Default some question dealing with laptops

how hot could the mobile things run?
my cpu was like 78c, and the gpu was 98c.
i dont know if thats hot or average for a laptop.
Specs are on the bottom
and what resolution requires more than 256mb of dedicated ram on the gpu?
like some say that if i am using a large resolution, i should get a graphics card with 512mb.

You shouldn't need more than 256MB for display. Maybe playing a game or something. As far as temperature mine went so hot that it would leave my shorts wet.

Well mine ran pretty hot. I'm not too sure. Let's have a look on google.

I found that some average 50-70. Others 40-60. Your temps may be a bit high.
