Re: [PLUG] very large laptop


Have you considered an inexpensive cooling pad to sit it on?  Like
a thick mouse pad, but big enough for the entire laptop to sit on.
Blows air up at the bottom of the laptop.  Worked wonders for an
old 17-inch HP laptop my wife had years ago.  The laptop was
built cheap, I think, with no attention to heat.  Had a non-laptop
CPU or something even.  Always overheated.  The pad solved it.
Might still be lying around here somewhere, though I suspect its
long gone.  See:

A 17" display with 16GB RAM, but under $1k, pretty much narrows it down to one of HP's laptops that uses a low-end AMD processor.  You may be able to find a Dell at that price.

But right now is not the time to be looking for a new laptop. There's huge demand as companies are expanding their telework, so you'll likely encounter high prices or long shipping delays.
