With fans blowing from the top ? And with the only air flow possible
on one side through the fins on the power supply ? And how are the
disks cooled ?
How about the weigth distribution, with 2 disks and battery on one
side ? Or the fact that the larger slot can only be used for a card
which doesn't need cables, as these would be blocked by the battery ?
Or the fact that the smaller slot is pretty much blocked to the inside
by the chipset (?) radiator ? (and if these slots were not supposed to
be used, why bother putting them in at all ?)
