I've had a 2013 13" MacBook pro with a small SSD, 8GBs of ram and a i5 since I bought it new. I was always impressed by how I rarely heard the fan turn on at all during normal usage and when I did it was still very quiet.
I just bought a used 2015 model 13" MacBook pro with a 2TB SSD, 16GB of ram and an i7. I haven't used it extensively yet, but I've already noticed the fan running much more frequently and loudly. I was just installing Xcode and it sounded like it was on full blast for the entire process.
Is this to be expected because of the i7? Or due to some other difference in internals? Or is this indicative of some issue?
The computer is used but only has 260 battery cycles.
