ALL and I mean ALL QUAD CORE powered laptops look to run on the hot side. To the point these are not laptops unless you like thigh burns.
Almost all are going to be GAMER machines so accept these issues or recenter your wants with current available technology.
The bulk must be there to absorb and then remove the heat from the CPU and GPU. Also with such power we need a bigger battery to get at least a hour of battery time.
I'm looking to upgrade to a new laptop computer, and what i want is a
quadcore processor, 7200rpm hard drive, dedicated graphics card, and at
least 4-6gb of memory.
I can't seem to find a PC Laptop that looks even remotely like what I
want. I have been a pc user for years, and am used to the windows
operating system. I do a lot of graphic
work with photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver, etc. Is there a PC laptop
out there that looks as good without being so bulky and geared towards
"gamers" ?? I am not a gamer. I
want to do graphic work. please help. Oh and by the way, i am looking for a 15.6" screen size.
