Questions about my Laptop

Hello, like 5 months ago, I have bought new laptop,

 

Samsung NP550P7C 17.3" Series 5 Notebook, with following hardware:

 

Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 3610QM (2.30GHz, 6MB L3 Cache)

Graphic: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 650M Graphics, Optimus™ technology 2GB DDR3

Storage: 1TB S-ATA II Hard Drive (5400RPM), BluRay Drive

Memory: 6GB DDR3 System Memory at 1600MHz (4GB x 1 + 2GB x 1)

System: Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

 

HD Audio

SoundAlive™

JBL 3 Speakers (With sub-Woofer)

1.3 megapixel HD Webcam

17.3" HD+ LED Display (1600 x 900), Anti-Reflective

 

Price when purchased: 900£ (~1350 USD, ~1050 euro)

 


 

I bought it mainly for development purposes, but wanted to play some games occasional, since mentioned hardware is not bad, I can play latest games but the problem is that laptop is getting REALLY hot (on the left side of the laptop), and by saying really hot I mean it seriously, once when I touched accidentally HDMI port which is located on the left side, it was hot as hell. I do understand that in really performance expensive games (ex. GTA 4 its normal that laptop is getting really hot) but even while playing fun older games (ex. Battlefield Heroes) its getting so hot as well, that sometimes I am bit worried. Sometimes played for few hours, never had any crash or any warn about temperature, but still its but weird for me.

 

I am not hardware specialist, so excuse me if I lack knowledge, any hints?

It's not something to worry about, i would suggest you to buy a laptop cooler as Jaha mentioned above. Also where do place the laptop? Because some materials like wood keep the heat with the result of making the laptop get a big temperature.

Thanks for replys, In fact I am using cooler, forget to mention, but its really cheap version I found once in "poundland" it has 3 little fans but from what I see it does no difference (Shop where you can buy everything for a 1£ :D)  Anyway, the one JaharakaL mentioned looks much more professional, I will try to find it on ebay and buy it.

 

About where do I keep my laptop, tried various "surfaces" but always the same.

You think it might be full of dust after like 5 months already?

 

Edit: when playing games, my GPU temp seems to be constant at 72 C.

Dust is the main problem for Laptops.

Buy a good cooler(before, give it to a pc hardware center to clear it from dust) and be carefull where you're placing the laptop as Grim said.
