New cool-running laptop - advice please !

  swayzak 08:27 28 Sep 2009


My brother lives in a tiny flat with a converted broom cupboard for his laptop !

The old one keeps overheating & shutting down.

Can anyone advise a cool-running laptop/netbook ? Which cpu/chipset etc. should we look for ?

I think laptop would be preferable (bit more umph than netbook) but willing to look at either option - only used for emails, websurfing and maybe bit of video/music. Not a DAW or gaming machine.

My recently purchased Samsung NC10 stays cool all the time - one of the better ones according to the reviews I looked at.
