I have a Core i7 Q740 with a native speed of 1.73GHz. My previous Dell
had a Q730. Both were exhibiting the same problems.
Since this is a laptop, I would expect temperatures to be higher than in
a desktop box. So up to 50-60°C CPU temperature while idling and 90°C
under load may be acceptable. But the behavior the computer is
exhibiting definitely is not acceptable.
