    Hi again, guys! Been awhile.
    We finally got cable DSL. (Dont know how we went without so long..) and the Dell is flying except that it still gets hot and slows down now and again. Can anyone reccomend a good inexpensive laptop cooling pad? I have seen anywhere from $10 to $40.

    Thanks! d

    I can't answer your question (although I am interested in the answer since I'm getting a new Dell notebook next week).

    If you delete the extra "" characters before the single-quotes and double-quotes, your sig will look normal again.

    Newegg has them. Looks, um, pretty cool.

    OK. So why doesn't the laptop come with adequate cooling? This is not an expensive item, but it appears to take up a USB port and also real estate. Am I missing something? I thought when you bought a system or laptop from Dell (or anybody) cooling was taken care of with the design.
