    On the AE700. there are TWO air inlet ports.
    One at the back, the other (near it) on the side.

    Does anyone know (who has taken the lid off one) which one of these is the intake that passess air over the LCD panels and can/does let the dust in over time, and which one is just a plain old power supply type cooling vent?

    Or are they both used for both things?

    Just wondering which air intake does the important filtering to stop you getting dust blobs

    OK, my reply was simple sorry for that, there are actually 4 fans invovled and 2 air paths, unit has power supply fan/vent fan/PBS fan which form the main rear to front path exhaust, side intake for LCD prism only and vortex exhausts into the main path, so yes, 2 in's and 1 out :hiya:
