thats very interesting. I suppose he had the laptop on for a very long time for that to happen. before i installed everest, im sure our lappy took a beating...
@ 205* F, when playing GTA:VC the game starts to lag. after i lift the laptop off the table for 10 seconds, it cools to 180's and the game is as smooth as before.
most shut down after 150*F hmm... i've only had long experiences with one laptop and i find that very odd...
