A design oversight on the HP Compaq nx6110?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

As I also inquired on http://www.meulie.net/forum_viewtopic.php?92.2718
the nx6110 seems to have a fan intake on the bottom. When the laptop is
standing on flat surface there is a slight opening between the surface
& the laptop, enabling air to reach the fan.
However, when one has the laptop on his/her lap, the left leg of the
person completely blocks off this fan!! Is this an oversight in the
design of this laptop, or is there no harm in this fan being blocked
