I would be rather reluctant to use a cooler of that size with an i7 without a fan somewhere providing a good air-flow. Thanks for the link though..

comment Is a laptop computer going to save its extra cost compared to a desktop computer due to lower electricity consumption, after more than one year?
If a laptop is plugged in, most of the power saving functions (esp. CPU throttling and display dimming) tend to be disabled anyway. I suspect laptops might actually have [i]worse[/i] power consumption in some cases, as they are often not to be designed for high-performance efficiency.

comment Why dont Macs have hard drive activity lights?
I suspect hard drives having LEDs was mainly for consistency with floppy drives, rather than any actual functional purpose. Modern OSs read/write all the time, so they are not any more functional than power lights..

Firefox has a safe-mode which allows you to disable troublesome extensions. How to run it depends in your platform though..
