  • Dave2D review of the 16" MacBook Pro from Apple. This is the best laptop they have made in years. i9 vs. i7? 5500M vs 5300M?

    Hi guys. I have Dell XPS 15 i7 16/512/1050Ti/ 4K. I will not buy 16" MacBook Pro from Apple until they return SD-card and make a screen 4K.

    I have a Air from 2017 with 'works' keyboard. And I will wait for next generation of 13" Pro, without butterfly keyboard problems like this 16" model.

    I want the base mbp 16 for music production maybe light gaming n editing. Basically all around purpose laptop. but are they creating a new MacBook with their own cpu, Face ID? Etc. Idk so many rumors. I just want a good reliable laptop But want to spend my money into something I’ll enjoy and won’t have to worry about for the next few years, and won’t regret in a few months Suggestions?

    I'm not sure if any of you have met this problem on your MacBook before but my touch bar and keyboard would malfunction out of nowhere especially every time i lift it open.
    Im not buying my macbook 16 just to compensate for stuff like this. If you advertise your touchbar for better productivities then you should make it a pain less feature.
    This MacBook is bought in store Dec 14 2019. And its the 1TB 5500 4GB version. Buyers beware.
    Just uploaded the videos in my channel

    Is 64gb worth the money or 32gb is sufficient? This is my question.

    • Ilya Danilov
      Ilya Danilov 14 days ago

      It depends on your needs. Most people will never cross 32 gb limit like many professionals do. I work with 32 gb (not on Macbook) with really hard files (I’m a 3D artist) and this amount is quite enough to me.

    "I dont want to do a technical review of this devices"
    for real? you dont want to do a technical review in an obvious hi tech device?
    Its technically really interesting - the CPU/GPU, but at all, the 5500M performance is.... ok, nothing more.
    and all talk about the switches? really, congratulations, Apple reused the old keyboards, one of the reasons, the older MacBook Pros were famous for. I expect from a 3k $+ a superb keyboard.... not the cheap ones from the 15" 2019.
    The biggest problems with the newer MBPs are maintenance, everything is soldered, including the display cable... come on!
    And the price is fair? really? I got a Notebook with a more powerful CPU and muuuuch faster GPU for 1000$ less.
    Just said... i like MacBooks, im writing this text on a MBP Mid 2010, but since 2011/2012, i cant recommend them anymore. Aslong Apple doesnt listen to users and make at least the battery and the SSD replaceable.... they are overpriced, consumer-grade Aluminium shells with regular hardware glued/soldered together.
    And i can remember the times where people cried about Apple as they put a sticker on the battery "Do not remove", at least you COULD replace the battery by yourself, but since 2012, Apple gone crazy, and many other companies followed then with their ultra slim notebooks. Damn!

    If one is using this 16" MBP for batch video rendering while plugged into power, I have noticed under large batch jobs (20-30 renders back-to-back) the unit stops charging as all power is devoted to processing, fan operation, etc.. As such, the battery starts to drain (as it appears it is designed to do) making the device unstable over time. As the battery gets low, the fans shut off and the rendering continues to run (more slowly) until the unit eventually shuts down. The charging of the device never resumes and the power from the adapter cannot sustain the rendering operations.

    Are others seeing this issue? discussions.apple.com/thread/250876841

    MacBook Pro started at around $ 1300
    MacBook Pro starts at around $ 2300
    The old MacBooks had more ports.
    The new MacBooks need adapters.
    Old MacBooks had a non Retina screen option for cheaper costs.
    Now there is no such option. Not everyone needs Retina, liquid LCD or whatever crap they call it.
    A Mac Mini seems to offer more value. But Apple will refresh them once in 4 years so more people buy these hyped up new MacBooks.
    On one hand I love Apple for their software and hardware integration but These slimy corporate practices and ever increasing prices are a big issue for me.

    Here I am still (happily) using my MacBook Pro 13' with Retina since 2013. Gotta love Macs. Say what you will about the denigration of iPhones (and as an Apple user, I understand it), but Macs are pretty difficult to outmatch. Yes they aren't the best for gaming, but they are: built with high quality materials, consistently reliable, long-lasting, easy OS, etc. This new MacBook looks incredible, great job Dave! Love your channel and your videos! Keep up the great work!

    Hi, Dave. My 16 inch i7, 64 gb, 2 tb laptop sparked last night, smoked a bunch, then died. I use my laptop mainly for music production. I was really bummed out to call Apple and get really, really poor service. The computer smoked up my bedroom. I thought Apple would be really helpful, but they were really rude, and they still haven't given me a refund at this moment. The laptop was about 2 weeks old. My previous computer was a 2012 MBP. Thoughts? Has this happened to others? Have you heard of fire, catastrophic failure issues with the 2019 16 inch MBP? I wasn't doing anything particularly intensive. Shocked that the customer service was so bad. (Also, please, please do a list of recommendations for music production laptops.)

    I've been conned by the reviewers. I went into the shop and tried the keyboard - it's rubbish. The key travel is the worst and it's clicky. Beware.

    I got my 16 inch a week ago and i notice a clicky sound when I open it. Like right before the Apple logo pops up. Is it normal? Is it normal? does that happen to any of you? I don't remember it happening on my 15 inch.

    not only that but if they included an rtx, in order for the laptop to perform as intended it should be plugged to the wall constantly. When unplugged the GPU would not be able to get the power it requires from the battery which results in fucked up performance. But hey ignorant folk dont look at those things all they care is about spec sheets and stuff like that whereas apple will engineer this thing to work optimally in all conditions...
