Just ordered 2.3Ghz i9/32GB DDR4/1TB SSD/5500M 8GB
Apple states that it will be delivered from 6th-9th December.

Anyone knows whether they tend to home deliver earlier than scheduled for custom configurations?

From what I know, no. Apple usually don’t deliver earlier unless there is a change in circumstances.

May I ask what you use your MacBook for? The specs looks high-end.

Ok thanks for the info!

Will mainly be using it for 4K Video Editing, 42MP Raw Photo Editing, and 3D Modelling of high-rise buildings. (Autocad, Revit, Rhino, 3Ds Max, Maya, Photoshop, FCPX & After Effects) Hence, I"ll be dual booting as some apps are only exclusive to either of the OS.

Anyway if I find the specs overkill, if I'm not wrong, I can return and get a lower specced one. We"ll see.

Your work seems fit for the specs mentioned. You’ll be fine with what you have ordered I think.

Didn’t get any. But would choose Baseus if I have to.

I have been using dodocool for about 2 years now. It's very reliable, compact and light. However, it runs warm when only 1 peripheral is connected. (eg. 4K HDMI @ 60HZ) I guess this is normal as these hubs aren't directly powered from a socket.

P.s. You can't go wrong with Ugreen and Baseus too. They're solid brands.

Bro, why not get the i9 2.4Ghz, 2TB, 32GB RAM, 5500M 8GB config and you can get it almost immediately?

Isn't that a custom configuration that is only available online? I just cannot justify the $200 1Ghz base clock difference. 2TB is nice for dual booting but I'm a student and opting for the i9 1TB config is as good as buying a motorbike liao.

In fact, I'm even considering returning the 2.3Ghz i9 MBP for a slower model. (i7, 32GB DDR4, 1TB SSD, 5300M 4GB)
But I"ll have to test it out. If I don't take advantage of the beefy hardware, I might make this move.

Yes that’s a custom build but only that build has it readily available. i7 processor might not be enough for your 3D modelling though I’m not sure how heavy a user are you.

Oh cool, The jewel staff didn't tell me such a config is available. I too can't tell yet on how much power I need. All I can say is that my i7-7700HQ is always at 100% Utilisation whenever I 3D Model. But that's a 7th gen quad core processor. Have to buy and test the MBP to find out, no choice.

hmm. if you are using gfx software that is exclusive to Windows, my suggestion will always to not get a Macbook. even though you can dual boot, i used to have thermal issues when playing a 5 years old game. performance of bootcamp is abit dubious as well.

plus some of those software runs better with CUDA core which is NVIDIA exclusive.

Anyone bought the Caldigit TS3+ docking station?https://www.apple.com/sg/shop/produc...-ts3-plus-dock

It has 85W charging but a Caldigit employee mentioned they will release a firmware update by the end of 2019 to cope with the new 96W charging of the 16" MBP.

A few Apple related outlets reporting this already. Seems like it is related to Catalina as opposed to hardware?
