    Better in what way? Those specs scream out HEAT and BATTERY ISSUES!

    Then, you would have to under volt, so that defeats the purpose.

    What's the use of putting in a Ferrari (if it could fit) engine in a Toyota, if all its going to do is go fast for a little then overheat and ultimately crash.

    unless your looking for a portable desktop, or if your looking to mod the notebook after you receive it or when it goes off warranty then I wouldn't suggest it.

    however if you want a tablet that can game, this thing is a beast (for a tablet of course)

    I'm talking halo 2 in 800x600 res and medium graphics settings with no anti aliasing at a smooth framerate.

    there is rumor that newer tx2's don't heat up as much as the older tx series did,

    if someone can confirm or deny that would be nice

    Those look like the specs of my tx2z-1300 that I bought in the USA in October. 4gb ram, Radeon, 500gb 7200rpm hard drive etc....

    I assure you, this thing is HOT. I had to send it back to HP once already because the GPU fried itself.

    Playing L4D2 it can get up to 90 degrees.

    Since getting it back from HP, I undervolted and limited it to 50% CPU (only effects my 3dmark06 by 100 points as the bottle neck is the GPU) It keeps the temp closer to 55 degrees

    How does undervolting defeat the purpose of having a "meaty" amd processor?

    Undervolting is different from underclocking. I had my tx2 undervolted, and it doesn't go in flames anymore like it used to (but still gets warm).
