertical
pixels), so it's my machine of choice when traveling.
