I received a Spectre x360 about a week ago now, and have noticed that under even light use (only 2-4 chrome tabs open) the bottom of the laptop gets hot and under moderate stress (watching a 1080p YouTube video) the bottom gets practically untouchably hot. I had heard that it got "warm" under medium use, but this seems a bit unusual, especially for a "premium" laptop.
I've looked around on the forums to see if there's something I can rectify, so have tried updating the BIOS to no avail. I also doubt there is any dust clogging the fans, considering the issue has been occurring since day 1.
Is there anything else I could try without having to open it up, such as a way to make the fan kick in sooner, as I'd hate to send back what is otherwise an excellent laptop.
