My Mum's just brought a laptop for herself, It's just for chatting on MSN and playing the odd "no frills" games. It's a 2.0Ghz Pentium 4 -M.
The only worry is that it seems to idle at around 55*c which I worry is maybe a little high?
I had a laptop Acer Aspire, Which used to idle in the 40's.
anyone know what's a safe temprature for them?
