    Dell Vostro 1500

    This notebook is very cheap (major price/performance contender) but I want to ask a question about airflow...

    Where does the air get drawn into the notebook? Is it at the bottom of the notebook?

    The notebook itself only uses one fan and keeps relatively low temperature unless gaming - it draws air out of the under left side of the laptop, and blows it directly out of the left side of the laptop... and it only blows once in a while and blows on fall blast during gaming.

    It blows occasionally under most usage from my experience.

    I was playing with the wifi switch and it started to blow..the air was very hot but tolerable.

    It's pretty much always warm so i would recommend a laptop cooler if you're planning on using it for lon periods of time or on your lap.
