2018 MacBook Pro with Core i9 reportedly gets too hot

2018 MacBook Pro with Core i9 reportedly gets too hot

With great power comes great responsibility or, in the case of computers, great heat. The fact that computers generate heat is nothing new and is solved by one of two methods to cool things down: heat dissipation or throttling. The latter, of course, reduces the processing power of the computer and is not an ideal situation. That, however, is exactly what one YouTuber found in the new 15-inch MacBook Pro running on an eighth-gen Intel Core i9, the fastest and the hottest model. Literally, too.

Why the Surface Go needed to be x86 and not ARM

Why the Surface Go needed to be x86 and not ARM

Microsoft just revealed the Surface Go, its lightest, slimmest, and cheapest Surface tablet yet. Cheapest is relative only to other Surface 2-in-1s and it’s hardly iPad thin or slim. And that 9 hours of battery life doesn’t even hold a candle. With LTE support still coming later, it’s far from being the “always connected” experience Microsoft was singing about last year. It could have tried with a Windows 10 on ARM device but, if the Surface Go is to even make a dent in the market, there was really no other choice than to go with an Intel x86 processor.

Specifically, it’s meant to battle the 2018 iPad and Acer Chromebook Tab 10 head-on. There might, however, be something brewing in the Chrome OS camp that could undo the Surface Go’s advantage. According to a leaked HP technical document, there will be variants of the Chromebook x2, the first detachable Chromebook, on the way, and one of them runs on the same processor as the Surface Go.

Surface Lite details: OG Surface returns with Pentium inside

Microsoft may have nixed the Surface Phone right at the bud, but it’s not done with the Surface brand yet. Almost out of the blue, rumors of a smaller and cheaper Surface 2-in-1 tablet have begun going round, perhaps to diffuse the tension around the stillborn foldable device. But if you were expecting an iPad killer, you may want to keep on waiting because this is definitely not yet it.

Dual-screen laptops might just be the next trend in consumer PCs, at least if ASUS, Lenovo, and Intel have their way. While smartphone makers are still stumped by the foldable display puzzle, laptop makers don’t have that same problem. They can have two screens separated by a hinge and can even have those two screens be of different types. That’s definitely the idea behind Intel’s Tiger Rapids, a prototype dual-screen notebook that has a regular LCD screen on one side and stylus-enabled e-paper display on the other.
