Does the 4 port MacBook Pro get hot, does it have 2 fans like the 16in? What helps with it to not get hot?


Editor guide

All MacBooks get hot. I’ve a 16 inch: I think it’s related to the aluminium chassis. You can reduce this disabling the Turbo Boost.


How much ram do you have vs utilize?

I usually have VSC and Safari running

I have 8GB Ram 126 SSD


I don’t know exactly. Usually I’m running some Docker containers, VSC, Chrome, DBeaver in a dual-monitor setup (both at 2k resolution and the integrated one is not used). Mine it’s the base 16” with 6-core i7 and 16gb of ram.
