That does happen all the time on my Intel MBP... curious how M1 handles that. My mom has an M1 Air so I can't really test it on there for y'all. It is very silent.

Yeah, I have the 16" i9 and that sucker gets LOUD when I'm using Google Hangouts or Intellij.

Compiling code will usually put it in jet-engine mode pretty quick.

Yeah, I was wondering. The Intel models will spin up and make a lot of racket, but I still have yet to hear an M1 make any noise at all.

You think Intel was bad, the G4’s and G5’s were smoking. Every Mac I’ve owned, other than an early PowerMac G4, has been noisy under load. I doubt the M1 is any better when you really put it to work, then again even at full load it’s not exactly going to suck power from the wall the way traditional desktop computers do.

I haven't heard the fans on the M1 MBP at all since I've had it.

My wife was using a 2018 MBP for work and that thing would kill the fans during anything even remotely tasking, even using Outlook would kick on the fan, yet alone Teams or Zoom.

Now however, with the M1, I don't think the fan has kciedk on at all, and if it has, then it's been super quiet.

Mind testing something? Put Prime95 on there and run it for a little to see how well it does but most importantly, how loud the fans get when the CPU stays at 100% for a while.

Oh, it just dawned on me that you likely have an Apple Watch too and can use the DB meter to see how loud it gets with something other than a guess too!

I did! I just need my son to get this project done so I can get him one. I think I saw where Amazon has been dropping the price enough that it is a better deal to buy new though. I'm actually pretty shocked and the price drops being seen already.

Couldn’t you get an education discount?

I can, but the Veteran discount ends up with less red tape. You just verify your government status (via id.me) and then it gets you the discounts with Apple.

I have Macs Fan Control app on all of my computers so I just used that for this.

Ambient room noise was 35 db and when I turned the fan on the MBP all the way up to full blast, it went to 45 db with my watch held right about the keyboard.

Definitely noticeable, but that was the first time I've heard the fan come on on that computer since I got it.

Nice. Thanks. That is pretty quiet overall. I'll have test out my MBP (i7) and see what it sounds like to my Watch later today.

Read their FAQ. Yes, there’s a hole. No, it doesn’t matter much at all.

That story made rounds on many tech sites yesterday. It’s a real thing, but it isn’t a big deal on the Mac. If you get two malware or virus apps installed you have bigger problems than them talking to each other. On mobile, so on, the iPad Pro right now, it’s more of an issue, since if they manage to sneak something passed the checks at Apple they could use one app send prompts suggesting another seemly safe app, that they could use a cover for sending data out as a way around OS level protections.

Hey folks, it's been awhile. I remember when I joined this forum was right around the time of the Apple migration to Intel when they released the white/black MacBooks.

Really glad to see this community still ticking! I cannot wait for WWDC - I suspect they will announce 14" and 16" MacBook Pros.

I am blown away by what Apple has been able to achieve so far from a PPW perspective. Mind blowing how well the M1 fares against chips that get multiple times higher TDP!

...and calling/e-mailing/texting ex-girlfriends on the off-chance they'll invite you over for some "old time's sake" no-strings couch gymnastics...

Wow, Partial, great to "see" you! Thanks for popping in, and we hope you can find some time to poke around a bit and have some fun with the old gang. I think everyone still lurking has been doing so for 17 odd years.

And, yes, we're still here!

And, second yes, the M1 is truly miraculous. I cannot remember such a huge leap in processor performance from a single offering. However, to be fair Apple has been at the game for 11 years (all the way back to the A4) and have been developing and perfecting silicon for far longer. That the M1 is a beast is not surprising. That it's the beast to beat is!

The suspicion between my ears says the M1 is the path forward for all of Apple's devices. At some point, the thing will be small enough to shovel into an iPhone.
