As my laptop has pretty much become a stone-age artifact, I was thinking of buying myself a new one. I will be going for a gaming laptop and as we all know they have a tendency to heat-up very quickly. I am not familiar with the technologies that are implemented to counter overheating.
So, first of all, I would like to know whether they actually do anything to counter overheating (aside for turning off the laptop abruptly ). Is there any particular hardware element that I should be looking for?
