    Warning if you run AdGuard & Creative Cloud on your new MacBook Pro (tip if your new MBP seems to be running warm)

    I absolutely love my new 16" M1 Max MBP. The screen is beyond gorgeous. But after a few days, I was noticing that it seemed to feel a bit warm.

    I've had the 13 inch 2.9ghz rMBP from early 2015 for a while, it's become quite slow to the point where Facebook is just unusable on any browser. Cycle count is only around 120, anything I can do to speed this up a bit? Also gets very warm frequently. Thanks.
