'18 MacBook Air Fan Spins Up During Video Calls
I recently recommended a client get a 2018 MBA. Her needs are simple, word processing, web browsing, and video conferencing. She just emailed me the following:
"Checking in, I am feeling very mixed about my new MacBook Air. I presume there's not much I can do about it, but it's seeming to have some trouble coping with video calls (right now the fan is blowing hard and loud). This doesn't seem like such a heavy lift. I wonder if I'd be better off with a more robust machine."
Is this expected behavior? Should I set her up with a fan control utility for video conferencing?
It happens with google hangouts & zoom. 3rd party software is minimal. no memory cleaners or anything like that.
