I've seen it happen a couple of times, it's good that it wasn't too bad ! It makes me doubt getting one for my home.
Oh, I wouldn't live without one - I'm too fond of cooking to do all those dishes by hand! But this is definitely one of the major downsides of having one, that's for sure.I've seen it happen a couple of times, it's good that it wasn't too bad ! It makes me doubt getting one for my home.
Made a new IO for my custom build.
Free internet points if you guess all the cut outs correctly ....

Thin mini-ITX motherboard ? I'm hesitating between HDMI and Display ports. The larger cutouts makes me lean toward DP though, but hard to tell.
Inspiron 2-in-1?Traveled to Norway yesterday, going in for a scheduled checkup at the hospital on the 16th. Currently on day 1 of the mandatory 10-day quarantine (hopefully I'll get the required 2 negative Covid tests to cut that down to 7 days). Found a good secondary use for my Elgato HD60s: using my laptop as a portable monitor for my travel desktop. The laptop can just barely handle the processing, but once I disabled flashback recording it's pretty much lag-free. I'll definitely get some use out of this in the coming days!

Ah cool.It's a Latitude 7390 2-in-1
Not technically mkne, it's a work-issue laptop, and it's... fine. Kind of loud, especially when charging, and the case gets very hot under load, but it's great for grading papers and that kind of work, and battery life is excellent. And the CPU is capped at 12W rather than 15 for some reason (if I were to guess: that loud, tiny fan), but it does sustain higher than 15W base clock spec clock speeds at that power level, so I guess it has some good silicon on board. I'm looking forward to when I can justify buying a new laptop for myself though - this has given me a lot of perspective on what I want and don't want
I doubt it - the chassis is very tightly packed. The main issue is the simple fact that there isn't enough room for a normal thin-and-light notebook sized fan - the one in there is tiny, and it still fills up all available volume. I'm pretty sure the people designing laptops like this one have been ecstatic over the smaller package sizes and smaller motherboards enabled by newer generations of CPUs, as shrinking down the board would have gone a long way towards improving performance by fitting a bigger fan and heatsink.Ah cool.
I wonder if it's possible to replace the fan?
