New Oh, this thing is far from modern
I haven't bought a new laptop for myself since work started providing them. I'm not a gamer, so streaming video has been the most taxing thing I'm doing. Now with HD and (I'm guessing) some of the newer codecs being a bit harder on the CPU - onboard video, so no help there - I'm finally getting to the limits of what it can handle.

         Well, there are lots of ways, but they're all third-party - (pwhysall)
         Got heat problems? -NT - (pwhysall) - (5)
             Laptop shut off while watching HBOMax last night - (drook) - (4)
