    M1 Air fan?

    So I’m wondering, the chassis seem similar and the pcb looks to be very similar. What’s stopping us from sourcing a new heat sink (or reuse existing) and a fan? It clearly has a fan shaped cutout in the case that resembles the intel MBP of old and the M1 5v should be found somewhere on the...

    Battery Insanity

    I've stumbled into some minor obsessive insanity regarding the best battery health practices for my new 2020 MBP 13-inch. This machine replaces a 7-year-old late-2013 retina 13" that was always plugged in when not in use, including overnight. Those practices run contrary to much of what I'm...
