Have you noticed that the latest laptops which feature Intel i7 processors and NVIDIA graphics cards run very hot when placed on your lap or countertop? My Asus Eee PC 1201N Netbook has this same problem and it runs a so hot that it will crash while gaming.
A laptop cooler is a must have nowadays, to insure a prolonged laptop life. I usually use a portable USB laptop cooler, but sometimes get tired of adjusting it to the right angle and making sure the USB cable doesn’t get tangled in anything. I just want to sit down, get comfortable and use my laptop without having to make many adjustments.
