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.

New MacBook Pro features debris-repelling keyboard, iFixit discovers

As you may have heard, Apple released new MacBook Pros earlier this week, featuring the usual processor and RAM updates, along with True Tone displays. Less touted, however, was an "improved third-generation keyboard" which only promises to offer a quieter typing experience. Apple didn't say anything about making real changes to the keyboard's butterfly switch mechanism, leaving us wondering if they'd even addressed the recently acknowledged "sticky key" problem.
