      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.

                                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 😂

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?

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.

                                                                          Probably gonna wait till the end of the year

                                                                          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...
