Cooling system problem for a new computer.......unacceptable......horrible design

Summary: It has been just over a month the computer is already giving me warning about heating problems and asking me to take it to the service center. I read the forum and tried removing Toshiba utility software, tried updating drivers and none of them seem to have fixed this problem. It is so annoying that this message pops every 2 mins. If I am not able to fix, I am going to have to return this piece of junk.
Summary: Do not buy this laptop. I bought mine brand new and it had a faulty hard drive that was replaced by Toshiba TWICE and still to this day doesn't work properly and comes up as faulty on a diagnostic test. They're just going to keep replacing the hard drive until the warranty runs out rather than acknowledging the fact that they made a laptop that doesn't work and replacing it. Toshiba will leave you with a headache for years to come. DO NOT BUY THIS. You will regret it.
Summary: I bought this to replace a sony vaio and after returning the HP 360 13 inch convertible (steer clear of that one). The audio and graphics are great on this. The touchscreen is really responsive (even though I still hate windows 8). I have not had any problems with overheating. After my miserable experience with the HP 360, I am actually pretty happy with this computer.
Summary: We've been disappointed with our e45t-a4200. It's loaded with bloatware as noted, but the main complaint is that the computer has suffered from an overheating warning for many months, which we tolerated because it came and went. Now the fan has died, and the computer is one month past warranty. The screen and form factor are nice, but I'd stay away due to these significant problems.
Summary: For some reason the mouse pad will just stop working and have to go through a lengthy process of disabling it and then renabling it to get it to work (or sometimes restart). It is EXTREMELY loud and sometimes goes into psycho-mode where the fan gets as loud as a person speaking. Very distracting. i bought it in July and I'm sure I'll have to replace it in a few more months - meaning it will have lasted just about a year. POS.
Summary: For the love of god do not buy this laptop. It is an over priced, underpowered, fancy looking piece of crap. It will not only struggle to run multiple tabs in your web browser, but even watching a video is a struggle for this laptop. God forbid you try to do something else on it when you're watching a video. Sure the touch screen is entertaining for a while, but your never use it after a few weeks and it eats battery life like no bodies business.
