Hi everyone, I've been using apple products for a very long time and have always been happy doing so except for the last year. Photography is my job and I bring my Macbook Pro everywhere. This machine is from late 2013. I love the display and it has always been rather fast. I almost maxxed it out during the time of buying as this is the machine I use for 80% of the time as I am on the road a lot. It has 16 GB ram and a 1 TB ssd with a 2.6 ghz core i7 When I look at the specs of the current MBP I get disappointed. The problem is that my current machine has some GPU issues. It gets super slow often up to a point that it's not even possible to work anymore. Kernel task gets to 600% and I have tried everything to solve this. Often artifacts and GPU glitches get the better of me so I am 99% sure the GPU has issues. Being out of warranty this repair is probably going to be too much, so I am looking for a new machine. I also can't afford to bring this machine in for repair as I basically always need it. I'm a professional and I don't really care about the price of a new machine. I'd gladly buy a new Macbook Pro. But here's the thing: Apple doesn't make the 'right' Macbook Pro for me anymore. They cut all ports. I need my USB ports, hell, as a photographer I need my SD-Card slot. I hate to drag around converters and adapters. I always lose them. And no 32 GB? Come on, my current machine is 4 years old and isn't much slower than the new MBP. I expect an upgrade and Apple isn't offering me one. In fact: They're basically downgrading me as I am losing all my ports with buying the new MBP. 4 years after and no 'better machine' for me. I am disappointed. At this moment I am doubting what to do. I love the Apple ecosystem and I Looooove OSX. That's the main thing I'm sticking with Apple. But it's like Apple is forcing me to move away. I think many people are feeling the same way. Any advice you guys can give me would be very much appreciated. I am currently leaning towards the Dell XPS 15 with 32 GB and 1 TB SSD. But.... No OSX... Don't get me wrong, would really love to stay with Apple and not switch to Windows, but it's starting to look like I have no choice.
