The 16" MacBook Pro sounds like it'll be the best MacBook ever, but it needs an engineering overhaul to get around the thermal limitations of the current design. I WANT TO BELIEVE.

The upcoming Intel CPUs are gonna run really hot. Don't screw this one up Apple... THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO REDEEM YOURSELF

Does it even worth buying a Mac now Dave? I see better specs Windows laptops for ~50% price! Also I get then the Gaming options which not a thing for Macs! I really wonder why to buy it?

They don't run too hot, they use run too hot for apples pathetic "cooling" solution

@lasest2 ​ Jonny Bravo Did Apple ever explained why they dropped the ports? Was it only to get it so slim as possible?

It seems like it's going to be a tiny update, using the same chassi and same keyboard. The bezel seems to be almost the same aswell. That would mean the same design will be used another 4 years.

If they moved to ARM there would be less thermal issues.

This is my hope too. Otherwise MBP can get fucked. They sacrificed durability and 'it just works' for bullshit spec chasing, and form. They can no longer charge premiums for trash. They better get back to a proper thermal product. We do not need super specs with heat limitations and short life span. They need a decent price point at entry. They need 500 gigs std. And they need to fix heat throttling. We don't mind slightly bigger or slightly less specs. Just go back the concept of: 'it just works'... And Apple can reclaim its position as a market leader. Otherwise apple can fuckoff.

@Adam Smith Mostly driver issues with newer hardwares. You get a new Porsche but linux only recognize it as an old truck. You wait for another 2 years, you finally get open source Porsche support which doesn't take advantage of the turbo feature.

Great video as always. Very informative! I’ve been waiting for Apple to redesign their MacBook Pros. I’ve wanted to upgrade my MacBook Pro which I bought back in 2010.

All laptop designers need to rightsize their chassis for better batteries and thermals and abandon the obsession with being the thinnest. It's surprising how dumb and sheep-like an entire manufacturing sector can be. Well, maybe not.

Apple's made a huge mistake when discontinuing the 17" Macbook Pro models in 2011. We still sell the 17" MBP 2.5GHz for $1200+ People love the big screens, especially older users. Apple is finally coming to their senses!

You can count on Apple to pair an i9 9900k with 1600MHz DDR3 because "power savings" ^^

The heck with thermals, they need to properly address the butterfly 🦋 keyboard epidemic, just like touch disease on the 6 pulse. If you can’t enter text on any of your devices then it an over priced paper weight. I got burned and I’ll be damned if I get screwed a second time! And to put things into context in an share holders report from two years ago Apple was aiming to double their customer service capacity to 50 million dollars. They’re banking on your over price crap to break. How do you think the car industry has been keeping profitable all these years? Arrr!

Why would anyone want a 16" laptop. I own a 15.6" acer one and I hate it. Maybe the keyboard is comfortable but it's definitively stretching the definition of portable device. I still think ~13" is the sweet spot for laptops

Not holding my breath. Apple painted itself in to a corner, and won't allow itself to regress to a thicker case. There are so many other factors with their designs that create unneeded problems for pro users, like soldering all the components to the motherboard so you can't do any kind of repairs or upgrades in-house. It's just easier at this point to turn to PC-based workflows for most professional users.

Just go for a Surface Book 2. You have the very good Look and you also have a high performance CPU and an NVidia Graphics Card (no thermal Problems at all). You also have a convertible and overall much more Bang for your Bucks.

3:25 - "They have a chance of making something good... if they're smart!" Apple is a very smart beast of a company, which is why they know they don't have to make something good, they just have to make something average.... that is sleek & stylish.... and people will still buy it!

Unless they bring back the ports, user up-gradable memory, SSD and lose the butterfly keyboard it will be just another fail.

ldisc66 I used to love apple, I really did. And I still have Mac computers and iPhones and all the other iShit. I refuse to spend money on these newer computers, they’ve totally screwed them and the customer. Still rocking my 2014 MacBook and 2012 Mac Mini and I’m totally happy with that. I want to be able to upgrade and fix things as needed. You just can’t with their new products. It’s lame as hell.

Really don't give a flying fuck what Apple does, I'm glad they exist tho, competition is good.

Keep dreaming I'll never understand how Apple people keep hoping and hoping only to get turned down year after year after year. Been like that for decades. Just a new generation doing the same stuff their parents used to do. Always the endless disappointments...but never NOT buying Apple. That never seems to be a thought. No one is a fan boy.....nah....doesn't exist but still everything in their lives is about Apple.

just give up on thinning the macbook pro, Apple, just make same size like the 2015 model so that you can put i9 processsor and make up for better cooling solution, also with reliable ports like 2x thunderbolt usb4 type-c port, 1 or 2x displayport and 1x type A usb 3.1(this is for wireless mouse or keyboard) and at least latest high speed micro-sd card if not sd card reader for photographer, ok...

Wait for the new 24 inch MacBook Pro. That's out in time for the 11th generation Intel cpu's.
private bydesign
As soon as Apple are happy with their in house processors being put in laptops the next giant leap forward will be upon us. Anybody editing video on a current iPad Pro knows the potential of a device several times the size with active cooling. I don't see a bigger heavier chassis being delivered, but if it is it will be a one season stop gap to make the time for the in house processor finalization.

I have an HP ZBook X2 G4 with Wacom touch screen, the best transportable ever made. No good on the lap or in bed due to lack of a stiff link between screen and keyboard, but other than that, the industrial design and ergonomics are outstanding. Most importantly is keyboard is full travel Bluetooth. Apple should make the 16" modular, with a removable Bluetooth and pogo pin deep travel keyboard and Apple Pencil ready touch screen? Until then my ZBook is my travel machine and 2018 Mac mini stays at home.

1 more inch isn't going to get anywhere close to fixing their thermal problems. The thermal problems are fundamental to a design in which the only fucking air vent on the system is the same vent that the monitor's hinge partially covers. Look at every other laptop on the market's ventilation systems. And then look at the macbooks. Look at all the problems they've had over the years with resisters and GPUs over heating, or even the glue holding their screens together melting. Your "last chance" is the dumbest thing I've heard.

Yep. All they have to do is find people to design the chip, make it better than Intel and AMD's offerings, test it in real world situations, properly licence patents or ensure that patents are not infringed and spend $10 billion building a fabrication plant. How likely is that? Come on Ford. Make us an SUV that is better than a Ferrari.

Apple seems to have created the perfect worst case scenario for itself: Very Expensive, Reliability Issues, Prohibitively difficult to repair. Add to that failing to support customers when they need help e.g. retrieving data off of damaged phones. Not to mention those of us who really appreciate having built-in SD card reader, HDMI port etc.

I love how RUvidrs talk about the thermothrottling like it is a daily pain for MacBook Pro users. It’s like they are so inside their own bubble that they think all MacBook Pro users live inside. But it is not a problem for the average user. Average users aren’t RUvid video editors. Average users for the most part are happy with it, such as me. We don’t encounter thermothrottling on regular use, it doesn’t slow us down, it doesn’t frustrate us. My guess is that even video editors don’t get frustrated with it, it might slow them down by a few seconds when exporting a video, but that’s just my guess.
