It seems people from around the world are experiencing a plethora of hardware faults with these new MBP's. This is not a troll post but a post from someone who is incredibly frustrated about the way Apple is handling or not handling these faults and is failing to even acknowledge that they are lemons. What makes this worse is that some people are being charged anywhere from $700 - $900 to "repair" these machines which are very clearly defective from the factory. I think there are plenty more people from around the world that are having some of these faults but have either just not noticed them yet or are hoping that they will go away with software updates - they are hardware faults and they won't simply go away. Please have a browse through this thread (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7825434) as it lists a number of known faults that people are experiencing from around the world although it is titled "Popping Sound, MBP 2016". Some people are on their 3rd and 4th replacement. I myself am on my second machine which only lasted 3 months before a new hardware issue popped up. The thread lists, keys and keyboard issues, thermal issues, speaker issues, touchbar issues, software issues, quality control issues and worst of all - Apple has not openly acknowledged these faults. Please list your faults on this thread as well if you have or have had similar issues or perhaps you have new ones. The reason for this is that a lot of people with these issues are using this thread and threads like it to prove that these machines are in fact problematic because the technicians are failing to replicate these faults which is silly because in order to experience some of these faults they would have to be used day in and day out - not just put on a test bench to run some tests in the background and left on for a day or 2 with nobody in front of them. Some of these issues are intermittent and therefore hard to replicate on demand and some are permanent. If this is not the correct way to do things I am open to some advice but what I am hesitant to do is create yet another thread on the support forums because that will "dilute" the problem. If Apple can see (which I'm sure they can) that particular thread is getting a lot of attention they may finally decide to pull finger and do something about it. It's not about me, I have made up my mind, I am pursuing a refund for my machine and will not buy another one of these lemons and quite frankly I am off Apple for the foreseeable future. I have been a fanboy for 10+ years but a string of hardware faults with not only my 2 MBP's but 2 iPhones and Apple Watch all in the space of 8 months has put me off. Apple is not what it used to be. This post serves to merely caution those who are super excited to buy one of these expensive machines as I was. That is all. If you have not had any issues with your new 2016/2017 MBP that is great news you are the lucky ones but should you have any problems in the future hopefully these posts will serve as a leg to stand on when they trying to charge you $700 to fix something that was a lemon in the first place.
