    Hi, I have a 2009 MBP 15", and over the years it has taken a battering. Today I had the bottom and top case replaced, however I noticed that there are no air vents on the new bottom case, compared to that of the old one..

    Being that the fan has no out-take, does this pose a problem?

    Thanks

    Where did you have the case replaced at? Apple? I would think there would be a potential problem at hand with no venting.

    In that case I could be wrong, but am quite sure that they were on the previous one.

    MBPs have never had bottom vents. It's all through the hinge.
