    Im guessing nobody has heard back from clevo in regards to....anything?

    Fans on my clevo p15sm1b have started to produce the dreaded "high pitched metallic rubbing noise" again. This time, i didnt remove the fans from the casing at all. Im going to have to try to find replacement fans from somewhere now...the noise is driving me nuts. Imagine hearing a high pitched metallic noise when using your laptop. Constantly.

    So for some time now I can feel that the keyboard for my P870DM-G sometimes locks up when I start typing too fast. Because of this, I had to slow down when using just this machine.

    I actually love my np8153 in every way. It is the perfect laptop for my needs and checks all the boxes, except for the side exhaust for the CPU. it would be completely flawless in my eyes if all exhaust were in the rear.

    It's that decision about having rear I/O for a neater desk or side venting....

    I think the P870DM series has the perfect back side layout. Vents and then the USB, HDMI, POWER, I think it's good that way.

    Definitely one of the better ones, though I wish more models had intakes on the top and bottom even with the added noise.
