Got the refurb 1012, 250GB/Broadcom HD, higher res screen, and this thing runs way hot, and I want to check with others to see if this is normal before I jump through the hoops to send it back. Noticed it after installing Ubuntu 10.10 NBE as dual boot)
Case temp -- keyboard I'm seeing 100 degrees F just idling. Case temp on the back under the CPU is 130-140 degrees F. idling, I saw temps of 145 degrees extrernal during the Ubuntu kernel upgrade.
Temps measured using a Raytek MT5 infrared thermometer.
Back in windows, CoreTemp32 shows CPU Temperature idling around 64 degrees C. That's C not F.
That just seems high to me. I've seen other folks talk about the N450 idling in the mid 30's. after all, Tj max on the n450 is 100C.
Any thoughts? am I just expecting too much here?
