Hey, fellows.
I recently bought a samsung laptop - model Galaxy Book2, with core i5, 512SSD nVME and 8GB of ram.
However, using in normal tasks, I noticed that the left side of the palmrest is heating more than the right.
The temperatures seems to be ok - CPU around 37ºC-45ºC under normal circunstances, while the SSD goes around 27ºC-37ºC.
Does anyone have this model and noticed the same thing?
That is the only thing that is bothering me in this model.

does seem like something to look into.

I usually tend to place an eraser underneath the laptop towards to the rear of the laptop to help prop it up and allow for ventilation.

Actually, the temperatures are in the normal range.
The only thing that is bothering me is the fact the left side heats more than the right, which is perceptible if you rest your hand above the palmrest.
I guess this is due the location of the M2 ssd - which rests under the left side.
Do you think that if I change the M2 to a SATA SSD (which can easily be added in the right side), this problem would be solved?
