Hey guys,

I just got this laptop 3 and a half days ago and since yesterday I can hear a HDD-like noise coming from it, even when sitting idle, like the video below shows.

It features a SSD 3 Drive, so it shouldn't be making this sort of noise. Also, it's worth mentioning that this laptop gets real hot when under pressure. Speccy registered temperatures as high as 77-81ºC. This is the highest temperature I've ever seen in 20 years of computing.

But still, it's brand-new, it shouldn't have been damaged yet, otherwise this laptop should not be on the shelves... What do you guys make of this noise? Should I ask for a refund?

Thank you!
