You bought a laptop, eh?  Cool.  Do give us a review when you get it.  Not too many laptop reviews that I have seen.

Ohhh that's nice. Heck, that rig has far more horsepower than what this HP has, and I bet yours didn't come with about 400MB of Crapware autoinstalled either. Color me jealous. That's a gorgeous machine.

I also want to know how hot it gets, too. The laptop I am using ATM gets hot enough to boil water... I have to use a cookie sheet and a cardboard box between me and the laptop bottom it burns so much.
