When I ask people what they look for in a laptop, they usually list portability, screen size, processor speed, memory. But one thing I rarely hear is that the laptop should not overheat. Now I know you’re thinking - that’s not really a surprise. The cooling tech isn’t exactly a visible feature. That’s a shame because without good cooling and venting a laptop is probably not as well put together on the inside as it is on the outside. You can have the latest laptop, but if it overheats it simply isn’t going run well or last long enough. Today’s laptops allow you to work almost anywhere. They’re always on and are great for productivity and for personal entertainment, but have you thought about what might be happening to it on the inside?

Guest blog by Stephen Miller, Lenovo Ambassador and SMB champion In many ways, there have never been better opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses to grow. Globalization means potential customers don’t have to live near a company’s facilities or even within the same country. Fewer market barriers and better communication options mean it is easier than ever to reach a worldwide audience, collaborate with far-flung co-workers and generally expand the boundaries of the business. The rise of social media has helped bring customers closer, while opening new marketing opportunities. Social platforms allow businesses to be more targeted and effective in their communications, and enable SMBs to interact directly and immediately with customers.
