My Lenovo u410 started heating around the right palm rest minutes after I unpacked it! I am devastated, because I bought this for programming, and it's impossible to type on this for extended periods with the surface getting so hot. I haven't run any serious programs on it yet, so the processor has been pretty much idle.
I've been Googling this problem, and found only one person who had this issue too. Is this is a defect in the product? Why aren't many others getting this problem?
I bought it via newegg.com and as per their policy you can't return a product once you've opened it.
Specs: Core i5, 6 GB RAM, 750 GB harddisk. Running Windows 8.
