If I want a laptop that stays fairly cool, should I look for a weaker processor and graphics card? Does more powerful equal hotter? What about RAM? I'm thinking the less RAM the laptop has the cooler it will stay. Any ideas?
power is directly proportional to heat emitted yes, but change is very insignificant. Portable computer all get a little hot when running. You can buy laptop cooler to address the problem, its a device you attach to the bottom of the laptop.
