I won't recieve mine until tomorrow, but once I do I'll start it up and run half-life 2 for a while and see what it does. I've got a cooling pad ready for it though, so I'll let you know once I mess around with it.
Are you guys running the laptop just flat on a desk or raised off the desk?
From everyone I've read about here, raising it off the ground to give it some airflow helps with the heat problems. Also a cooling pad works wonders.
