Ask for optimal daily usage (Y520)

2018-02-15, 4:43 AM

I want to ask what's best daily usage time for gaming laptops. I'm using Y520IKBN 80WK.

This is my first gaming laptop, after years using PC for gaming since 2014 (which has lower performance and capability than this laptop).

Actually I had a laptop, Acer Aspire 4530, bought for college use and sometimes gaming, in 2008 and finally died in 2015. Two years until its death, the laptop runs very hot (yes, it has AMD processor, but it was hotter than usual) that I need to blow the heat using desk fan. 

 

So, how many hours I should use this laptop, in order to keep its longevity and performance?

I'm using this for work (07.00 - 15.00, sometimes less), mainly for CorelDraw and Photoshop, and gaming after going back home. I'm using this almost always plugged in with Conservation Mode on to keep battery life.

Thanks, for help. So I assume it's safe to turn it on for 12-15 hours daily (?)
8 hours for work, the rest is gaming.
