    Looking through the Owner thread, I saw that early on some cat owners were concerned about how the GX501 opens up on the bottom to vent air through for additional cooling. They were clearly concerned about cat hair getting sucked in and mucking it up. But I have not seen any of the Owners talk any further about it. Since I have cats and was thinking about buying a GX501, I was hoping I could get some input from one of the Owners.

    Have any of the Owners with cats found cat hair to be a problem with the GX501?

    I have a few cats here.
    And a Zephyrus.

    A week passed and i don't see any hair accumulation in the vents.
    On the other hand only week has passed.

    I don't see how it's different from dust and other air born particles\hairs in a house without cats wondering around the computer.
    Zephyrus even have an advantage because once in awhile you can remove 4 screws and clean the cooling mechanism.
    Task much more complicated (near impossible is some cases.) in most other laptops.

    Thanks for the reply, Sa7ina!

    Are there any other Owners with cats who can share their experience?

    Thanks,
    SirGrail

    If there are any other GX501 Owners with cats who are willing to share their experience, I'd really appreciate it. I am trying to avoid spending a couple thousand dollars on something that might shortly turn into a paperweight. : P
