    Well this experience is getting worse and worse. My first 2016 MBP — 15"/2,7/1TB/460 — suddenly stopped taking a charge after two weeks sitting on two desks. Now I'm on the second one — 15"/2,9/1TB/460 — and after two days the right fan just started to make a horrible noise — mid-use, no movement of the machine — sounds like the fan is suddenly grinding against the casing or something like that. Well, I'll give 'em one last chance on Monday, we'll see how that goes.

    Same for me, first did have heat issues, the second one does have graphic issue and something that are loose in the mbp it's ratteling when I just tilt the mbp.

    I'll replace it tomorrow, I'm just hoping that this one are going to work.

    That is a shame. I am sorry that this happened to you! These kinds of things happen though. I have had several hard drives (expensive ones too) die within a week of purchasing. I had one GTX 970 that was faulty when I got it.
