Hello and thank you for perusing my topic. I was just wondering what programs I should use to burn-in or test the laptop. I want to make sure that there isn't going to be any problems with the laptop. I was thinking that I would run a memtest and 3dmark06 tests. Not sure what else I should do to stress the system to verify all is well. If you could leave links to the programs that you suggest, I would appreciate it. Here are the specs for the laptop:

I have 2 of these laptops that I helped our swim team purchase for running big swim events (almost up to Olympic level). So I'm just trying to make sure that I have a stable and reliable laptop. Most of the software needed, isn't taxing (by any means), but just want to make sure everything works well. Thanks again for any input that you can provide. :sol:
