Dell isn't the only one with laptops that needed more maintenance to keep from overheating than your budget roadster. You can't imagine how many laptops I've dusted out over the past few years.

"Dell is being sued again, this time by a group of Canadian customers who claim that the notebooks they purchased from the Round Rock, TX based company are defective. In a suit filed on Friday, in the Ontario Superior Court, the plaintiffs accuse Dell of selling laptop computers that were suspect to motherboard failure and overheating problems."
