Hey Guys

Just picked up a G55-VW a week ago. Great laptop! Little bit of a concern...

I see on the back on the computer that there are 2 air vents which lead me to believe that there are 2 fans on this computer (one dedicated to each of the vents)

Can somebody confirm this.. As my left vent doesn't seem to have any air coming out of it however the right one does.

Thanks in advance.

The G55 uses only one vent, the other is just to make the notebook ascetically pleasing.

there are still two fans though, so you are right about that. it's just that the left (or right, depending on how you look at it) vent is blocked simply becus it's where the battery sits. the two fans work together to push air out of the single vent.
