How hot will a 30w soldering iron get?

Nick Henderson asked:

I appear to be having some difficulty with de-soldering on my laptops motherboard.
I have a faithfull 30w soldering iron but it won't melt the solder.
I have read online that solder mounts at about 190 degrees and a 30w iron should reach temperatures of about 450 degrees, so what could be the problem?
