    It actually is not fixed. My macbook pro has struggled to run simple programs like MS Word and Google Chrome without overheating. Now my computer freezes often, and the software fix created a whole mess of problems. When I was on the phone with Apple, the tech couldn't solve the problem, then got my serial number, then after about a minute the call was ended by apple… We either need full refunds, or new computers sent to us.

    I use my macbook pro 15 mainly for programming. I didn't get core i9, just core i7 is way more than enough for me and I never had any throttling issue. Yes fans kick start pretty loud when I run 4 virsual machines at the same time, but it's pretty normal for laptop. So far everything run pretty smooth and good. Keyboard feels modern than regular windows keyboard.

    Why can’t we have laptops like this but keep it a big thicker if needed, but include replaceable slots for hdd, battery and Ram.

    Hey Lisa! Love the channel and appreciate all the work you put in! I actually ended up with an X1 Carbon after weeks of research, and a big chunk of that was from your videos. I had a question about RAM… Will the percentage of RAM used slow down my computer? For example if I'm using 60% of my RAM will it be slower than if I'm using 10%? I'm a computer dummy so sorry if this seems like a stupid question. Everything I know is only based off of what I found I would most likely need based on the last few weeks of reading.

    Please tell me which laptop to choose: macbook pro 2017 or Samsung notebook 9 pro? I do not care about price, quality is important. I want to mount 4K video with special effects. Unfortunately, I do not understand 90% of the video, because I do not know English and live in Kazakhstan. I'm waiting for help …

    My question is: is apple throttheling the i7 to sell the i9? I ask that for three reasons. First: in the the Dell XPS the i7 is capable of pushing over 1200 points in cinebench. Second: in a i7 vs. i9 Video I have seen that the i7 throttles and runs a bit cooler than the i9. Third: Intel's specifications about the i7 allows over 4 GHz on all cores.

    Still poor cooling compared to dell, asus etc. I don't get why Apple always gets a pass on most of its design fails.

    Who is to blame if you decide to buy a machine that won't allow to replace a broken ssd or ram once the warranty is gone? Don't do it.

    Looks like that Apple isnt anymore what it was under Jobs. under his command the designs were great, maximizing the price without impacting the great quality apple was. But after he passed and with this new @||@#|@43 guy (cook) apple computers are the worst. unreliable, prone to break easily and their design is a flaw to say the least. they are already loosing market share. And that is shocking knowing microsoft crappy win 10 OS, one of the worst OS of all times!. 🙁

    Easy fix… Just make the temperature limit higher to make throttling level lower… Bad side ur CPU will burn out so fast😂… GG apple

    Weeks before the new MacBook launch, Apple announced to be working on their own chip sets.
    That tells me Apple was aware of the trouble they would have with Intels new range .

    Hi Lisa! I have the first generation MacBook 12” with 512GB at the moment and a gaming Pc with i7, 1TB ssd, Asus 144HZ 27” Monitor and nVidia GTX 1070. Want to sell the MacBook and put the good stuff from the PC in an egpu… Would you recommend the 13” 2018 MBPro with 512GB – i could get it new for about 1800,- € here in Austria? Keep up the good work, nice greetings! Sam

    Limiting the tdp is not a solution, it's like limiting the acceleration of a car because the cooling system cannot handle full acceleration temperature, then what's the point of putting hardware that cannot be used correctly? the i9 can get 1600 points on cinebench look at linus tech tips video about the asus thic laptop, it's still an enormous waist to get the i9 when the i7 can do tge same and is cheaper. Still doesn't make sens to me at all, I would be angry with customers if they forgive apple for this stupid "fix", while it looks more likely they are just laughing at our faces…oh and btw I cam tpd limit myself, I dont need apple to do it for me, I jist want them to do good cooling or not sell i9 laptops, because I'm not a fool and a stupid software fix won't make me believe they can fix the world wirh it

    Yeah, rigghtt. Now go plunk down $7k for one of these shiny 'leet devices that will never perform to its full potential, looks like last years model, and last years model and is built to be disposed of in a 2 year period. Professional grade, indeed. Quality rated by shiny case and LCD only. Rubbish.

    They put an i9 inside it to look good on paper for marketing and so they can charge you more for an expensive CPU which you can't use to its full potential. It's basically a scam.

    Laptop makers (and apple) are all going thin and light, meanwhile at Intel they can't get new fab process working right and mobile CPUs are getting more and more powerful but also much more power hungry (which translates in heat)…I am not comfortable with my cpu running always in the 90's degree range, I've seen lots of reviews of newer laptops and most (if not all) do this.
    Also when we will finally see AMD mobile CPUs??? not the low power U series and not the desktop part, every week or two there is a new exploit for spectre/meltdown bug….just sucks beign stuck with intel/nvidia.
    How hard can it be to take a 45W TDP mobile Ryzen and pair it with a good Pascal???

    All and good, but Bootcamp is still a royal throttling mess!

    Hopefully Apple will get around to that too.

    Now they increased the throttling temperature effectively reducing the device's life span. Go ahead, spend $5000 on this poorly designed laptop, it will probably stop working just when the warranty runs out.

    Are they on the same level ? there are some thin and light laptops with better performance.
    http://oi65.tinypic.com/etcmye.jpg
    And yes,the MB is the thinest of them all. But most of those other have upgradeable RAM (some up to 64GB), more than 1 storage option ( many including 2.5" drives), more powerful graphics. All that takes space. If they were to make the same compromises as Apple, they would have even mode similar weight and thickness, and still a better cooling )

    Im sure someone really chomping at the bit for more performance will delid the cpu and replace the ihs paste. Linustechtips will probably do it and post a video.

    My problem with MacBooks more than ever now is price, they just eep becoming more and more expensive. It doesn't help that you cannot replace the ram or storage anymore either… it ended up pushing me back to Windows. The specs on the Macbook I got on a £500 Windows Laptop, a third of the price, and I can upgrade some internals and have easy access to the battery. Also their new Keyboards suck and their screens aren't anything special anymore either… it seems like the gap closed now and Apple are struggling to keep up.

    I really do not get the price difference though, and I hate Laptops made from aluminium, the weakest material around. Make it out of Plastic FFS! I can throw a Plastic Laptop around, but the MacBook you have to baby or it gets destroyed.

    Aluminium isn't even expensive either, where I work it's the cheapest thing along with steel and copper. In fact buying, recycling and moulding Plastic costs us far more….
