Push the clock cycles up, and the CPU's in the puppies generate a lot
of heat. And the amount of heat a 1.5Ghz or better CPU has to
dissipate is astonishing.
Sort of makes a nonsense of the 'laptop' appellation now though ... I
mean if the price of having them on your laptop is as high as it was
for this bloke!
