    Overall Impressions

    Fan Noise
    My son launched the chess app on his newly created account, fans kicked in pretty loud after just a minute or so into the chess app. Not super exited about that. Fan has a low hum pretty much constantly. No big deal when it's low...

    Screen is super sharp and bright.

    Happy with extended 10-key keyboard.

    Hearing a lot about the fans which is surprising with the more efficient internals, as long as it's bearable I think i would be fine with it. But I would like to see a new cooling system like the iMac Pro cooling system
