Hot Laptop

Posted on: September 17, 2008

So, I bought a laptop, and I’m not sure if I’m satisfied with it. I got a pretty good deal (in my opinion), it’s a Pentium 4 laptop with 2.0 GHz speed. The battery, which I was the most concern about, was fine. It doesn’t as long as I wanted, but it lasts for more than 1 hour which is good for me. But the problem with my new (used) laptop is the heat. When it’s used for more than 30 minutes, it gets really hot. I mean very HOT. Even the keyboard becomes so warm and the touch pad doesn’t work well because it’s too warm.

I know that buying second hand electronics is risky, but I just didn’t have the budget to buy a new one. I did some googling and found out that most of Pentium 4 laptops have shorter battery problem than Pentium 3, but do they have heat problem too? Any of you have a pentium 4 laptop that has the same overheating problem as mine? I don’t know if I’m going to re-sell this laptop or not. Maybe I’ll give it a shot on my vacation and see how it performs. If it’s getting worse, I have no choice but to sell it again.
