Ive been hearing alot that the hp envy has some serious overheating issues and was wondering if this was true. I can't decide if I should sell my gaming computer (custom built) and buy the hp envy 17 3d so that I can have mobile gaming. I saw the asus with the 5870 but even though it was amazing for gaming the appearence of it was horrible IMO i just love the design of the envy thats why i want it and the 3d is a PLUS :pt1cable: 
so what you think should i sell my desktop and get it or keep my desktop

yeah but im in college and having a laptop is better because i can take it home when im on break go to class with it and take notes ext. basically portability even though it wont be that often. Or bring it to the tv area so browse and watch tv at the same time.

Going from 5870 desktop to 5850 mobile will give you a notable performance drop.So if you're OK with the performance loss,get the Envy;otherwise, keep your desktop and get a cheaper notebook instead.

And thank you :)
