2710 i7 etc Working temperature concerns. Environment 30 to 35C

Jump to solution
Good day Seriously considering purchase of the above product. It will be used in temperature environment of 30C plus for 6 months of the year. I am asking myself shall I purchase or buy another 8500 which some might say, has better cooling etc. Concerned.

Assuming you will be using Windows 8. This OS does a much better job of minimizing CPU loadings. At idle conditions, the CPU and GPU usages are both near 0%. Operating temperatures are about 10°C lower with my laptops than with Windows 7. I wouldn't worry.

Thank you for 'finding' that information for me.

It is a difficult decision for me. I would prefer that the

computer is not working 'hard'. Life span etc.

On the plus side, no gaming, no multi media programmes

playing at the same time, comms. and rich Internet video only.

Regards
