Is it going to be (a lot) quieter?
I have a 2020 MBP 16, 32 GB RAM, top CPU and GPU, 2TB HDD, bought 1.5 yrs ago.
It's a great laptop, and I'd happily continue to use it. It's fast enough for me (though faster is always nicer). But there's one big glitch - it gets warm very quickly when I work in Lightroom, and the fans start going full speed. Since I sometimes like working on my photos in my bed while my wife reads and tries to sleep, this is annoying.
I guess if I was to try to sell it now, I'd recover a fair bit of what I paid for it, whereas if I wait for another 1-2 years, I'll probably lose a lot of that value (Or maybe I'm wrong and lots of value has been lost already, whereas waiting another year or two will not make much of a change?).
So I'm considering a replacement 16", M1 Max.
I've read that the M1 chips run a lot cooler. Would the M1 Max be a lot quieter than my current machine?
(I could also spend that upgrade cash on a GM 35 1.4 to replace my Samyang 35 1.4, and/ or a number of other lenses. I don't NEED the new laptop).
