You should never assume anything! Just for the heck I took a can of air and sure enough there was a lot of dust. Itís running even cooler.

That's pretty poor. You'd expect a good clean out at the very least. Anyway hopefully you have the problem under control.

If you're not moving it much, I suggest you invest in a laptop stand.
I use one of these:
NotePal ErgoStand Basic - Cooler Master
Which is amazing, I can play intense games and not experience any issues, whereas previously it would overheat even just being idle on a flat surface. I don't even use the fan component, just having it elevated with the mesh backing gives great airflow.
I just wanted to post an update about this. I did get one of these stands and because of where I place my laptop being able to tilt it up worked great but as far as cooling it did nothing.

This isn't going to help much!
Unless you really need portability forget laptops that could be glued to your desk (IMO).
Still I'd be going back to the supplier of your laptop and ask for an explanation. It may be that the lap top needs an even better clean and the CPU reseated with new thermal compound.

Is your laptop running too hot? If not, you will not need a cooling pad (IMO). Those help for laptops that run too hot.
