I am currently looking for a new gaming laptop. I know desktops are better for price and performance when it comes to a gaming machine but I enjoy the mobility and the comfort of a laptop. One of my big issues is I sit with the laptop actually on my lap (crazy idea I know). All the gaming laptops I have had have overheating issues even when taking extra care to not cover up the vent on the bottom of the laptop. The laptops can run idle for hours and not seem to heat up the laptop but as soon as I open anything that requires the graphics card to run harder theyve all seemed to get extremely hot. I play WoW and Diablo 3 regularly but usually have them set on the lowest possible graphics and turn off everything I possibly can. I was hoping to find a laptop that will not heat up when running those games preferably at higher graphics but the most important part to me is that it will stay cool. I know I can use a cooling pad but that just seems to delay the issue for me not correct it and I prefer not having to use one. I also have dusted out my current laptop even to the point of removing all the parts and rebuilding it so please do not suggest that because it was already tried. So if anyone knows of a laptop that can stay cool even after hours of intense graphics running please let me know.
