    Rn I’m contemplating on whether or not I should get the 13 inch bc it’s cheaper for my parents or the 15 inch just bc I want a bigger screen, but gosh! The “bezels” (idk if that’s the right terminology) are so big and the keyboard looks so small it almost looks out dated so it makes the 13 inch look prettier but the 15 inch though, ugh so big and beautiful 😭😫

            With this amount of ads and lengthy sponsor messages I find this unwatchable. I’ll try to avoid this channel from now on.

                    Considering selling my current 15” 2015 MacBook Pro which was the higher end model with no extra upgrades, and wanted to get this exact model you’re reviewing, as it’s about my price point for a new laptop. With the rumored 16” MacBook Pro, what are your thoughts in getting this 15” right now in my situation. I most likely won’t buy the 16” as I’m expecting it to be at least $3k. But do you think that launch will lower the prices of the current MacBook pros? Let me know your thoughts and great video! :)

                            If you think about it it is kind of the shape (when it’s closed) of the iPad Pro.

                              Hi, Great video. Would you be able to make a video or run some tests for MATLAB. If you could run parallel for loop continuously to check for thermal throttling.

                                Hi,you mentioned the heat,but isn't the 2019 model cooler and quieter than the 2018? It is really important for me to know! I'm unhappy with my 2018 becouse of the noise and the heat. Thank you in advance :)

                                    I bought the 2018 i9 w/ 560X then 2 months later they came out with the Vega 20. I'm a pro video producer so the Vega 20 is a big deal, so I sold my 2018 taking about $1000 hit and bought the 2019 2.4Ghz 8-core w/ Vega 20 and it is MUCH Faster for exports and overall smoothness. It does also seem to run a bit cooler where the fans don't spin up as much. Today is the last day I can return it for a full refund so I too was going through that thought process of do I return it and wait for whatever comes next... Well here's the deal, that becomes an endless cycle...there will ALWAYS be faster better computers down the pike, that's how technology works and how they keep us buying stuff. Not to mention I don't want the first generation of a new design!!!! I could justify this one because the graphics are almost 100% faster, the extra cores, and cooler running...those are all things I directly benefit from. My desktop is 2010 12-core 3.46 w/ 64 GB RAM and Radeon 580 graphics, so I could return this laptop and just use that but I've been enjoying the ability to still be able to get work done when not at home, or setting up shop at other offices and getting work done. So I'm thinking I'm going to keep it as if I wait and it doesn't come out in september, has the same chip, blah blah blah, or is a lot more expensive...then I just lost 4 months or more of extra productivity for something that isn't clear 1) when it will truly come out, 2) real world benefits, 3) pricing, 4) if I have to end up buying this same model in Sept or Oct then I pay that premium for something that will be updated again in a couple months... So for me, its a great machine, processors are faster than my 2010, Vega 20 is slower than 580 but fast for a laptop. I'm about to do the Pixlas Mod on my 2010 to add Radeon VII and that'll extend the useful live of that computer and I can decide if the new mac pro is worth it or not...again don't want the first generation... Rather have all or most bugs out. Plus its going to take a while for vendors to make their software support a lot of its extra co-processors and such. Where the 2019 design has been out for a while and is well supported.

                                      @MsChloeMa Yes! I decided to keep it. My big decision point is that this is a huge upgrade from what I had, it processes HEVC and h.264 in near real time 4K, so its faster than my 2010 mac pro (though I'm probably going to upgrade the RX580 in that to a Radeon VII shortly). Well if you don't need a laptop for a few months then you can wait, but these are all just rumors, so it may come out, it may not, it may just be announced with availability much later...then you've been out months of productivity coz of the endless upgrade cycle. I chose not to chase that dragon because 1) who knows what the specs will be, if similar then I just lost months of convenience, 2) not fan of buying first gen of any product...just look at issues with the current version so the 2019 is as refined a design as we could ask for in this model after 4 years, 3) it fits really well into my current workflow and helps me be more productive right now, 4) if the new computer is compelling enough, I can always sell this one at a loss and upgrade...macbooks maintain value well for a computer and I put mine in a UAG protective case so its virtually in new condition after months of use.

                                      White Rock did you end up keeping the 2019? Just ordered it, similar specs, with a one time 15% discount and it hasn’t arrived yet. Debating about returning and waiting or just keeping it.

                                            I know I’m gonna sound terrible but hear me out
                                            You don’t have to buy their recent or best hardware to enjoy their software
                                            That’s where most non apple user get the “eco system” confused for example

                                            my list

                                            1: iPhone X 256gb ( not current gonna be obsolete by 2 gen this autumn but still a beast why change)

                                            2: MacBook Pro 15” 16gb ram 2014 ( definitely obsolete by today’s standard but even with the intel iris pro graphic this thing is still a beast it runs fifa 18 and 19 at 57 FPS even on battery in windows if I wanna actually game got a PlayStation for that)

                                            3: Apple Watch Series 3 gps only ( perfect no need for cellular it can come in Andy but once I’m a blue moon
                                            Additional Apple Watch unlocks your MacBook just like Touch ID when wrist detection is on and it’s strap to your wrist )

                                            4: Apple Music ( worked with everything above perfectly)

                                            5: 50gb iCloud storage more than enough for app data and backup storage just for £0.75

                                            Never had enough tangible reason to buy this product
                                            EarPods ( actually dislike the design)
                                            iPad. ( useless for me tried it but completely useless it’s a blowout iPhone )

                                            HomePod. ( Hoo boy the worst of em all )

                                            This right here will not give you everything you want but everything you need to enjoy technology for years to come from apple

                                                All 2018, 2019 15 inches MacBook Pro are still thermal throttled on the motherboard. Turn off your air conditioner, keep the air temperature above 30 Celsius, and run some heavy test back to back for at least 20 minutes. For example, check your CPU frequency when running Unigine Heaven benchmark with Extreme settings. It can easily go under the base frequency down to 1.xGhz. Because the CPU and GPU both will NOT run as fast as the Motherboard is too hot and holding back CPU and GPU from running fast. CPU and GPU temperatures will be LOW because of underperforming. The conclusion is that you only can get your test high scores running either CPU Intensive or GPU intensive, not both, under a properly air conditioned environment (below 26 Celsius), where you will have them run faster and hotter. But still you cannot push both of them to their limits at the same time. If you do so, the CPU cannot maintain the base frequency. Funny isn't it? Sadly nobody is making a fuss.

                                                  Okay but what you're not mentioning is that the 2018 i9 had a base clock of 2.9Ghz and after the throttling bug was squished, it actually ran at or above its base clock, my i9 MacBook Pro 2019 runs at about 2.8Ghz sustained.

                                                    Hi Greg, another great video. I enjoy your videos because you look and sound like you know what you are talking about. The absence of a card reader to me is a good thing, if you ever had to use a tweezer to dig one out of your new lap top you'll know what I mean.Thanks...Frank

                                                      Unpopular opinion, but I think the keyboard issue was “fixed” for the most part with the release of the 2018 MacBook Pros.

                                                        Hunter Harris when I say “fixed” I just mean it’s not a huge widespread problem like in 2016 and 2017. Every product is always going to have a few bad batches, there’s no 100% fail-proof product out there. We haven’t heard a lot about the 2018 MacBooks failing so that’s why I’m under the impression that it’s not no longer an issue for 95% of people. On top of that, if your 2018 MacBook keyboard fails, Apple will replace with the 2019 butterfly keyboard. It’s a nice upgrade and something that’s not possible with the 2016 and 2017 MacBooks due to their battery placement.

                                                        My guess is the redesign MBP will be at a significantly higher price point than the current 15. Similar to the 2018 iPad Pro / 2017 iPad Pro

                                                          Oh you're not wrong, the loud fan noise isn't an exclusive problem to the MacBook Pro. But I would love to see Apple get the noise levels down like they did with the iMac Pro.

                                                          This sounds like a great deal of the MacBook Pro, I would consider it, but as the rumors are, I want to wait to see if that 16.5 Inch MacBook Pro, with a keyboard redesign and thermal issues. I don't want to buy a MacBook Pro until I see what they have in the future, and I am also considering a future I-Mac, with both maybe having Apple's own ARM chips. I am wondering if the next I-Mac and I-Mac Pro will be similar in size and design as the New 32 inch 6K Display. If they are going to be like 32 inches instead of 27, that would give them more room for two cooling fans and a ram door in the back, for both of them. It would be a very nice looking I-Mac with the bezels being like the new display, and maybe on the back there will be better venting like the new display. This may mean they may have a 6K display as well, and I saw a video of someone's trip to Computex in Asia, (Sara Dietschy's Video) and Intel was there with their 10th Generation, maybe ARM chips, maybe 10th Generation chips. My other desire is an I-Mac and an I-Pad Pro 12.9 with the new I-Pad OS, I could use the I-Pad on the go, and hook it up to the I-Mac and work on the Adobe apps when the new OS come out. As far as the Keyboard issue, it may be too soon to tell, and that said Apple maybe thinking that too, so they include it in the warranty program.

                                                          Anyway, I would consider that desk that can go various heights, and programed settings so you choose the setting you want. If you want to sit down, a setting for that, and after awhile you want to stand up, you can push the setting for that as well. This would be great for college dorms. It seems pretty roomy as well. I like the flexibility of sitting down or standing up.

                                                            Don't you think that new redesigned macbook will have new issues which will be revealed later on? My belief is people will be in the same situation like with 2016 MBP - the worst macbook ever. I think it's time to upgrade now or in a year.
