Just wanted to say that I found the placement of the dc jack on the laptop in a wrong place. A 90 degree jack that is placed in between the fan and most of the laptop ports is not a great idea. Another issue is the actual cable that goes from the adapter brick. It seems to be a bit loose although I don't think it's detachable. I just had a brief power off while everything was connected as before and the adapter brick was pretty hot despite doing the basic stuff such as watching youtube. I have tapped the lead to the adapter brick a bit tighter and it seems to be working. However, the adapter is still slightly warmer than before with the CPU doing 42 degrees. I wonder if anyone had a similar issue as this is only 3 months old unit. THX!!
