AMD Turion 64 Processor Hot?

Mon Aug 15, 2005 11:53 pm

Good morning!

I just bought a Compaq lap tap with a AMD Turion 64 in it. My husband has the exact same laptop but with a Pentium thing in it. My laptop gets incredibly hot after about 10 minutes and his does not. Is this normal for the Turion to get so hot?

I believe I can fly.....

www.tomshardware.com should have the best info....

Your hubby likely has a pentium "M" which yes, runs a LOT cooler then anything..but it's slower too.

Powerful laptops do get very hot. I had an Apple Powerbook G4 which I swear you could fry an egg on!
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
