Addressing hot issue of PC temperatures

How hot can I let my computer become? I have a notebook and sometimes I really do think I could fry an egg on it. Is there a temperature at which it becomes dangerous for the machine? Is there a way to know what the temperature is? How concerned should I be about this? I have heard friends use the term overclocking. What is that?

Slim laptop sacrifices features for portability

If everyone in Hong Kong bought and used notebooks as they were actually meant to be used - carrying them from one venue to another for taking notes or to make presentations - then only models such as Hewlett-Packard's new Compaq nc4010 would sell.

Few people in Hong Kong own cars, so the only way to get a notebook from point A to point B is to lug it.
