Hello, MY '16 gave up to the flex gate issue I written a post about few weeks ago. Keeping it until the repair program comes out to fix it and get rid of it. Meanwhile I upgraded to the '18 model and can't help but notice that it is 1. getting hot under basic tasks I used to do before on my '16, as well as that colorful loading circle that comes on very frequently ( in fact just did as I type this). My '16 did that but definitely not this frequently. Both models are base at 256GB Touch Bar to compare '16 & '18. Everything updated and checked, is this normal? All help appreciated, makes no sense to me and I was kind of expecting a better experience. Also have Apple Care Plus because it doesn't look like Apple's MacBooks will last more than it warranty time. Thank you for all the feedback and input!
