    Cooling system and how it works

    I have a few questions about the cooling system. FIrst, where does it intake air from? Is it from underneath? Is it from multiple areas? Also, would be ok if it was sat on the bed or on a person's lap?

    Intake is from underneath. I wouldn't suggest having it on a bed as that would likely block the intakes. Lap should be more or less OK.

    Get some kind of lap desk setup ( also use it when sitting in bed ) ... it will protect your lap and allow air to be drawn into the unit ...

    I've tried playing Tera while having it on the bed and it was okay for the first two hours. The bed was pretty hot after that, but the laptop was fine. I wouldn't suggest playing longer than that. As for on the lap...I wouldn't try playing on my lap, considering the weight of the laptop.

    what you couldn't feel the heat before getting 3rd degree? and are you talking about the g73+ series? because they're pretty good for putting on your lap as the heat comes out from the rear

    The G73/74/53 systems all take air in from the top of the notebook, through the speaker grille , as opposed to drawing air up from the bottom like most do , or in through solid aluminum as macs do . This means that the system stays nice and cool, even while gaming. In fact, it means that a chillpad is almost meaningless. On the G75, I think at least some of the air is drawn in through the bottom of the notebook . I guess this means we can clean the fans easy, but ASUS could not make the speaker grille removable? Just my $2x10^-2

    the g73 does, but actually the inlets for the g74 are behind the speaker grille, underneath the monitor, which is where i beleive half of the inlets for the g75 are, the other half being on the bottom. I could be wrong about that though, its just what it looks like to me, but i know about the g74/73 for sure, i have taken them apart a few times to repaste them.
