    The laptop is fine, maybe it's just this computer but I was unable to view more than the front of the laptop. To confirm where the fan is I was unable to.

    Acer laptops have been very reliable for me and the E5-571 looks very nice, fan is on the right side of the laptop.

    I would recommend the Asus laptop. They are really tough and provide solid performance. I have an Asus laptop which is 7 years old and never had a problem with it. This is my experience with Asus and I strongly recommend it but after all it is your choice!

    I'm on my 2nd Asus notebooks the first one lasted 4 years then video card crashed. I been on this G75 since July 2012. Have had to RMA it twice. First time for a simple right side speaker that didn't work after a 2 week turn around the right speaker still did not work!
    first Spring of 2013 I have a complete failure. 2nd RMA Replaced MB, Keyboard, track pad and cables and right speaker wire. Has worked perfectly since its return about 3 weeks later. I have no idea about Acer!! Asus Tech support sucks bad. If you do buy Asus get in the Forum from where ever you get it from and look for Users that have cl as in cl-albert cl is for customer loyalty these guys are very helpful with getting your computer fixed if you have too and most are pretty sharp tools on fixing any none hardware issues that cam come up. Even If you don't have a ROG Notebook or MB you can still join the ROG forums some great Peer to peer help there http://rog.asus.com/forum/

    As you can see, everyone has their own experiences which you should take with a grain of salt. Ultimately it is you to make your decision for better or worse. Pick what is best for you and suits your needs as to what you want to do with it. There is no clear winner.

    Of course there is. Sleep on it and then get the one you think is prettier or cooler or more practical or whatever your deciding factor is. Not a 20 price differential. You'd regret it.

    No idea. My current laptop has two, my last had one on the RHS. I wouldn't worry about it - if there was a fundamental flaw in placing of fans presumably the makers would have noticed. It is their job after all.
