The image on the right is at full load after about 30 minutes of stress testing while the image on the left is the unit sitting idle. The keyboard barely gets warm, even after a long period of intense load. The display reaches 40C, but even that is low compared to other notebooks I have tested. The unit is definitely designed to exude little heat as the components Dell has used are all designed for low power operation.

The rear of the notebook does heat up a little bit, as it is designed to do. There is a large heat sink on the rear of the unit, it's integrated into the shell of the notebook and allows the unit to stay sealed while heat moves outside.

 

There is a blower fan, and the fan is designed to operate where others can't, and it does spin up after heat builds up. The good news is that the fan is almost silent, even when it's blowing at full speed.
