RE: XPS 15 fan, on/off/on/off, gahhh!!!
Thanks for the reply. Which i5 CPU did you had?
I agree with you that its a very very *** design. Not only the heat problems related to motherboard, CPU, and GPU, and fan noise, but also the location of the hard disk. It is right under the palm, and does get a bit warm.
In addition, when I opened it up, there were absolutely no rubber or safety cussions on the sides. Very strange. Even my cheap HP Probooks, and Toshiba Satellite had good safety cussions to protect the hard disk if the laptop falls or gets a bump. I know one thing for sure, NEVER a dell again!!
