on the refurb store now, you can get the upgraded model thats $4.7k at retail for $3.9k now. thats MASSIVE savings for a crazy ass beast laptop. i was tempted by it but i'm saving the $$ for now cos there is a good chance that i'll upgrade to the next upgrade when/if its got mini-led displays.
Good decision. I think Mini-LED if ever coming to MBP, will take at least 2 years. Macbook or MacBook Air will get them first.

this is the only reason why i've not gone for a 32gb model. just waiting for a revolutionary re-design. the design of the 16" gives me confidence

If it is a re-design, it is better not to go for the first iteration. I think you can safely use your 16" for 3 years before investing in a new and more mature version.

going to use it for a few more days and then i'll get apple care. making sure that there is no issues before i get it...fans only kicked in during indexing and rendering.

the thing you gotta realise is, there are two kinds of fan noise....the screeching turbo jet engine kind from windows based machines and then the kind from macs which is a lower frequency and doesn't annoy me as much.
The MBP 16" sounds like a dyson fan tower AM07 but in auto-breeze mode.

haha yes exactly! its loud but not obnoxious,(as it should be to cool that processor and gpu )

i dunno man, ive tried the gaming laptops from razer, msi, asus.....the sound of their fans just irritate me. probably the frequency?

anyway thats why ive gone with the 16" also la.....i casualyl play LoL , PUBG & Overwatch and its sufficient (at 1440p)

Frequency is one thing but the design of the blades and chamber are important aspects of fan noise. Apple has always done wonderful jobs in their fans design.

Do you guys still experience the "pop" sound issue? Read from other forums the issue still exists.

When gaming with the 16", I usually put on a laptop stand, just to make sure the air disperses more efficiently. The fan noise will also be less prominent.

Hi I have just purchased my new 16 MacBook Pro but right now Im having some dilemma on choosing the right monitor.

Im pretty much a tech idiot so I would like to get some help in choosing the right monitor!

Im currently looking at 2 ultrawide monitors from
prism +

X300 has a resolution of 2560x1080, 200hz refresh rate and comes with HDMI 2.0 ports along w HDMI 1.4 and Display ports

X290 has the same resolution of 2560x1080, 100hz refresh rate and only has HDMI 1.4 and display ports

While Im more than happy paying the extra money for the x300, Im just wondering if our 16 MBP GPU can support the specs of monitor 1, or is monitor 1 a bit of an overkill here?

Thank you in advance!!!

The MacBook Pro can connects up to 2 6K 60Hz or 4 4K external monitors through TB3 (USB-C).

I would recommend a monitor that comes with a USB C port so you can connect to your MacBook Pro 16".

Thanks adiboy!

What about the use of an USB-C to HDMI adaptor? Will that affect the graphics? Or its just an hassle because I need to buy an extra adaptor?
