I just ran Everest on my laptop and noticed the following temps -
CPU = 45c idle 55c under load and the hardrive is a constant 40c - 45c.
I expect the CPU to be a bit warmer with it being a laptop I'm more concerned about the hardrive. Is that too hot???? The laptop doesn't feel warm to the touch where the hardrive is housed.
Its a Compaq Presario 2500 with a 2.8 Celeron (Yeah I know, big mistake) with a pretty new Western Digital 40GB hardrive.
Desktop - AMD 2600+ Athlon , 1GB DDR, 256MB 9550 ATI Radeon, 120GB Hardrive.
Laptop - Compaq Presario 2500.
