Weellll ... had a few problems with Toshy laptop motherboards over heating. My current model has just burnt out its third motherboard. First two were replaced under warranty (should have sold it after 2nd one was replaced ) but Toshy count warranty from when the unit was bought - not when it had a completely new board installed by them !!

Even the techie at Toshiba UK had to admit this was a common fault.

I'll be sticking to Sony or HP in the future

Many people make the mistake of buying the fastest CPU they can in a laptop. They tend to forget where the heat will go!!!

Slower CPUs - especially mobile ones - mean less heat probs and longer battery life. Laptops are NOT desktops and never will be.
