Ok first of all i have this Fujitsu N Series notebook. it is the 3010 model with all the goodies but the built in wifi. Anyways, i noticed that on the bottom of my notebook where the ram is placed, it gets real hot. Its a small tab with a screw that when removed reveals the ram slots and the stick of ram. My question is this, since my laptop is turned off about 2 times a year (w00t) will it envntually damage the system with all the heat? Or is it ok, seeing as my ram is being cooled with the internal fan (right?) I have an Antec cooler thing also but i hate to use it cause its so damn clunky and HUGE! Any opinions?

just make sure that iar can get to the intakes (usually on the bottom of the laptop)

if you are really worried, you can get a laptop cooler, which is basically fans under the laptop

Yea i said i have the Antec Laptop cooler. Ive ran the laptop for a long time and nothing really happen to it. but im affraid of the heat it creates. if the laptop just sits there and there nothing blocking the passages underneath then it should be fine right? i mean why would they sell a laptop thats gonna malfunction cause air isnt entering the system?

If your laptop is stable, don't worry about it man. most laptops get really hot these days.

My brand new Dell gets pretty toasty after a while.

Don't worry about it.

I've had a very hot desktop processor in mine running for over three years and there's no damage yet.

i wouldnt worry about it then...just put it in stand-by when not really using it
have the monitor shut-off instead of a screen saver, and have the disks spin-down after some period of time

What's the ambient air temp? If you're 70-F, you should be okay. If you're at 80-F, then you could be decreasing the life of the notebook components. Heat= t3h bad.

If you're really concerned you can always call up the company and tell them and ask them if this is normal. Some LTs get very hot at the bottom.
