Seeing as the dock is pumping liquid coolant through the laptop, you want a tight and secure fit to avoid any leakage, and in our time with the GX700 we saw just that. Pushing down on the latch slightly firmly the laptop in and connects the conduits, expanding the cooling loop to the large radiator and fans in the rear dock. If you're overclocking the processor, this seems to be a must, lest you start melting your keyboard in the process. Undocking is a two-step process: push down forcefully on the button close to the back of the laptop and then lift up on the latch. Seems kind of necessary to us that it be difficult آ— we wouldn't want to pick it up and have coolant pour out all over our desk.
