Reviews for the Acer Aspire 3 A317-32-C5QZ

While the laptop remains rather cool under heavy load, it is worth saying that the cooling in use is probably the same as one the smaller Aspire 3 (A315-34), which uses a heat spreader, placed directly onto the CPU and a fan that moves the air around the chassis. Apparently, this is not as effective as the completely passive cooling solution, seen on the Aspire 1 (A114-32).
