    Speedfan is reporting that while i am writing this the temp is 51C. it has sometimes spiked to 61C while doing almost nothing. It is a laptop and should i be worried?

    Have you tried to clean out the accumulated dust from the insides, particularly the CPU heatsink and fan?

    If you just bought it, it's still under warranty. Take it back and have it checked out.
