I have bought this laptop not so long ago, and have not been using it much.
However, whenever I do want to use the machine the fan noise is too loud even when it's idle. Or perhaps, when I have a few tabs of google chrome running.
Previously, I used a macbook pro for 5 years which I had no problem with taking it to a public place and work with it, but this machine really does put me in a situation where I do not want travel with it. I did not expect this when I spent a large sum of money.
my work involves coding and a bit of graphic work which as the specification of the machine should be more than enough to handle whilst being quiet. Am I the only one with this issue?

Fan noise is normal in all highend thinkpads with thinner chassis . ( these days )
I own a P52 and fan noise was terrible when i started using it .
I don't use any coolers with fans .
I have a orico cooling pad 15inch without fans and a Vertical Laptop stand when i am working .
I have seen this helps a lot with the ventilation/cooling of the laptop .
Meanwhile download CPUID HWMonitor and keep checking .
Some of the laptops have problems because of poor thermal paste application .
When i was narrowing down my selection for a workstation laptop .
I chose the P-52 , its bulky and heavy . but cooling is a little better .

Yes. FW 1.19 helps alot, but the most important thing is to occastionally open Task Manager and monitor which softwares consume too much memory/CPU and make the fans work so hard.
Google Chrome is always on the top list.........
