    i've been playing quite a bit of BF4 and the cpu and gpu don't reach 80 celsius according to Open Hardware Monitor and Coretemp. Cpu on a few cores have reached as high as 79 celsius.

    I'm very happy about that. So glad I didn't buy the SLI y510p cause i've read they get really hot temps in the mid to high 90's.

    How are the temperatures around the WASD keys though? As stated previously, the CPU is located right underneath there.

    its interesting that the haswell processor is that hot, is that normal? ori is it just because of the design of the laptop?

    the older sandybridge processors never reaches those max temps, even under load.

    Well it all goes into the architecture. Haswell was a revamp of the 22nm chip design so basically you could consider it an overclock in simple terms when actually it was a slight bump in clock speeds but more of a back end change then that. The new Broadwell processors should be a new architecture of 14nm which means less power and heat.

    Just my samsung galaxy s3. I bought a 5 dollar adapter/tripod thing on amazon. The adapter also fitted on a professional sony tripod so that was very nice. Not a whole lot of shaking on my video.

    Then i did a few edits on sony vegas 13 on the lenovo y50. also, used gpu acceleration to render and it only took 28 min to finish! I tried to render it on my old asus and it was gonna take 8 hours!
