    With this thickness, they can pack in any I/O they want. I see none useful. So in every way, they’re not really making a product that’s pro Sumer.
    The deal too is the profit and revenue from dongles is just huge huge huge.

    i just got my 16" macbook pro and i am typing this on my 2016 butterfly keyboard because i love this keyboard so much. why oh why did they have to give up on the butterfly. i LOVE the feel of it, the low travel and the click. the 16" is all spongy like sorta like my old 2012 imac.
    will be interesting to see if i keep going back to my 13" with the butterfly and ignore my new 16".
    yeah, yeah, i am the minority.

    Some people are reporting an issue with the 16”MacBook Pro.
    The speakers make a “popping” sound when they stop playing audio (watching a TVclip video or editing in Final Cut Pro).
    Any thoughts on this? Have you experienced the same problem?
    By the way, great video as always. Thanks

    Listen guys, apple jump a generation of MacBook pro for getting more time to improve this 16inch model and fixed all problems. Now customers are happy they never been more enthusiastic for buying one. Again great marketing Apple!

    Wow, I never thought I’d see the day Dave Lee won’t pan the MBP. Meanwhile, am I the only one that misses the low key travel and stability of the butterfly keyboard? Sure, the reliability issues are big enough to negate any other pluses, but I wish the new keyboard was more stable and had less travel. If you type really long documents, that extra speed from lower travel and greater key stability is a huge plus.

    They did not listen to what people wanted they listened to decreasing sales because they fucked up for years and years and people reached the point were they had become fed up with with crApple bullshit and their arrogance. crApple had no other chance but to release a new MacBook that is not complete garbage.

    such a great business model. push out crappy hardware for years pretending you just don't care about the complaints of the users. then improve on some of those issues very late while you kept getting rich af, pretending like you are so great that you finally do something about those issues that had been around for half a decade and user satisfaction will skyrocket :D

    Lets get couple things right first. Legal maximum capacity to lithium ion batteries in airplane is under 100Wh. New 16" mbp has 99,3Wh or something very close to 100Wh but not exactly 100Wh like they marketing on their website. Because 100Wh and over is not allowed to commercial airplanes.
    Secondly apple didn't listen their power users, like all the professional media users. Why? well where the fuck is SD card reader and HDMI port huh? And please don't tell me that it didn't fit into that even bigger chase like last time. Also that keyboard is not an upgrade its downgrade since its the same type of keyboard as their 2015 model had before all that butterfly keyboard crap. Okay okay its key travel is shorter but still the technology behind it is exactly the same as 5 years ago. And the reason why they changed it is only money. Getting lawsuits and having replacement campaign's is not very cheap for anybody.

    As someone that is a professional software developer, web developer, graphic designer, and amateur content (music and, to a lesser extent, video) creator, Apple's current gen MBP's have been a huge "meh." I only upgraded to the 2016 because my 2011 was basically hanging on to dear life, and I've since traded it in for a 2018 with basically base specs (since it was *still* faster than my $4400 MBP only two years earlier). Sure, it's much faster and much more responsive, and I really do like USB-C/TB3, but I've never felt the mobile experience was any better than an 8 year old machine - some things were done better (the touchpad and its weight) and many were done worse (keyboard, Touch Bar). This, however, is finally a MacBook Pro worthy of the Pro moniker. A physical escape key and *arrow keys that make sense*, not to mention a keyboard that gives you actual feedback when you type. The Touch Bar is now less of a "really, Apple, y u do that?" and more of a "oh, okay, this actually works" kind of thing (though it still needs haptic feedback and introduction into their wireless keyboards, IMO). The 1 TB and 2 TB SSD upgrade options are now within reach financially - the choice most people will make - but an 8 TB option for the clinically insane (or those that need to work on 4K footage without an external drive). And, from what I've seen in the benchmarks, the 5kM video cards absolutely *smoke* the Vega chips, even with the lowest powered option.
    Finally, Apple has made a MBP that's excellent, simply by addressing its user's concerns.

    Apple just scammed all of their MacBook Pro customers since 2016. But it’s good to see, that they improved so much, that the current base 16” Model is a good value.

  • OTL The High Temple of Spam

    They almost cared. Dedicated graphics are still arse. No card reader to speak of. io still not good enough. Repairability is horrendous the T2 chip is a fucking joke.
    Apple are still being anticompetitive dip shits.
    This thing doesn't go far enough. Apple have a lot of catching up to do and a lot of earning the trust of consumers back. It's too bad consumers don't really know just how fucked they are being.
    The screen is pretty great but 100hz would have gone a long way.

    I completely disagree that this is the first thing they’ve launched in a long time that customers actually want.
    The Pro Display XDR and Mac Pro are absolute beasts and are extremely competitive financially for professional users.

      @Logan Williams But for people who just want an expandable mac, it's absolutely insane that this is the one we have to get.

    • Logan Williams
      Logan Williams 17 days ago

      Cameron Bosch no actual professionals will eat it up.actual professionals already spend $50k+ on computers. Dell makes a computer targeted at a very small percent of people, and it costs over $100k. Believe it or not there are people out there who need computers like that and for them price isn’t an issue.
