Specs: Win xp, PIII 192k
About 2 weeks I bought this pc but I wanted to know if is normal that the zone below the keyboard heats. I feel through the vent grids a fan is working however after 1 hours the heat is strong. The part where the battery is , is warm only but going far from it, heats. Hope you may clarify this?

Examine the vent. If the airflow appears to be blocked, clean out the dust or whatever have accumulated.

By the way I think you are aware that netbooks are not like notebooks or laptops where heat dissipation problems are at the minimum Netbooks are built so cheaply you can dispose it if it's getting too hot for you.

There is something I forgot to mention and itheats more when the charging adapter is connected and the netbook is being used.
With no adapter it is warm.
What do you think?

That's quite normal. When you charge battery the cells in the battery emits heat meaning they are being energized. If you leave the adapter in all the time, the heat will be much less noticed.

Most companies suggest that you remove the battery from the unit if you are just using it like a desktop. It should save life on the battery and make less heat also.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
