looks like the fan can now stop.

    I've had couple old MacBook pros, both old style with DVD drive, and those retinas. and one common thing among them is that the fan will never stop. doesn't matter how cool your computer is running, the fan will be running at a minimum speed ~1200rpm.

    however I notice on the new MBPs, at least 13 inch, when browsing web, the CPU is running @ ~95F, or 35C. that's even lower than human body temperature. and both fans are running at 0 rpm. yes, 0 rpm. so right now the MBP is running fanlessly, absolutely silent just like the 12 inch MacBook.

    what a bonus.

    If I remember correctly, this has been around for a while, since the 2015 models.

    Yep, my 2015&s fan barely kicks on. In games maybe. But day to day I don't recall the last time I heard it.

    They're totally silent even at 1200 rpm (my 2013 model idles at that).

    But yeah, your 2015 model is just too cool to start the fan. Pun intended.

    Is this possible with the 2015 15"? Not that I mind them, but mine never spins below 2000 rpm, it seems.
