    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?
    I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, so me downloading it for free isn't losing them any money.

    Yep, After placing it on a flat surface I've got massive improvements it now idles at 25*c.
    But my Hard Drive temp is reading 50*c during just normal internet use, do they normally get that hot it's only 40 gig.
    I'm thinking it may be a dodgy sensor or something like that?

    Laptop's get rid of most of the heat through the base.

    I remember reading about someone who received large second degree burns to their legs by putting their laptop on their lap. I'm pretty sure I'd have lifted it off before it got to that stage. Maybe they thought the smell was coming from next door. omgwtfBBQ!!!11!!

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    wana hear something even worse and true?

    Studies have been done and show that men, who use their laptops on their laps tend to have a lower sperm count because the heat gets to their ping pongs and beats up the sperm!

    So think twice before putting a laptop on ur lap... (if ur a guy)

    OR

    put some ice down ur pants...then talk on msn

    Ping pongs?

    Use the proper term... Testicles.
