YOGA 900 is burning my lap!

My 1 day old Yoga 900 heats up to the point where it is painful to have on my lap.    the area affected is the base running the whole width of the machine.  Is this normal?  when i fold back the screen, the screen also heats up (I guess heat transfer).   I have 6 year old laptop and it is only just starting to do this.  My other laptop can sit on my lap for hours and not heat up (it never heats up).  I am so disappointed.  I really love the look of this computer but "ouch!".

Welcome to the forum!

 

It sounds like maybe your Y900 is overheating. It would be helpful if you could install something like the free version of Speccy and post the temperatures it reports. The CPU and motherboard temperatures are shown on Speccy's Summary page.

Yes, this is normal for thin and light laptops like the Yoga 900. On the back, my unit, along with other units (I can see this in Yoga 900 reviews)- will run at around 100 degrees- which is normal if you're pushing the laptop hard.

OTOH the new Yogo 900s gets only slightly warm to the touch. Even more impressive is that Lenovo achieved this using a fanless design for this model.

 

So it is possible to have cool operation in a thin and light notebook if one makes the appropriate tradeoffs, e.g. slower CPU.

Should of said thin and light laptops with core i processors. The Yoga 900s with a core M is really impressive!
