How is MacBook not the nicest looking laptop? It’s designed by Jony Ive even.

Yes, but I need Mac OS to run FCPX especially.

It just happen so MY and SG are sharing the same model configurations (plugs and etc) and thus, the same packaging, for both countries.

So don’t have to worry if AppleCare doesn’t cover. It does cover in SG (and internationally too).
Cool, didn't know that standard 1 year warranty is international warranty.

As much as possible I"ll stay away from Dell because their after sales service is basically non-existent. They don't even have an official warehouse in SG and all purchases from the flagship store have to be back-ordered and shipped from Malaysia.

IMO, the Surface Book 2 is the nicest looking windows laptop. But it costs slightly more than the 16" MBP with a dated and underpowered CPU+GPU. (2017 Hardware)

So now I'm left with Apple MBP 16". It's marginally cheaper than the Dell and Microsoft. Plus, I study overseas and global warranty coverage certainly helps a lot.

Hi guys anyone using it for data science work? I'm thinking of going for 2.3 i9 8 core, 64 GB ram and 1 TB. Should I take 5500 4 GB or 8 GB?

For data science, you don’t need GPU. Just focus on CPU and RAM.

Don’t have to go until 64gb. 32 is sweet spot for many editors

5500 4gb to 8gb is a $100+ jump if u wanna max out the graphics

You don’t need 64GB for data science work. 32GB is more than enough.

It depends on usage. Can always try parallels first before doing bootcamp.

For data science work, you can go for a maxed out 13" MacBook Pro. Then, invest on a solid monitor like the LG 5K UltraFine Display or the upcoming Apple XDR Display. (Launching in December)

16" display won't do justice for data stuff. You"ll need a much larger canvas. 27" or 32" monitor preferably.

That's what I thought. Cos my games also don't really use much gpu lol. Just that sometimes I do Photoshop and Lightroom I think should be fine right. Should I go 2.4 i9 processor with 5300 4gb or 2.3 i9 5500 4gb ?

Thanks guys but I was using Thinkpad T series with 32gb ram and it's getting slow when I'm transforming huge dataset. So I thought 64 might ease the load in the long run.

I have monitor. Actually more for on the go too when running overseas and no monitor. Battery life is impt. But idk if a higher end graphic like 5500 will eat up my batt life?
