How do i know if my laptop is too hot? If i play games on my lap the thing gets so hot that i can't touch the bottom for more than a few seconds. Is this common for "gaming" laptops? My old HP got hot before, but i never played games on it and it was not too diesel of a computer. I tried using speedfan, and it reads both temps at around 38C...is this just what 38C feels like to the touch?
