My HP that I just replaced with my current computer only had one fan. If the PC was on, the side of the case felt warm to the touch.

you want to talk about crappy cooling . ..

i have a pentium 4 (regular, not M) laptop, running at 2.4GHz *NOT OC*

( i got it WAAAAAY before centrino came out )

anyways, it has a couple of fans, but the only airvent that works is the one on the bottom, even after sending it to hp twice!!

how is there supposed to be airflow when the fan is between the comp and a desk?!?!?!?
