HDD is a good candidate, but also check for dust issues. Newer laptops now run heatpipes to enclosed heatinks (similiar to the ones that cool mobo VRM's) that are in the fan's flow path. More than once I've opened up a slow/glitchy laptop to find those clogged with dust, even those the fan exit on the bottom of the laptop seemed clear.
