I don't overclock, have no need to and I certainly don't have any problems with heat on my Windows 8 machine, which is a Notebook and sits quite happily on my knee with never any problems regarding heat.

It never feels warm on my knee and it can be there for quite a long time.

I agree Kathryn, I didn't bother with the review thought I'd just wait for it to come via the normal channels. I use it a lot more than my Windows 7 machine now, I don't have to change my glasses to see the screen.

I agree with the Ladies. Only time I use my Windows 7 on my main dual boot system is to keep it updated. When 8.1 is released I will kill this dual boot system and install 8.1 only on a SSD and never look back. Will also update the wife's 7 system to 8.1 at that time. That will only leave my very old HP laptop on 7 as it was a XP machine and 7 has most drivers but 8 has even less. The problem is it just wont die so I can replace it. Just use it when we travel.
