I use a Compaq laptop and its always around 55-65% celcius. HP is the parent company of Compaq laptops. So I guess the parts are the same in Compaq laptops which are used in HP Laptops. This is my first and only laptop though. Works just OK. Cant play heavy multi player games otherwise the laptop just shuts down out of excess heat. Using a cool pad makes only a little difference.

HP ProBook 4530s with Home Premium 64 here. Mine typically runs right around 40C, but I generally don't play graphics-intensive games. It's a little over a year old, and thanks to the knowledgeable folks on the W7 forums, it has been running smoothly pretty much all that time.

Not only HP but many companies ship different models than what they ship in the US. They provide different warranties to which makes no sense, a device works the same here as in Germany or Botswana. These companies want our money then try to deny warranty claim as much as possible or simply lie about doing a repair.


A friend sent me a Gigabyte m6900 mouse from Australia which quit working properly. I contacted them and they said since it was sold in Australia I had no warranty at all in there really poor attempt at English. They had no answer when asked what the difference was in using it there or the US. They also "repaired" a motherboard I returned to them....4 times! I kept getting the same one back until I asked for a cross shipment. Then that board was DOA. Their solution was for me to install XP because w7 would not work. This was after w7 was out for a year and the box had it listed as compatible. Each return for "repair" took 3-4 weeks.

I do not purchase OEM PC's. I either build them myself or get one built to my specs by CyberPower and seein how I will be 65 in August, the latter will probably be my choice if I ever need a new PC.

Other than small laptops, I have no plans to ever buy a computer again. My last desktop was one I had custom built and it was a POS from the word go. I recently built my present one and will continue to build my own from now on (I'm pushing 64, btw) no matter how old I get (though I may have to hire help to lug it around).

I've been boycotting HP for many years now due to product abandonment and unbelieveably poor customer service/tech help(less). The only one worse than HP is Acer.

That's strange, I've never had an issue in years of using Acers, that's wht I keep buying them.

Currently I own four of them.

The one time I did need their after-sales service (warranty replacement of a dead DVD-RW drive)
they replaced it while I waited.

Everything of Acers I owned was a POS. The keyboard that came with the Acer desktop I had was awkward and uncomfortable to use (I went back to the seven year old keyboard that had come with my Gateway; every keyboard I've had since was better than the Acer). The mouse was uncomfortable and the design was so flimsy, I kept palm clicking it (the seven year old Gateway mouse worked much better). The machine itself was constantly breaking down and Acer's tech help was useless.

I also had two Acer Aspire Ones. The first one died one month out of warranty. I bought another one because it was the only one with XP I could find on short notice just before a trip. It died only three months later (while on a trip). I was so disgusted with Acer by then, I didn't bother to get it fixed or replaced under warranty; I just replaced it with an ASUS.

Maybe I'm lucky. I've had a HP laptop for well over one year. I've had a HP desktop for over 2 years and have had no problem with either.

I carry a HP 510 business PC that was given to me and is about 10 years old, runs Win7 fast on 1gb RAM with Celeron.

One reason I find it hard to convince myself to replace it is that the ones I test all seem like cheap plastic that I could crumple in my hands, while the HP feels like solid steel by comparison - even though I know it's also plastic but it's so much toucher plastic that it doesn't give at all.

So I'm still waiting for it to die, realizing I'll likely never see another laptop build this tough, loyal to it as long as it stays alive.
