An electronic apparatus, e.g., a lap top computer, has an enclosure which on its inner surface is coated with a phase-change material, e.g., in micro encapsulated form, preferably mixed with paint which is used to coat the inner surface of the enclosure. The phase change material absorbs heat generated by components in the electronic apparatus and maintains the components in the apparatus at a reasonable temperature.
[ We claim:] [1.]1. A lap-top computer enclosure having heat generating electronic components enclosed in the lap-top computer enclosure, the lap-top computer enclosure having an inner surface coated with an encapsulant layer containing phase-change material which absorbs heat produced by the heat generating electronic components such that heat is dissapated from the components in an isothermal process.
