Hi, i am going to buy new laptop tomorrow
I have a HP laptop which is not behaving well now, it has broken fan, so it gets so hot, and 100% cpu usage occasionally, the model is G32-301TX
I thought i would not get a HP again, but an Envy catches my eyes for its design it looks really beautiful to me

but i afraid the exact same problems will happen to me, like getting hot easily and overheating easily, also i afraid it may slow down when it gets hot as i do play games, but i heard now adays processor slowed down when it gets hot
is this laptop okay?
or maybe other alternatives? like Toshiba or Asus?
I don't think these two designs beat Envy, but is the brands better than HP?

Well the GPU in that one is a middle class card so it should do OK with games at 1366x768 medium to high settings. More demanding games may need lower settings. I have heard good things about the newer ENVY laptops but do not own one as I do not game on my laptop to me that is what my desktop is for.
