Im just browsing the internet and reading, but not even 2 hours yet, its already hot on the keyboard and bottom side. Is it dirty/dusty inside and needs internal cleaning? does it need upgrade? Running from the background is iStat 5, avira antivirus and im browsing the web with safari. Help!

Probably just needs a cleaning. The small opening to the thermal sink gets clogged with dust/hair. Do you find the laptop is running slower or just hotter? What ever you do though, don't blow the dust into the laptop..That can make it worse. Instead, you need to open the case and blow it out.  Try this guide. Just be careful and take your time.

Yeah it seems like it is getting slower nowadays. Okay I will open it once I get my tools lol. I am also planning to upgrade it pretty soon just waiting for enough $$$. What else can you suggest?
