Is there a PC laptop without air vents in the bottom, just like the Macbooks? I've always found those lame; How am I supposed to use it on the top of my lap if I must keep the air vents clear? I actually moved to Mac just because of that. But I'd really like to know if there's a PC option. Thanks.

  • Please narrow down the options, providing a budget would be a good start. What kind of performance do you expect from this computer? Edit the question with a list of must haves and nice to haves and don't needs. – Edward Nunn Aug 16 '17 at 17:17

Well, the short answer is:


This list might help:


It is a detailed list of laptops that are of a fanless design and would be more in line with what you are asking about. However, without more details a proper recommendation is hard to give.

Disclaimer: This really isn't a proper answer either, but the question really isn't about hardware recommendations and more a general question that would be easily researched.

  • Actually this is (theoretically?) only a subset of all the laptops that the OP has to consider because one can also imagine the vents sitting on the side instead of the bottom. – SEJPM Aug 17 '17 at 7:38
  • There was no mention of side vents, so not included as part of my "answer." There were a lot of things not mentioned and I'm not even sure that the OP is even looking for something specific, which I also noted. Its a poor answer, I admit, but it was a poorer question. – user1691 Aug 17 '17 at 19:16
