Thinkpad E475 Cooling

Howdy,
I just ordered a E475 and after the fact I realized there is no side exhaust vent on it. Where does the exhaust vent at? Is it venting at the hinge like the MacBook's? Also, is this new style hidge as durable as the old metal hinges? I have had traditional T and X series Thinkpads before this one and I'm just surprised that there is no side exhaust.

 

Thanks.

Hi macandpc91,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

Looking at the Rear view of the system- page 50, Fan louvers are present in the back side of the system.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Ok, It is behind the hinge. Thanks for that. To my second question are these hinges as durable as the old ones?

The hinges are same which is used in ThinkPad E470 and X1 Carbon which is quite reliable I believe.
