Is it OK to put this MacBook Pro in my backpack to carry around? enter image description here

Appreciate hardware analysis.

The mid-2015 model is only available with SSD. I.e. you do do not have a hard drive with moving parts to worry about.

It is therefore safe to carry the MacBook Pro in your backpack and carry it around.

Just be sensible: don't drop the backpack, don't sit on it, etc.

  • So I guess the key is only the moving parts? What about the heat? Does mackbook accumulate too much heat while sleeping and in the bag?

  • If you're worried about the MBP running (and generating heat) while in the bag, disable the PowerNap feature.

  • @zlin No, it does not accumulate too much heat. Even if the software was defective and it did accumulate heat, the hardware has built-in protection that disables the software before it becomes a real problem.
