Your bag is empty.

anyways 32GB RAM config: S$4,059.00

sigh.. so expensive. will wait for reviews.
Usually MacBook Pro can last at least 5 years especially now that the keyboard is no longer the problematic butterfly one.

the butterfly keyboard is not for everyone.

i tried it. buttons seemed bigger.. but also flatter and closer to the frame.
and it's noisy.

did they take cue/reference from mechanical keyboard~?

Think they have already fixed the kb issues. Now is just a matter of taste and preference. I can’t stand the butterfly ones, have to rely on Bt keyboard and a laptop stand

16 inch price is about the same as the previous 15, and refurbished in few months should be the same as the price u r seeing for 15. Buying a 16 would mean better resale value in the future as well since majority dreaded the butterfly kb.

consider the improved thermal too, and reviewers have been saying that fans are quiet and not kicking in too much versus the previous 15.


And many more like the improved speakers, etc,.
value proposition is way higher
