    What to Replace 2015 MBP with?

    My mbp has the 2.5 quad-core i7, 16gb of ram, and 2gb AMD R9. I don’t quite understand the new M1. People are raving over it, and that excitement is great, but I don’t know how to compare that to more traditional hardware. Is a Mac Mini M1 an all around upgrade for me? I was about to buy a 5k...

    Hi, I'm looking to finally get an external SSD (preferably 1tb) for my 256gb early 2015 13" MBP to keep my FCPX libraries on. I guess only the thunderbolt ones will make the idea work? I don't have a huge budget for this so is the idea just not a smart one, or is there a good Thunderbolt 2 SSD...

    Im about to get delivery of a Black Magic pocket 4k that records to an SSD. The SSD is connected by USB C but my MacBook only has thunderbolt 2 and USB 3 ports. I know you can get adaptor cables but is this all just snake oil here. Has anyone actually done it and got it to work successfully...

    Recommend updating macOS on 2015 macbook pro?

    Hi guys, I have this theory that iPhones start to become obsolete when you update your iOS. It's just a matter of time before the phone's problems increase and you need a later model. So I don't update my iOS for as long as humanly possible. Usually towards the end it's a race between my...

    Sleep Wake Failure

    After closing and re-opening the lid of my Macbook Pro Early 2015, sometimes it will crash, play the startup sound, and take me back to the login. After I put in my password, it will resume all my applications again, and most of the time an error message will popup saying there was a sleep wake...

    2015 MacBook Pro in 2018?

    The new 2018 MPBs seem to be fine in every way, except the price. I’ve been almost at the point of ordering a 13 inch 16/512, but for a bit more a 15 inch 16/256 may be a better option. That’s where a 2015 MBP 15 inch comes along. Just saw an APPLE clearance 2.2/16/256 for the same price as a...

    My first Apple laptop was the MacBook Air which I bought about 5 years ago, and it introduced to me what Apple was all about. The design, the quality, and the superb blend of useful features made me a convert from the Windows world and I never looked back since. Everything from the great...

    I like you 2017 macbook pro, but you re going back...

    This is just MY experience and under my working needs. What I do: Graphic design: illustrator, photoshop, lightroom, indesign, dreamweaver. No 3d, no video editing. When I use the MBP? I use a 2017 iMac as main machine, so the pro is for travel or when I want to leave my desk and work...

    Buying a 2015 MBP in 2018?

    Hey! so I posted a thread here a few weeks ago about what specs I should go with buying a 2017 MBP nTB model, and somebody suggested that instead of the 2017 models, I should consider the 2015 models. As I'd probably have to fork out $700 for keyboard repairs, which seem to be a recurring...
