well it might be simple answer considering the other answers but all the newer laptops run a lil hot to kept on the lap, when kept on for than 10-15 mins.....plus all of em have have shutdown feature when overheated to protect mobo and processor..... i have a amd turion 64x2 and core 2 duo...... both run hot enough not to be kept on the lap or to be run while kept on a soft surface, I always use em keeping on a hard surface..... but that's me..... the guru's of the forum might think otherwise..... :)

Right on! The laptops tend to heat up once you place them on surfaces that block the ventilation.

Heh. Kinda funny as this device is called lap-top but isn’t optimized for lap use. Maybe we should start calling it hardwood-top? :P

Yeah, I’ve noticed it too, but I thought it was heating up because of outside heat.

I usually don’t put the lappy in my lap because it’s a bit heavy and makes my legs ache if kept there for a long time. :confused:

theres a software "notebook hardware control". its made for dell but works on other models too
