Got mine and set it up today. Loud fan constantly running and the body gets incredibly hot to the point I'm concerned about something melting. Anyone else noticing something like that with theirs? I'll probably swap it tomorrow
My girlfriend noticed that the fan kicks up quite often, I went into bios mode and set it to quiet. Sacrafices on speed but seems quieter now.

Is this supposed to come with one or two fans? I opened it up and only see one of the two fan areas with a fan. I thought they changed the design to include a second fan instead of the expansion bay.

The hardware maintenance manual I linked to seem to show 2 fans. Of course, they might have changed the design again.

I ordered this sleeve for it, hopefully its not too big.

I ordered the same sleeve and find it to be a little bigger than needed vertically but perfect width.

On another note, did anyone place their order via Air Miles Shops? It's been 3 weeks and nothing on my account.

I wonder if the Flex 5 14 will be put on sale again this year like last year, on Christmas Eve? It was $600 then.

I am pretty sure it was $549 last boxing day.

It was floating between $599 and $649 last BF and Boxing Day (2017)

Great laptop, I added 2TB SSHD as a second drive, going to swap the 128SSD to 256 soon.
Screen sucks tho. Just use a external monitor for photo editing.
Lurking on RFD for years. Finally decided to make an account...😂

Does anyone have the issue with 5GHz wifi? My niece said that she could not even see the 5GHz SSID, her iPhone is fine to connect it.
