That's a gaming laptop and the surface temps will cause some to be returned. That's not a defect. You can lower it a bit with a laptop cooling pad. Some pads do better than others.
I have a HP Pavilion DV 9700 notebook with a Core 2 Duo CPU T5550 @ 1.83GHz with a Nvidia Geforce 8600 graphics card. I was curious what the maximum temperature under a load is and what a good operating temperature is. I live in an area that gets pretty hot during the summer time and I worry about it over heating. I did buy a lap desk that has a usb fan built in it but the program I am using to monitor the temperature does not really show any difference in the temp when I have it connected.
Thank you in advance
