    My M200 gets very hot, especially in tablet mode.



    i wonder will the "hotness" hurt the tablet?!?

    i love my tablet and the "hotness" is scaring me.

    i usually pefer not turning off my computer, is that bad for tablet PC ?

    lunlun,

    I would not worry about the heat provided there is no obstruction of the fan vent on your M200. Your machine has a Dothan Pentium M CPU which will run even even cooler than the new Sonoma generation machines. My guess is that your heat is generated by the NVIDIA GPU. At any rate, there is no reason to worry provided the machine has sufficient ventilation.

    On the subject of "leaving your tablet on". When you turn the machine off, the soldered components inside cool and contract. When you turn it on, these components expand with the heat. The rule of thumb is to try to avoid turning the machine "on" and "off" constantly. If you are using it all day, I would probably just shut it down at night, then boot it up the next day when you are ready to use it. Hope that helps. ;)
