@zyzzy No worries, every time I hear someone like yourself enjoying it, makes it all worth while
As always anyway I can help you out with Blender-boot let me know, would you be interested in reviewing the Reviewers Preview version which is nearly ready many more added features changes etc.
@penix1 Thats a very cool laptop shame about its overheating issues, have you tried anything like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-F5L001er ... B000W0D15O
? Your definitely right about rendering being the best test, I think that is what has just killed my laptop, its in for repairs as its still under warranty thank god. Lucky enough I have this PC that my beyond awesome fiancée brought for me, otherwise I would be without a system (other than her laptop which doesn't like rendering but I still use it to test Blender-boot as its the only low end system I have access too). Just wondering with your HP if you use the touch screen for sculpting, textures or anything Blender related? I hope this new heat sink solves your problems, shame its ATI (I am in the same boat) otherwise you could try GPU cycles and it might be less harsh to your system.
