    What will I miss the most from a MBP?

    Hey everyone, I have been a MBP user for over a decade. My most recent MBP was a 13” M1 with 8GB RAM. They are excellent computers that I recommend to anyone who will listen! I’m getting a new notebook because I want to upgrade to 16GB. 8GB has been surprisingly effective but a little too...

    Not sure if there are many Resident Evil fans on these forums but holy smokes am I impressed with how the M3 Max is running RE4 Remake. With every single setting maxed out and running at native res on the 16 inch MBP, I'm getting a solid 90fps (some dips down to the 70s in intense action and...

    Hey everyone. Need some help on deciding on an M3 upgrade. Currently have 2017 15" MBP with i7, 16GB RAM and 1TB Drive. I'm sick and tired of the Butterfly keyboard and long render times and low battery life. I work with Adobe Premiere Pro editing 4K footage. And also Logic Pro for Music...

    Need help! Have problem with replacing the broken SSD on MBP 13 (mid 2014)

    Hello, I have a 13-inch MBP mid-2014 and recently its SSD stops working. I happen to have another SSD in SO-DIMM form factor retired from a mini PC and I thought maybe I could use it in the MBP to save some $$. Notice that this SSD used to be the boot drive for that mini PC so it has a Windows...

    MacBook Pro battery at 90.3% after 7 months

    Hi, my boyfriend bought an M2 Pro MacBook Pro in February. He usually keeps the battery between 20% and 80% (pretty obsessive even) but we noticed the charge isn't lasting very long so we checked with Coconut Battery and it says capacity is at 90.3% despite it being less than a year old. Is...

    iPad Air Cursor stuck on iPad

    The thread title is probably not the best. But, let me explain... I use a MBP, and from time to time, and iPad Air, too. During a meeting earlier this week, I was using my MBP, and had the iPad open on my left side (MBP was on the right). I was merely moving the cursor around with the...

    Anyone else have their screen randomly flicker on the new 16" MBP?

    I've had my 16" MBP M2 Max 96GB RAM / 8TB drive for about a month. Yes, I maxed the ever-lovin' crap out of it because it's my first new Mac since 2005. :p The screen will occasionally and seemingly randomly flicker. It doesn't seem to do this consistently enough to tell what is causing it. I...

    Out of Warranty, Outside the MBP Keyboard program window Claim exception

    It's now 2023 and I have a keyboard issue with my 2016 MBP 15 touch bar (A1707). I got in contact with Apple via phone and had a senior advisor extend my out-of-warranty replacement for the keyboard as my allowed time frame to have it replaced had passed. So there was an exception granted. I...

    Should I be worried about the sound when shaking my MBP?

    Hey folks on the forum, regarding this issue, I'm pretty sure I'm seriously ignorant about it. See, a few days ago, my colleague mentioned in passing that sometimes there's a slight "sound" when shaking his MBP, which he showed me (it's actually not that bad). So, I tested my own MBP (M1 Max 16)...

    M1 16" MBP w/ 65w monitor - OK?

    I've got a M1 16" MBP that I currently use with the Dell S2722QC monitor. I like to minimize the number of wires on my desk so I only have the monitor plugged into my laptop. However, it just occurred to me that the monitor I use provides 65w. Is this a problem? Will it damage my MBP battery?

    Battery Capacity 2021 MBP 16

    Dear All, I recently took a look at the battery capacity of my 2021 M1 Pro MBP, bought around February 2022, and noticed that it has dropped significantly after 45 charge cycles (compared for example to my much older iPhone, after 2 years still at 88 percent). According to settings the maximum...
