    The heat is from the CPU (located near your ram it seems)

    You should notice a fan at the back of your laptop (hopefully working)

    But this hot (not boiling hot) feel, is quite normal for most laptops.

    No !

    Leave the covers on.

    You can purchase a platform that the laptop can sit on that cools the laptop with fans (That was a long way of saying, I don't know what it's called !)
    These things do exist.

    The Hot, actually yes very hot feel, is normal.
