Thermal imaging at idle shows that the main source of heat is the monitor itself, which is normal since it is on and consumes a significant portion of the power budget of the system at idle.
Temperatures were not too hot to touch, and the keyboard just felt normal and not warm to the touch. The rear of the notebook shows that there isn't much active airflow since we can't see a large temperature gradient across the intake vent and exhaust areas.
At full load, things do become warm, and heat spreads more than it peaks. The keyboard got a little warm, but not enough to cause discomfort. The air intake vents start to show and the heat sink where the heat pipes from the CPU direct heat becomes the hotspot on the rear of the device.
The rear fan exhaust shows maximum temperatures at 52C, roughly 7-10C higher than surface temperatures. Overall things weren't too bad, but the device can get hot with full synthetic loading.
