off topic: Do you like the Asus? I’m thinking about getting one for the wife for Christmas. From what I saw in the store, most of them have the cooling intake and exhaust vents in the rear, mostly under the bottom of the screen / hinge area.
I’m mostly happy with it. It’s got an i7, 16 GB of RAM and an nVidia GTX 850. My only beef is that when I’m playing higher end games it tends to run hot. I usually keep the lid closed because I have it hooked up to a 27" monitor when I’m using it on the desk but it tends to overheat when I play those games so I leave it open. between that and the cooling pad it’s sitting on that’s enough to keep it mostly cool.
