They USED to. This was a while back. And the most common overheating problem was the Graphics chip, not the CPU. This has been resolved years ago.
As for the laptop itself, it is not a bad laptop. Can you do full gaming on it? No. But who would expect to do that on ANY $450 laptop anyway? It all depends on what you are looking for. Want a laptop for basix stuff, this is not a bad deal. No, it doe snot have the latest and greatest but I find some of the negative comments about this thing pretty funny. Some compare it practically to an Alienware type laptop and yea, compared to that, this one sucks. But now compare it to a notebook and it will kick it's ass...
Besides, the blue-ray is a cool feature and with the HDMI you can hook it up to the tv.
