I live in San Diego, California. The weather is mild.
I went ahead and replaced my surface pro 3 i5 for an i7 at the Microsoft store. While the computer was installing the latest firmware it showed the temperature icon and shut off. It wouldn't turn it back on for about fifteen minutes, even though I was pressing the on button. Is this normal?
Later, I ran Postmark and while running the i7 reached 90 C.
90C during regular use is way too hot but when benchmarking is hot but not dangerous.
