I looked at the cpu temp incorrectly, it is running at 57c and for the HDD it is 67c - are laptops easy to clean out? I been working with desktops for years and know how to clean them out, but dont have a clue about laptops. Could there be dust build up and does the CPU have a fan on laptops?
AS regards the Hard Drive, This will be a old 4200rpm Speed drive and will be running all the time hence heat it would be better if you could get your hands on a 7200rpm drive and the laptop speed would be a lot faster
thanks mate. As you know i been on the forums for years now and took the plunge after wife told me to get a laptop and we bought a second job to see if we can get on with it in a home enviroment. We can and we love it!
