    It's been a sweet two months with Catriona Gray (2019 16"). Finally found her eldest sister, Silver Sable (2006 15") for a photo shoot.

    They share the same depth and width but 2/3rds the height.

    I have yet to encounter any problems with her. Although I wish I bought it this last month as it is being sold for $1,984 + $53 shipping

    Apple would not have as much flack with their transition to USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) if they did the following and kept MagSafe 2.

    15"/16" should have 4 ports on each side since 2016.

    * 2016 - 6 ports (USB-A, HDMI, 1GbE or other I/O) and 2 Thunderbolt 3
    * 2017 - 5 ports (USB-A, HDMI, 1GbE or other I/O) and 3 Thunderbolt 3
    * 2018 - 4 ports (USB-A, HDMI, 1GbE or other I/O) and 4 Thunderbolt 3
    * 2019 - 3 ports (USB-A, HDMI, 1GbE or other I/O) and 5 Thunderbolt 3
    * 2020 - 2 ports (USB-A, HDMI, 10GbE or other I/O) and 6 Thunderbolt 3
    * 2021 - 1 ports (USB-A, HDMI, 10GbE or other I/O) and 7 Thunderbolt 4
    * 2022 - 8 Thunderbolt 4 ports

    Worth the money if you're coming from any Mac notebook earlier than 2016 or if you dislike the Butterfly Keyboard found in models 2016-2019.

    My sole complaint is that base model RAM of 16GB has not changed in more than 5 years and 7 months.

    By comparison previous increase of base model RAM was much more quicker.

    16GB RAM on July 2014
    8GB RAM on June 2012
    4GB RAM on March 2009
    2GB RAM on June 2007
    1GB RAM on October 2006
    0.5GB RAM on January 2006

    16" should have 32GB RAM in the base model at the same price point of $2,399 for the Core i7 & $2,799 for the Core i9. 14" should have 16GB RAM in the base model at the same price point as the 2019 13".

    If they did this then very few people would whine about how "expensive" Macs are.

    I plan to keep this until the next redesigned body so more RAM the better.

    BTO RAM of the 16" currently tops out at 64GB.

    Intel allows for up to 128GB so why not offer that? If that draws more power then indicate it at during the configuration and documentation.

    Better GPUs like a Nvidia GTX or RTX aren't used by Apple because these parts draw more power than 100W USB PD standard. The limit was partially made so notebooks can be charged on airplanes. Laptops that require more power cannot be charged in flight.

    Assuming airplanes had outlets that output more than 100W the problem with more powerful parts in a notebook is that it will require a larger/noisier/heavier cooling solution. This is demonstrated in the weight/size difference between the 2019 15" model with a 87W charger & the 2019 16" model with a 96W charger.



    Apple is the only company that makes the most powerful USB PD charged laptop.

    Apple design products with the user's environment in mind. Something a lot of PC users forget.

    Today marks its 3 months and 3 weeks.



    If you are waiting for the 2020 model it should come out 5-8 months from today.

    Upgrades would be new 10th gen Intel Core chip, new AMD GPU, possibly 32GB RAM and mini LED (not micro LED).

    My one regret is not waiting for the Core i9 base model to drop to $2,399

    Hey Hi!
    The issue was glitch with the graphics... Every-time it powers on it will show a rainbow color randomly across the screen following by the apple logo.
