I know my laptop doesn't necessarily slow down when it gets really hot (easily upwards of 100ºC), but it will freeze randomly at times for ~10-30 seconds, sometimes defrosting after giving it a smack Razz

A Mac, that explains alot. This is a Dell, known for their track record of overheating laptops. Google search it. But then again this has happened on a few laptops I've used. Neutral

And no, the Intel i5 540M throttles back at 72.7 degrees Celsius (seems likely since that's when it really lags) according to the Intel Technical Support Engineer. It features the new SpeedStep technology, remember. It will only power off when it get's to 105 degrees Celsius. The Turbo Boost refuses to operate above 70 degrees Celsius, so that probs slows things down aswell.

I recently found out I can put an i3 2.1Ghz in this, maybe that would burn less.

But atm, it's simple - Fast when it's cool, very slow when it's hot. Razz

Not necessarily. It should have been £700 but I got it free on the insurance after the other one broke. Best part was I paid £20 to get the other one fixed and then sold it for £300. Wink I'm gonna buy a can of compressed air tomorrow, i've never cleaned this thing out for dust. Shocked
