    Tips for keeping my laptop from overheating?

    My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8935 and overheats really easily. I'm afraid that it will die really soon. Any tips for cooling it down a little? Like a fan, keep it on a wood desk or something like that. My computer is 3 years old and still kicking for now.

    Get a cooling pad/stand - they're pretty inexpensive and usually just require a USB port. Also make sure that the ventilation holes aren't obstructed.

    Try not to use it for extended periods of time, and if you're seriously worried it might croak, back-up your important data.

    Try to break up your fapping sessions into smaller 15-minute intervals!

    Seriously, though, as Faust said, a cooling pad is probably the best idea. Keeping it on a hard, flat surface is also ideal (e.g., the wood desk you mention). If you keep it on a bed or something that contours around the vents, it will certainly obstruct the ventilation.

    Buy a Mac. Yeah, I said it.

    I had a series of about 5 Toshiba PC laptops, none of them lasted longer than 3 years in any sort of productive capacity. Ditched Windows, got a MacBook Pro, haven't looked back.
