Lenovo Basic and Pro Dock Design Flaw / Suggestion

2014-07-12, 17:15 PM

Just and idea.  Not sure if this can get back to the design team?


Lenovo laptops have their CPU and venting to the top left of the keyboard.


1. Both the Basic and Pro Dock have the laptop release mechanism directly blocking the CPU venting. This does not appear to be helping convect heat away. Consider moving the release mechanism somewhere else in the next iteration?


2. Would it make sense to integrate a cooling fan into the docking station?


Ex-IBMer.  My 10 prior laptops were either Lenovo X or T Series laptops.  They included the highest specification Intel CPU at the time.  The use case is not graphics intensive.  All 7 of the 10 laptops suffered overheating issues after 2 years.  Have stuck with Lenovo as like the track button and computing power to weight ratio.
