That makes a whining fan during intensive work like photo editing or gaming an unwanted but common occurrence, especially when combined with the summer heat. If you’re tired of dealing with an overheating laptop, look into getting a laptop cooling pad, an accessory that’ll add some cooling capacity as well…
