The new MacBook Air on SoC M2, among other things, stands out for its rather hot temper. And it turned out that the situation can be partially corrected very simply, quickly and cheaply.
The MacBook Air, unlike the MacBook Pro, is equipped with a passive cooling system, so the new M2 gets very hot. In particular, in Cinebench R23, half a minute is enough for the SoC temperature to reach 108 degrees!
The whole procedure for improving the cooling system is covered in the video at the source, but in short, you just need to stick thermal pads that are glued directly to the inside where the SoC is located. Thus, heat is partially transferred to the body, which contributes to better cooling of the platform. As a result, the temperature under load drops by about 10 degrees.
Lower temperatures affect, among other things, throttling, and it, accordingly, affects performance. As a result, the modified MacBook Air performs at the level of the MacBook Pro, even slightly ahead of the latter. Without modifications to the MacBook Air, the same task (exporting to Lightroom) takes one and a half times longer!
True, in the same Cinebench R23 benchmark, the temperature eventually rises to 108 degrees anyway, but not in half a minute, but in one and a half.
Unfortunately, another disadvantage of the new MacBook Air cannot be fixed in any way.
Acer has announced the world’s lightest 16-inch laptop. Weight Acer Swift Edge – 1.1 kg
A screenshot from the presentation of Acer, held in Indonesia, has been published on the Web. One of the slides features a Swift Edge laptop (part number SFA16-41). It aims to be the world’s lightest 16-inch laptop.
The declared mass of the device is only 1.1 kg. At the same time, the laptop received an OLED panel with a resolution of 4K and a frame rate of 90 Hz. There are no other details, but it can be assumed that the device uses 12 generation Intel processors.
At the moment, the lightest 16-inch laptop is LG Gram 16 – it is equipped with a screen with a resolution of 2.5K, and weighs 1.19 kg. Obviously, the new Acer will be more attractive, but so far it is not on sale and its cost is unknown.

Retail sales of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14 2022 Ryzen Edition in China will start tomorrow, but the device is already available for pre-order. And it’s better to really hurry up, because pre-ordering the device will cost much less. For example, the base version with a Ryzen 5 6600H CPU, 16GB LPDDR5-6400MHz RAM, and a 512GB SSD is now available for $800 and retails for $960. The Ryzen 7 6800H pre-order version is $870, retail is $1,035.
Now all the key parameters of the laptop have become known. So, Mi Notebook Pro 14 2022 Ryzen Edition received an OLED display with a diagonal of 14 inches, a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels, a frame rate of 90 Hz and coverage of 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. For a model without a discrete GPU, there is a fairly powerful cooling system – with two fans and two heat pipes.
The interface connectors are represented by three USB-C 3.2 Gen 2. The device configuration also includes a backlit keyboard, a 56 Wh battery, and an all-metal case. The laptop is 14.9 mm thick and weighs 1.4 kg. The package includes a power supply with an output power of 100 W.
