You meant my kind of usage? Haha

Tried the mbp16 a couple of times at Apple store. I have to say the speakers are really awesome.

It is definitely a beast. Just thinking, whether using such a beast to do excel, ppt and word, surfing and video watching if it’s too overkill. Haha.

But the Apple ecosystem and the screen size is just too good.

Should I purchase it now? Or wait for the 2020 mbp16” release?




My 15’ model since 2013 until now. Still good. Even got a USB c to MagSafe charger for it

I would always recommend getting MAC for his kind of usage. Not only is the whole system very reliable. Battery life is solid and more secure than windows.

Can consider waiting for their rumoured 14’ as well since the only lineup with improved keyboard is with the 16’ for now

If you can afford it go for it. I code for a living and this Macbook hasn't slipped a beat...running multiple instances of VS code, Docker, etc the keyboard is also a joy to type on

it is not fixed... But I found a workaround.

Set the sampling in Audio Midi Setup to 48 khertz. My MBP still has popping sound at the default 44.1 khertz.

Try it if yours has popping sound.

such a simple workaround, I wished I chance on it sooner.

The next big upgrade should be the mini led display. If you can wait for it, why not? The generation is pretty big upgrade though with a new form factor, keyboard, speakers. Plus the regular internals upgrade.

I do like my 13. Note that the MacBook Pro is also heavier by about 0.3 pounds. If you have accessories designed to fit the 15-inch MacBook Pro, they may not fit the new 16-inch model.

And if you have a smaller bag or backpack that snugly fits the 15-inch MacBook Pro, the 16-inch model may be too big. So just try first.

Actually there's no much difference between the new 16" and the older 15". Cos they just minimize the bezels for a larger screen.

Had the pop on my unit with the preinstalled 10.51.1.
