how cold does the storage area of a plane get?
Do you take the lithium-ion battery out of the laptop (because of the rules) and then put it in your suitcase?
Though TBH I've been wondering about the creation of condensation in products packed under the plane and then taken out to bake in the sunlight.

It appears to be official: Apple has fixed the problems with the slowdown occurring on 8GB models of M2 laptops - on the M3, they shouldn't occur.

There was never a need to spend 2K. You simply needed to upgrade to either 16GB of RAM or to 512GB SSD. But now you don't need to upgrade from the base model.

Officially an article on the 'best' five Intel processors, but has a lot of background on the Intel-AMD chip wars.

Here they think they have the real reason, but DDF knows better!
They say that if you bury your electronics in rice and leave them overnight, the rice will attract Orientals who will come and fix your device for you.
