Saw this again today because I'm few clicks away to purchase a refurbished mbp 13 early 2015 ( i5, 2.7ghz two cores, 8gb ram and intel 6100 integrated graphic card) with 1 year warranty from a autorised refurbishing company from Spain, where I live. The laptop have no scratches on chassis, same the display and the battery have ~350 cycles. The display is the original which I find a plus, but the price is something I m not sure about because I find it pretty expensive for it s age and very near to the newest ones which I hate for their keyboard. It s 900euros and I plan to change the original 128 ssd with a 480 owc ssd for another 150 euros. And what I plan to do with it it s like power point presentations, exel work and a bit of photo editing for myself, not professionaly, and media consuming. My concern and question is : it s a great deal for the price? I plan to use it for like another 3-4 years for same things. I would appreciate any response. And Dave, thank you for your great knowledge you share and quality videos you deliver to us. Peace.

@Carlyne Jean Jacques Good luck with that crap keyboard and the price difference to the Macbook Pro is just £150 and for that you get a touchbar, more ports and quad core processor.

Well, I kinda confused, cause my brother birthday is coming up soon and I like to buy a present for him which is a laptop/gaming laptop. He interested in Video editing, Photo editing, 3d rendering, Animating, and of course gaming. I personally don't use Apple product, but from what I heard many people prefer Macbook for editing, etc. I would like to know why, cause from what I search the Macbook has spec like I7-9750h and I7-9880h and well with mediocre GPU, while the gaming laptop I choose to compare is Dell Alienware Area 51M / M17 (depend on the spec that I would choose) but yeah the point is they all pretty much same spec which result in same performance in the end except the Gaming. Nb: For about battery, thickness, and weight it's pretty much doesn't matter since I believed he won't be allowed to bought the laptop outside from the house. So yeah pretty much just the spec.

I feel like the right one is a used macbook pro from a couple gens back for a decent price and some of the older ones still have upgrade paths IIRC, like 16gb, swap in an ssd and a quad core. That's what I'm getting from my 2012 macbook pro got that for free because of a bad HDD cable that I replaced for 15$ EDIT: Glad to see that was a suggest option, not many people do that and its nice.

hello dave please reply i have macbook air early 2015 and the screen has got some back horizontal lines and they are increasing drastically please let me know what to do please

peace my father has been cheap ipads and macbooks for ten years and with some persuasion apple always replaces it for a new one for free or for 200$ either way you have to hustle them peace
Argentiskyblau 15
I would take that up with apple then even if they say they cant help you always ask for a hire-up. Keep bothering them until you get to the right person.

That was a very helpful video! But, I have one question to you, Dave, or/and to all of you: I study graphic design, so is that a good idea to buy a 13' Macbook Pro? I use Adobe programmes a lot, like InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop...or is better to get a bigger one...but the truth is, that I like smaller laptops, but still, I don't know if the 13' will be enough...What do you think? I'm upgrading from 11' Macbook Air (2014)

I’m considering a 2018 Pro Touch Bar that’s at a very good price, is it certain that I’ll have problems with it like screen not working, keyboard issues and heat problems? Or should I just jump to PC. Haven’t had good luck with them either. Last PC was 2 years ago.

Hi, from my impression i always thought apple is incredibly convenient to use and base on my experience with windows laptop, they get overheat / hdd failure and cpu slow down easily. My question is, is today's windows laptop as bad as the olden days? I have been looking at macbook air for portability, school and work. Not much heavy editing etc. Is there any better cheaper windows alternative which has the same quality in terms of hardware and software like macbook air? pls advise thanks

I’m not sure how much Windows computer cost in other countries but in Singapore the price difference is not much for a Macbook. Considering that a Macbook is much faster in performance as a computer, while a windows computer has so much potential to get virus (with regular virus scanning) compared to Macbook that doesn’t have virus & no virus scanning required, windows takes time to shut down or boot up approx 20 to 30 min later due to a major windows update, I can’t understand why anyone should not get a MAC 😂

Schools require windows for certain programs. I've never heard the opposite for macbooks.
cornflake 2 months ago
Louis Rossmann says 2017 was the only year macbooks were unlikely to fail... but ever since I bought the 2008 so called unibody macbook pro, the screen would come unglued after 5 years and that's because the glue fucking melts from the enormous amount of heat generated by the thing... and they haven't even damn bothered to address the thermal throttling issue since the 2008 design- but made it worse with thinner designs and using more demanding processors. The nerve to sell people anything with a high clock speed, (let alone more than dual core) in a unibody is outrageous. I suspect intel couldn't be arsed to make any >2 core mobile processors until 2018 thanks to apple having so much success from selling these damn toasters to the mass of idiots. I remember when the batteries could be switched so easily before unibody... what the fuck happened?

hi dave, have recently discovered your channel as i have been researching a new laptop to buy. after extensive research i decided to purchase the xps 15 with OLED display 16gb RAM and 512GB ssd. After only using it for a couple of hours i have notice that is very slow. so slow in-fact that i compared it to my current 2015 macbook pro and found that its was significantly faster and much more slick and responsive. I choose the xps over a macbook as i thought it was more reasonably priced and powerful then the new 2019 Mbps. I am quite disappointed and annoyed with dell. could you please recommend a another laptop for me.

Is macbook enough with 8gb ram for programming, web development?
Luiz Carlos V. B. da S. Júnior
@JETLAI123 To be fair, I'm currently planning on buying a 13' macpro with 16gb RAM and 512 SSD so I can dual boot it and use windows and Mac on a single device. Probably gonna wait till the end of the year
Luiz Carlos V. B. da S. Júnior
@JETLAI123 More of a back end myself haha, but windows has so many programs... Actually you can dual boot a Mac to use windows on it, there is a software named BootCamp. Would recommend to use it only on macpro with 256gigs of SSD or more though...

Hey dave So I was thinking of buying an acer helios 300 2019 Im not a fan of the pricing and in my country it's like 3400 the equivalent of 1200 dollars so I'm tryna see if it is worth the saving and if it will last on the long term like about 5 years or so. Thanks in advance bro and waiting for your reply here.

Just replaced the battery in my late 2013 13" rMBP that's glued in. I wouldn't say it was the easiest thing in the world but it wasn't hard at all and only cost under $50 for the battery itself. Also replaced the rubber feet. It's as good as new. That said, it's still a dual core CPU and I am doing more video editing so I'm probably going to sell it :)

You are wrong MacBooks are the best if it is about windows 10 you can get windows 10 on MacBooks using boot camp assistants for free no hassle and you can switch to os again. I have a MacBook Pro 2018 Retina display and have windows 10 on it .
