    2018 MacBook Pro 15” - Fans Behaviour with External Display

    Hi, I’ve recently got a 2 week old baseline 15” MacBook Pro (2018) and got a question about its fans. When I’m using the Mac with its own display, everything works fine. Fans come on with heavy load, easily going down as it eases. However, when I’ve got my single LG 4K monitor plugged in...

    Has any had an experience on the New iPad Pro charging other devices. How quickly is it draining the pro's battery. Is it worth it?

    URGENT: Is 8GB ram sufficient? Opinions needed :)

    Hi everyone, I have come across a very good and limited (5 units) sale for an almost new MBP 2018 with 8GB of RAM. I'd aim for 16GB, but the deal I can get is only for the base Touchbar model (but with 512GB storage). I know a lot of you guys know more about this stuff than I do, so I really...

    MBP 2018 keyboard poll: problematic or fine?

    Please only vote if you've owned a MBP 2018 (third generation butterfly keyboards) for at least 3+ weeks AND do not use it in clamshell mode with external keyboard :) I've had three lemons in a row, currently on fourth which seems to keep going back and forth as I'm trying to decide whether...

    How big is the difference between the Old and new GPU on MacBook Pro 15’?

    Just like what the title say. I’m really curious as to how big would be the difference between the Radeon Pro 560X versus the Radeon Vega? Because I have a new laptop coming tomorrow, but if the difference between the two is huge, I’m thinking of just returning what I purchased and wait for the...

    Did you order anything today?

    I ordered a new iPad Pro 10" 128GB in Space Grey. I used to have the 12.9 iPad Pro but found it too big. I already have a 15" Mac Book Pro 2018 TB so I don't need another big device to carry. I also want to use the iPad with my Mavic Pro 2... If it fits... Let me know what/if you ordered today...

    Help Me Decide If I Should Switch!

    Typing this on the XS Max. Not liking that I'm experiencing issues with WiFi, especially given the price. I'm considering a switch to Android for my primary device. I'm fairly familiar with them; have rooted in the past, unlocked with various techniques from XDA etc. I've had Nexus 7 and 9...

    MacBook Pro 13 2018 cooler after Mojave

    Hi all, Just wanted to give my 2 cents with my experience. A base-model of the MacBook Pro 13 2018 (TouchBar) is running WAY cooler after updating to a OS X Mojave. This is with same usage, for example running Safari with multiple YouTube videos/Netflix, mail and 4-5 apps in the background -...

    No 2018 iMac?!

    [June 4, after WWDC 2018] It did seem fairly unlikely that the Mac team would release an iMac half a year after the iMac Pro at the same time as they worked on the Mac Pro and Mac Mini, but I figured that maybe they could’ve just done a cpu refresh and thrown a touchbar keyboard with touch id...

    AT&T - Apple Watch Series 4 Preorders

    I figured it would easier to manage if we have carrier specific threads for those of us who chose to preorder through our providers. This is my second preorder for the Apple Watch. My first one was for the S0 42mm SS, which I got directly from Apple. I have to get the GPS + Cellular combo, since...

    2018 MBP 15 Coil Whine

    I just bought the i7 2.6GHz, 512G version and noticed there is coil whine. It's pretty audible all the time and becomes loud when I use VM. Anyone else having it?

    Log-in background not showing currently set wallpaper on latest Mojave public beta?

    Yesterday I received my new 2018 MacBook Pro 15" and after updating to the latest High Sierra update I enrolled my Mac in the beta program and installed the latest Mojave public beta.

    Considering i9 MBP - Reinstall and Disable APFS?

    Well, despite my better judgement I'm considering the i9 MBP. The reports I'm seeing from Logic users are a lot more significant than I expected... Anyway, I've been on 10.12 for a few years now and haven't gone near 10.13. After some reading, it would seem that there's some rationale behind...
