Have you wondered how a laptop looks like when you take a thermal image with the computer working normally and not loaded to the maximum, well you don’t need to anymore. As you can see from the thermal image the chassis of the laptop is having a pretty evenly spread temperature, meaning that the cooling is working well and is well balanced. If there is some hotter area this is usually where the processor and the video card are located as well as the exhaust of the laptop cooling that blows out hot air is. Do note that the lower part of the screen of the laptop has a higher temperature than the upper one, this is due to the fact that at the bottom of the display usually the manufacturers put some electronics that is responsible for powering up the backlight of the screen. In the future we are going to be looking up at some other notebooks, taking thermal images with different usage scenarios, so that you can see the difference.
