Don't speak Korean, but here's a tidbit on the ThinkPad P1 cooling system:

<It's got photos of it at the bottom of this article.>

"Production units (coming end of this month) have had a design change to allow an expanded inlet area that goes from edge to edge to allow more air in.
The back rest tilts the keyboard as well as raises the rear of the unit to let air enter the grill areas [gill area = bottom of the notebook].
Air is exhausted from the thin strip of vents across the back edge of the chassis."
