I have a G70, which runs hot.  I used a vacuum cleaner and sucked out
all the openings I could find, which cooled it some.  Then I also got
a Xpad-slim.  It's running at 40.0C right now.  It goes up when I'm
doing some heavy processing.  Once in a while FireFox 3.0 pushes the
temp up, but I can watch streaming movies or YouTube with no
problems, although the temp does rise some.

My understanding is that HPs are notorious for high temps.  :(((

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no
right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function
of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by
majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).
