This site will help collect and show the temperatures of Apple Macintosh computers using the new processors by Intel. All new computers that haven't faced the trail of time will have problems and issues that can make users mad and furious. As with the new MacBook Pro machines where were, and still are, problems with heat dispensing. After scouting forums and help sites for information about what temperatures I can expect on a new MacBook, but that turned out to be harder and more scattered than I first imagined. That's the main motive behind this site.

Getting the site up and running was easier than starting from the ground since I already had the code base ready from another site that I've been running for a few years. But it still needed a lot of back-end, layout and functional changes.

If you want any features or even find bugs, don't hesitate to e-mail me . Quick changelog:
