    TBH, I think we should definitely expect more than just "a little faster" when you buy any laptop that costs as much as the MacBook Pro. It is not like this is an upgrade you're doing every year. You're not always doing this, so you really have to expect to get the best when you pay this much.

    You guys really shouldn't rush this review. I'd rather wait a little more than watch a disorganized review and wasting my time.

    So they have come up with a patch to stop the throttling, but all the heat is still there. I wonder how that heat will effect the longevity of the machine. At this price point, there should be zero compromises!!!

    I hope Apple will add a SSD slot in the Touch Bar versions of MacBook Pro as in the non Touch Bar version of 13” MacBook Pro. Who want to throw their $3200 4TB SSD upgrade away if some part of the logic board fail after warranty period is over? And who want to throw their logic board away if the flash memory in the SSD get corrupt in a few years? Flash memory wont last forever.
    One thought I have is: Maybe Apple wanted to have a SSD slot in all models but lack of space in the Touch Bar versions made it impossible at introduction? And maybe they will find a solution for this by future optimizations? What else would be the reason only to have it in the non Touch Bar version of MacBook Pro?

    Even basic video editing grinds down within a few minutes with the Pro - what a waste of money. I tried playing some 3D games and it got hot in just 5 minutes - I had to stop playing mostly because of really bad lag.

    >>> who is using a 15" MBpro mid2015 2,2Ghz or 2,8Ghz i7 16GB and using it mainly for Photoshop and Premiere Pro?
    please share your experiences if it keeps up well enough to do photo + some video editing.
    My 15" 2010 MBP recently gave up. Squeezed out the last drop and it worked like a beast for 8 years. Upgraded the ram to 16GB tough and popped 2x SSD's in it. my use in a laptop is lots of Photoshop some Premiere pro and daily browsing multitasking.
    > Now I am a bit in a crisis choosing a new upgrade watched many many videos on the 2018 MBpro but well I might want to wait for a few more years until Apple comes up with something new in 2019 or 2020 and so on. In the meanwhile I tend to go for an older model such as the 2015 MBP's read lots of good things about them. As a test I bought a brand new MBpro a few days ago. 15" mid 2015 MBpro 2,2Ghz i7 16GB 256GB (with the idea of upgrading to 512GB or 1TB). Tried out this model for a 2 days with very minimal use. Placed 40GB of photo files on the SSD. But after a few seconds I already noticed that the colourful Apple 'loading logo' occured way too often even when scrolling through jpeg files. When opening 6-8 raw files in Photoshop at once the fans start to go loose + the bottom heats up pretty heavily or when opening big PSD files (which is very normal with such a heavy load). But mostly what bothers me is the colourful 'loading beach ball occurred' constantly. Multitasking was not happening it was waiting waiting waiting and waiting and waiting before the spinning colour wheel would go away (even just when scrolling through jpeg files in finder using the arrow keys on a normal pace). I brought the laptop back for a refund. Still you read very good stories from people using a mbp 2015 model. Will it make a difference to go to a 2,8Ghz i7 instead?
    * Now I don't really know what to do next, was this 2,2 Ghz i7 just not working properly, it came straight out of the box brand new and everything looked fine nothing weird besides the loading logo. I can pick up a refurbished mid2015 2,8Ghz i7 16GB 1TB Intel Iris Plus version but can't really test that one out. What do you guys think? Or do you have a 2,8Ghz i7 2015MBP ? And what are your experiences in Photoshop / Premiere Pro does it keep 'loading' as well most of the time when doing simple tasks ? please share your experiences with me if you are indeed working on a 2,2Ghz or 2,8Ghz MBP2015 model

    It is not normal to put such a CPU in a laptop that can not handle it properly just to have better specs on paper or whatever reason pushed Apple to do it.

    I suppose they have to find *something* wrong with it in order for it to be interesting, but a lot of the negative stuff here sounds super nit picky. I mean, sure, if you’re really pushing this machine to the max on a regular basis as Vjeran seemingly does, then yeah, maybe. But there are, of course, lots and lots of pros out there who don’t do video editing or photography work but could still benefit from the latest processors and extra RAM. For all of those people (including myself), as with previous iterations of this computer, I suspect you’ll be perfectly fine and really enjoy the machine.

    Which Apple product is free from controversy or limitations? Maybe the iMac pro. But that’s just Apple. They killed off headphone jacks but technology hasn’t gotten there yet, and again they bet big with all USB C. Also not the the perfect world yet right. USB A still a big thing. Go to any new hotel and likely they might have a USB A port on the wall socket but never C. Or a recent model car so far I know Mercedes has a C, the rest? Maybe still A.

    These are not well engineered. The keyboard is horrible and will damage your joints due to the lack of energy dispersement. Microsoft and other vendors are outclassing the performance of the MacBooks at a lower price and more features. He was right in this video...the 2015 MBP’s are a better buy.

    It is faster, it does have a better keyboard...and the T2 chip should add a little capability for the same price and the previous version MBP. Sure, Apple could go bigger but that would defeat the purpose of creating a nice portable unit to have with you. Also, these performance improvements come at the same cost as the previous version(ie, no price increase). The only difference being that you can get a bigger SSD and more RAM which you couldn't before(for more cost). People just want something to complain about I guess!

    When are we going to stop blaming ourselves for Apple's mistakes and actually take them to task for not being up to the mark. Good enough is NOT what you expect from a $2400 premium laptop, specially when the Core i9 doesn't really differentiate from the Core i7 version despite being $300 more.

    LOL. It’s like people have only just realised computers adjust performance based on internal temperature. Thermal throttling isn’t a crime or a bad thing. All computers do it, the 2018 MacBook Pro just had a bug that was fixed. It still does it but correctly like every other computer.

    I think it feels like a letdown when your most demanding (i.e. actually "pro") users are almost universally ambivalent about a product and its performance. $2500 is a lot to pay for ambivalence, $7000 just seems mildly offensive.

    When I bought MacBook Pro I didn't ask "do I trust it?". If you pay 2500-4000 euros for a laptop, you shouldn't need to ask if you can trust the device or not. Only time you need to ask it, it is when you buy a laptop around 300 euros or so. If you need to ask the same question before buying MacBook Pro, then there is something wrong. Either the issue is you or there is something wrong with the design.
    So.. Can you trust a laptop which is running around 95-98 C at 2.8 Ghz? And that is under its base clock speed (2.9Ghz). How long do you expect it to work without having internal issues because it is too hot all the time when actually doing something else than writing an email?
