I wonder what the smallest enclosed airspace Apple would want a MBP to be run in without it overheating. Given that I am planning on making a metal enclosure that is 16"x11"x2", there is much more air in the unit to transfer the heat out of the heat sinks, and transfer it into the enclosure.
I think it's more like how long until it overheats... maybe a mechanical fuction with valves and fans... the valves open, when temps reach a max, and vent all the air (one in, one out). Combined with a moisture sensor that can override this from happening... and a "rain setting" that gives you some warning beeps when its getting too hot. Just brainstorming ideas.... Oh, another thing that you've probably already thought of is expansion and contraction issues. I could forsee the computer running for a while and getting hot, and then being dropped into a pool of cold water. The seals may give due to the different rates of contraction, and all that work lost!
