    dang.

    Maybe pickup a nice chill mate for it,
    just to be on the safe side? lol

    I just picked up a sweet 'Targus' chill mat.. for 'new' laptop
    and the laptop stays cool to the touch,
    even using all resources.
    The internal fan doesnt even have to kick on most of the time. lol

    I checked out the "vendetta online" game,
    and that produced a lot of heat!
    Movies/large videos as well.
    but not now.

    temp stays around 40-50/60ish C.
    Better safe than melted CPU right? lol

    Re: laptop temperature?

    is it possible my laptop doesnt have the capability of monitoring heat? how is this possible? i thought it was a safety feature so that if the laptop gets to critical heat it shuts itself down

    Not likely. Does the fan come on or change pitch? If so, then a sensor is monitoring the operating temperature. It does on mine, even though the monitoring software always reports an operating temperature of 81 degrees.
