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 dissipation. 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 and it didn't take too long to setup as I had the base code handy from another site. -

Hey, it's great to get such instant and useful feedback!

Right now my Mac Mini Mid-2011 is also upside down because, having taken it apart, I stopped re-assembly at the point where you are supposed to re-attach the IR and Fan Connectors. My errant spudger work did for both of them when I was taking it apart. Groan!

I like the look of the new Mac Mini 2018, but I'm gonna have to save up for it. First I have to visit my Mac repair store to see if they can fix it. I took a look on YouTude and suggests this is a common problem.

Best Regards,
