Way too many overheating issues with this laptop, do a simple google search for the model number and 'problems'. HP is doing nothing to help the customer!

Nice while it lasted for 16 months

Had this laptop for 1 year and 4 months and it overheated and died

Initially, this thing was amazing. It worked like a champ when it came to everything that wasn't a very graphics intensive game

Overheating! Also, after the 4 months of dream-like performance, it practically self-destructed. The BIOS update killed it, and HP revived it, only to have the sound card die a few months later and then the video card croak a month after that
