    The comments about the good customer service especially in germany were one of the reasons I bought a mac.

    Hmm, that's literally the opposite of most things I've heard and experienced with Apple. A few years ago they sent me a brand new iPhone 6 to replace my 2 year old unit that died for no reason. I had never had AppleCare or any sort of warranty on the original phone, and they gave me a brand new one. I've had plenty of other experiences like that. 
    On the r/mac subreddit there have been cases of broken MacBooks and Apple typically makes everything right. 
    They have a strong brand image to protect, so they can't just screw people over for things like that.

    Believe what you want, but Activity Monitor, which is an Apple-made app reports the same numbers as how the SMART reading increases.

    @ColinLTT This might feel like too much, but most Li-po batteries have maximum operating temperature of 50°C. Idk what is specifically written on the Apple cells, but it's safe to assume it's 50°C as well. If you mod the laptop this way like you guys did, the whole bottom panel will radiate heat across the whole chassis, where the battery cells are. They are black, which means they absorb IR (heat) very well. If you measured 47.6°C with 20°C room temp, that is approaching the danger zone and a lot of ppl I know keep their homes and offices at 23-25°C. At that point, you're risking the battery either degrading quickly, swelling up more than usual and/or it outright blowing up. You should include some sort of disclaimer for this in the desc so you don't get sued if someone's Air blows up on their lap and disintegrates their PP.

    I am searching for a good laptop since October and basically all Windows laptops reach more than 50°C on the bottom side under load. I ended up buying the M1 MBA, but for example this other laptop I considered from Acer also heats to dangerous temps:

    I actually bought this laptop and returned it after 4 RMAs:

    As you can see, it also reaches over 50°C

    This is a really wierd scenario it looks like the previous owner put an old ssd in there and rewrote the chip

    Miners are customers too. Why are "gamers" more entitled to new GPUs than anyone else?
