I have a Toshiba Satellite L755 laptop with an i3 2350M processor; CPU-Z shows the technology as 32 nm. I got this laptop in 2012 and have been using it sparingly since October last year, when I got a new Dell laptop.

The i3 processor has always run between 45 and 50 degrees for as long as I can remember; I don't remember ever seeing it drop below 40 degrees. Sometimes it goes up to 60 and even 70 when under load.

The Dell laptop I bought last year has an i5 4200U processor; CPU-Z shows the technology as 22nm. SpeedFan always shows its temperature at around 30 degrees; the fluctuations are generally + / - 5 degrees, but most of the time its at 29 or 30 degrees.

When I had bought the Dell i5 laptop, I had thought that since it has a more powerful processor, it would run at higher temperatures. Instead, its the other way round.

Is it because it is newer technology? Is it also because Dell does something to bring down temperatures that Toshiba doesn't? I've already run a blower to remove dust from both laptops.

Is the 45 to 50 degree temperature normal for the i3? The reason I'm asking is because I want to download the offline Wikipedia; last time I downloaded it, it was around 9 GBs (compressed file). On the 1 mbps connection I have, it will take many hours, and so I thought I'd download it on the Toshiba laptop since its old and I've busted its battery by using it too much while keeping it connected to the power line. It is only when I ran SpeedFan on both laptops that I noticed that the i5 is cooler. :)

The dell laptop is having 4200U processor which is ULV processor that runs at 17 watts the processor of thosiba uses a 35w processor . You may feel the toshiba laptop may run hotter as it uses a processor that consumes more power and also its 3 years old and the thermal paste might have hardened and some dust might have accumulated in its fan.

Hi Guys, I want a super slim laptop. I need it to carry in my DSLR backpack.
It should read SD cards, have enough disk space to store about 3 days of RAW photo clicks(in case of SSD), should run Lightroom fluidly if not Photoshop. The new Macbook comes close but it have Intel Core M processor and no SD card. And also both Macbook Air and new Macbook are very costly.
Please suggest some alternative.

Try putting a tiny drop of machine oil on the fans's axel where it sits in the winding. Also clean the dust off of the fan. And don't use local paste. It dries up within 40-50 hours of use and you need to re-apply it again. :|

Acer laptops in general are fine. But I'd rather go for a battery that's user removable because most batteries conk out in 2 odd years .

Here a couple more laptops to check out:

Thanks for the reply - Then this is the reason of the low price - Wish Acer or some other manufacturer may release some i5 Laptop at this sweet price.

After seeing the spec, that lead to another que

Which is better - i3 Processor with Dedicated Graphics Chip or i5 Processor with integrated Graphics (such as the mentioned Acer) when Gaming is not a priority ?

If the configuration suffices for you, go for a screen replacement, that too from a local store. You can get it done within 3k.
