Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
That metal plate is supposed to be there and mine gets hot rarely. Your fan doesn't switch on because it's shot.
I posted this solution on a c510/c610 with the fan on maximum speed.

The vents on the side are sufficient - but the fan should run when you turn it on. If the fan is broken or worn out, your computer will overheat and crash - fans can be replaced but a technician or service shop would need to do it, it's not easy to get laptops open. So, to fully answer your question, there is not supposed to be a heat vent on the bottom. But the fan should probably be running when you turn it on. If the seller of the laptop didn't mention a broken fan you might want to contact them and ask if they know.
