    Do Laptop's over heat?

    My relative has a Laptop. She can only use it 1 hour a day. She says her Laptop is slow.

    Do you have any recommendations for buying a Laptop?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Yes laptops can overheat. If the fan gets a bit blocked with dust. Use canned compressed air to clear it out, that's generally a good start. Laptops that a run on carpets/soft furnishing/beds are prone to suck up dust debris. Using laptops on a firm surface is better as they stand proud of the surface in their small pads.

    As for buying a laptop ... which country are you in? What is laptop going to be used for? (Basic surfing or more demanding processes?) What's the budget?

    Hope that helps a bit at least?

    Richard

    Hi,
    Let's see if someone in your part of the world can suggest a few in your price range.
