After streaming video for 15 minutes, the touchpad measured a frigid 82 degrees, the keyboard an icy 81 degrees, and the bottom a cool 87 degrees Fahrenheit.

The software also allows you to configure the dual-array microphones for a single voice or group chat.
Performance With its 2. The GB, 7,rpm hard drive booted into Windows 7 Professional in a speedy 48 seconds, much faster than the second category average.
At autodetect settings, the T provided a solid 61 frames per second when playing World of Warcraft, a little less than the 86 fps category average, but much higher than the 41 fps that the Dell Latitude E got and the 52 fps scored by the HP EliteBook p, and impressive given that most notebooks in the category have lower resolution screens.
