    how hot should the CPU in my laptop be getting? i have it sitting on my desk at home and none of the air vents are blocked. I dl'ed a small program taht monitors the temps and it says the cpu is getting to 78 celsius. When i notice its getting hot it slows down dramatically and thats usually when i'm working on something important so its a pain in the ass.

    I've tried lifting it off the desk and that didn't do much at all. as far as the battery, it should be fine, the computer is a year and a half old. as far as taking the covers off, i'll try that later.

    anyone have an idea of what temp is about average for it? its a Dell inspiron 6000, pentium m processor, i think its a 2.7ghz.

    also, has anyone tried one of those things you set your laptops on with the fans under it?

    So i bought the Targus CoolMat. it has fans that plug into the usb port. it works damn good. brought my cpu temp down about 20 degrees celsius. For $30 i guess it was worth it.
