    OLED screens still have a _huge_ issue with blue diode degeneration. That's fine for a $300 smartphone, but who wants to have their $3000 laptop's screen look yellow in three years just for deeper blacks?
    The restrained CPU fans are bullshit though. I'd rather have a laptop that runs a little louder or slower than one that TIM-COOKS the god damned CPU. 🔥🤦‍♀️

    Did you know about the issue when connecting the MacBook Pro 16-inch to an external monitor? The fans will go crazy and the machine will get very hot, if you check Apple discussion forums you will find an 11 page thread already.

    I can still can't congratulate apple on the small things that they have done because I still hate Apple's terrible habit of soldering everything. I am sticking with my hackintosh laptop. Not switching to the macbook pro until apple fixes RAM upgradability and gives me my two M.2 slots for windows and mac. What really makes me hate apple the most right now is that it is the only laptop I can buy with more than 2 thunderbolt 3 ports and I can't switch because of their lack of upgradability.

    I bought a laptop from Lenovo. Had a small issue with the keyboard. I told them and they immediately ordered me a new keyboard and sent a professional technician to put the new keyboard on in my house and it was all done in about 4 days. This laptop including all of the extra warranties I bought which allow me to destroy it and get a new one cost me just under $1,000. 16gigs RAM 8th gen I7 500gig SSD. Works Awesome. Do complex music production and CAD design on it. Fuck Apple.

    I really hated the last model, but with the Escape key introduced back in and the obnoxiously loud keyboard switches fixed, I can enjoy the MBP I got recently. Still not a fan of the useless touch bar though...

    My 2 week old 16 inch MBP 64 gb, 2 tb sparked, smoked, and died last night. Have you heard of this happening? About $4500 brand new MBP. Totally dead. I wasn't doing anything super CPU intensive, and the computer wasn't running particularly hot. Apple was surprisingly not very helpful. At the time of writing, they haven't issued my refund. Thoughts? I appreciate any feedback. Just wanted to know how often this happens. (Also, please please do a review of best laptops for audio production / music. Please!)
