    To me that seems pretty normal, but it mainly depends on the system specs. If its a low spec general office use laptop, it may be a bit too high.

    Is this the one we're talking about?

    Maybe give it a good spray of compressed air to clean up some of the dust build up.. but if what you're talking in celcius then yes, it seems slightly higher than normal, but should be bareable..

    I had a computer similar to the one she has. It is absolutly normal.. She just needs to clean out the fan, and it is doing that because either...

    A.) When it sits on somthing the air has trouble moving through..
    B.) Fan is dirty or doesn't work right..

    But yeah, with laptops you normaly would have to clean of the fan because all the dust that builds up in it.
