I've upgraded from the T to the W510. Yes the w510 runs a bit hotter at the back, but remember the W is a workstation. The T510 is a better laptop, the W510 is a powerhouse.
The keyboard seemed to be quieter and smoother than on the T510 I had. As for the sceen-I love it. The colours are too hot, but nothing calibration dosn't fix. Did you not try the medium setting for the text? That gives you HD+ sized text. I really love the screen.
The first thing you should always do is dump do a clean OS install and get rid of that Hitachi crap in there. You can get Crucial SSD's for about £100 now. As soon as I did a clean install the explorer problem went.
Not shure if you have a fulty unit or if you just find the heat too much, but I would stick with the W if you do graphics work. That screen is better than many IPS pannels-sharp clear vibrant and bringht. Depends, whats more important to you.
A great screen with the abblily to RAM up to 16GB or
A cooler laptop with a screen thats a little blue that can only take 8GB.
My advise is get a new W510. Take the drive out, rebuild and see how you go. Those FHD pannels are like gold dust at the moment.
