    can i use a mac on a plane? (macbook pro) & fan question
    Well I'm leaving for the united states from korea soon and I'm wondering i i can bring my mac on a plane? ( I will be flying economy class), and i had 6 tabs open ( they froze , i had iTunes and and a few other things open) The fans starting spinning really loud, then once the web pages unfroze the fans stopped spinning, was this normal? What happened?

    Am I alone in wondering what the first part of your posting has to do with the second part?

    Yes, you can take it on a plane. Typically security wants you to put the macbook in one bin by itself, and whatever you are carrying it with in another.

    Thankk youu, ! And does that mean turn the laptop off at security? And usually does the plane have a place where I can charge my laptop? And The second part was that my laptop fans starting spinning really fast then once the webpages recovered the fans stopped spinning

    No i leave mine Sleeping like a baby when going through security, so i don't need to restart it wen I'm in my seat and want to watch my movie. If your in First Class i dare say they they will have charging points. Doubt it in economy

    On the 2nd part, i would reset Safari, clear the caches and see what happens. The fans are going bc something is boring it down and using a lot of resources to do what its trying to do.

    Mac App Store - Airplane Setting - just found that article, looks like a quick way to turn off the radios(bluetooth, wireless).

    Most airports have areas for you to plug into for charging, most airplanes do not. Also, Korea might use a different voltage/plugs than the US, so make sure you have the necessary converter/connector before plugging in your devices or risk harming them..

    A recent Delta flight had an outlet under the seat in economy. I have flown quite a bit in the past, and that was the first time I have seen that. Usually no power onboard.
