Should I do a burn-in on my new factory system?
It's very exciting for a guy like me to get a new computer, because my budget doesn't normally allow even parts upgrades, but I was able to get a new laptop that is pretty good.
But I was thinking, maybe I should run some burn in tests, such as running memtest 86+. But what other tests would you all suggest I run? I tried running F@H on it with no problems, but I don't want to run this thing that hard for normal use, so I stopped doing that. This computer will hopefully get me through college, or at least part of it...
I'd like to test and see how well it upclocks with just one core being loaded (to see if it will really reach 3.1 GHz), and see how stable it is under full load.
I'd also like to test the drive (hello, Koitsu) if I can...

I would on a desktop, but don't burn-in the CPU or GPU on a laptop. Probably asking for more trouble than it's worth.

Laptops have a much shorter life then a desktop so overclocking or running extensive testing is just eating up your useful life on the machine. If you wanted to overclock something get a desktop.
