One of the main features of the new laptop is an Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) cooling system and this is how it works,
When the laptop lid is lifted, the bottom panel flexes to create a 6-mm opening for deeper breathing. Air is sucked in through the gap and through tiny holes above the keyboard before being pumped out of vents in the edges of the chassis. The laptop’s raised profile works with slight ramps in the exhaust ducts to help direct warm air upward, away from the cooler layer of intake air. These improvements help reduce the temperature of air flowing into the fans by about 10°C compared to typical laptops.
