    Those who have this model how hot does it run? Mineruns hot the underside is like the bottom of a 'just boiled' kettle, just put a thermometer on top reads 40d centigrade, if I put my finger underneath the back by the scarts can only hold it there for 13 seconds till it begins to sting. Not very scientific runs a bit cooler in standby when hard drive is not spinning, but gives off the hot smell that old valve type TV sets give off, Any thoughts only had it since last Friday last one Argos had as new model now out, everything works fine, just worried about long term reliability. Cheers

    just sitting on an beech effect chipboard shelf in open, however raised it up on by 1 inch earlier tonight and it feels cooler, think this is cos the fan has now got more room to breath. its now what I would call normal to touch. thermometer on top of case now reading 28degrees centigrade after 4 hours!!! Hope this is all it needed.
