comment How often do netbook parts break?
@kurresmack: One of the peculiarities of my workplace is that about half of the workers take their gear out into the field, where physical trauma is more common. The other half tend to stay in the building with its extremely high-grade electrical system, so we don't have motherboard/power supply/ram failures very often (those tend to be power surge related). If your area is rich in electrical storms, you might have more of that sort of problem.

comment How often do netbook parts break?
@kurresmack: Based on anecdotal evidence, just like your's ;) Still we have more than 200 laptops in my work environment, and I've never had to replace RAM, so it's pretty deep anecdotal evidence. A good 80% of the problems we have are hdd related, and most of the others are catastrophic damage situations. Dropped, run over, spilled on, etc.

Yea, and a lot of it will install itself, given the opportunity.

@CheesePls: I love SCP partly because it supports the recursive flag that lets you move subdirectories without scripting. If the server you're copying to allows ssh, I'd recommend giving it a try.

comment My system show extremely hot processor temperature
+1: Misapplied thermal paste is a very common cause of this sort of behaviour. You should have a very very very thin layer...It's only there to make sure there is no air between the processor and the heatsink.

comment Where does power consumption go in a computer?
Heat energy is almost always a waste product: if we could move electrons around inside a CPU without creating heat, we'd do it in a second.
