Comparing M1 vs Intel MacBook Air temps under heavy load

Does your Intel MacBook tend to run hot under heavy load? Like really hot? Well watch this, and remember that the M1 MacBook Air does not have a fan.

To help folks who measure temps in Fahrenheit:

  • 26°C is about 79°F
  • 34°C is about 93°F

That’s a pretty big difference, especially for something sitting on your lap.
