Info please 1. what laptop do you have? 2. what OS are you using?

As the demand for smaller and more powerful laptops grows the cooling solutions will have to be developed in order to maintain stable systems. All of the upper end laptops sold for the last couple of years have had issues with heat, some more than others. A lot of the time I believe the heat issue is subjective, everyone who has used...
