Philips 12NB5800 gets very hot is this normal?

I have bought a second hand Philips 12NB5800 and noticed that it gets very hot, so hot that you can barely touch it and when it was used on a plastic messy mat it buckled the mat. In addition the touchpad is difficult to use and needs a fair amount ofpressure applying and then it only moves slowly. Is this a problem withthis models?
I have only got few days to decide whether or not to keep this laptop and so I need some help please.
Thank you in advance.

    Thank you I will try to see if i can change the fan in the bios and also adjust the speed and sensitivity of the touchpad, but I think that might be unfixable as it looks very worn and even has a mark of use on it.

The devices inside pc generate a lot of heat especially proccessor.
the fan is usually located on or nearby the processor though by default is programmed to only start at certain temps..
you can instruct the fan to be on constantly in bios(setup at start)
the mouse speed and sensitivity can be adjusted (mouse properties) located in control panel.( click mouse icon in control panel)

    no matter how it looks it can still be configured.go to control panel ...double click on mouse icon to access properties .... in properties youll see headers....buttons,pointers,pointer options(for speed/sensitivity)wheel,hardware and device settings.

    to access bios hit whatever key shown on screen for setup at boot.

    I have a philips freevents 12nb5800 laptop and the keyboard doesnt work properly. Some keys dont work and some only work intermittently

    The Philips Freevents 12nb5800 is actually a Twinhead J12S
    The XP drivers are hard to find but they are on the Twinhead Austrailia website here;
    I installed the intel VGA driver from this which allowed we to use two screens.

    I just bought a second hand upright 20cubic foot frigidair freezer. Its been on for about 3 hours and it feels really hot to the touch on both sides. Did I just get taken or is this normal? It was running...

    Did you lay it down when you moved it?
    If so you need to leave it standing up for 12-24 hours before you turn it on.

    Or you may have just been ripped of.

    Compressor very hot + water leaking

    This is not normal. The coolant charge is low which means it leaked out some where. Return it.

    Turning on TV after power outage

    Not sure what you mean by "older", but I assume it's a CRT display. It takes some time for a picture tube to come up from a completely cold start. It has to get all of those electrons hot enough to start flying around, and also build up a high voltage on the screen. You don't notice it in normal operation because the power button doesn't really turn everything off, but just puts the set in standby mode. Unplugging, though, lets everything cool off completely.

    If you're talking real antiques, with tube-type amplifiers, then the warmup time could be even longer. I remember as a kid watching the blank screen for a couple of minutes before a picture appeared.

    What you describe sounds like normal behavior for a CRT television. Not sure what's up with that flickering red light, though.
