Stay Away from Laptops
I have had a few laptops in my life and I swear almost everyone I ever had overheated and the motherboard went. After a year or so, the laptop would just shut off right in the middle of doing something. It would not give me a warning or anything. Just shut off. There would not even be "Windows is shutting down". Come to find out the motherboard was going and the computer was overheating. You can solve this problem for a very short time, but sooner or later you will have to replace the laptop. Motherboards are alot of money, so it is just cheaper to buy a new laptop or do the smart thing and get a desktop. You can purchase a laptop fan at radioshack or best buy for about $15-$20. This will double the time your laptop will run, but like I said this is only a short term fix.
