Flex 3 Issues - case noise, heat, fan

2015-07-01, 21:19 PM

Just got the Flex 3 15.6" (i7, 1 TB HDD + 8 GB SSD), and I am noticing a few issues:


1) When I push down with a finger on the base underneath the hard drive area, it gives in and makes a clicking noise (the case, not the hard drive). Kind of annoying, especially since I hear it sometimes when I pick up the laptop depending on where I hold it.

2) It runs rather hot. I feel the heat on my leg pretty quickly.

3) The fan is often noticeable, staying on quite a bit and loud enough to hear (but not loud).

I think it is defective. You need to apply for a guarantee or to open the case and check everything. But if you do it yourself, then maybe you can lose the guarantee.
