Most Dell run hot in my experience. Nothing to worry about, of course, just inferior design.

Toshiba is good for cooling in my experience. I've had a Toshiba Portege R100 and got an R400 in the mail. Superior design, superior cooling, Toshiba invests a lot in design investment. Other brands are good too but yeah Dell has always been below par in cooling.

They range from not bad to incredibly over priced lol.

Toshiba is good but HP and Gateway are cool too. Dells just run hot in general, nothing you can do about that. MSI/Asus are cool too but they tend to run a bit more. Worth it in my opinion for the high quality and longer warranty but yeah it's up to you.

I wish I new some good AU sites so I could check it out and link a few. Keyboard Cowboy just bought a very nice MSI gaming laptop and loves the thing.

I don't think his in particular was but they do make such laptops and for a lot less than Alienware. Depends on fellow's price range of course, tho.

Dunno about Toshiba gaming lappies to be honest. I'm all about portability now, as laptops were intended for I guess. Toshiba is good stuff, though.
