It's also okay to be bulky, but not 50 pounds or anything . For the most part it will just be resting in my lap as I'm on the couch or in bed or whatever, so it doesn't have to be ultra thin or anything.
I do hope that it would stay cool even under pressure of 1080p gaming. I don't want another laptop that likes to shut off all the time because it gets too hot. I don't mind undervolting the processor a bit, but I'd just prefer something to work right out of the box if possible.
