High temperature, around 50 C when it does nothing, and around 55-60 C when does some usual simple work or navigating in social webs.

Best buy in 2018. Not most expensive, but with real 4 core it can work very hard, only if you want! I can work as a developer (from AC, in office) or as a journalist. Away from power in the nature.
