Hi all, My first and current MBP is an early 15” 2011 model which has the infamous GPU issues. Mine has failed 4 or 5 times in the past 6 years and when it went again last week I decided I have got my moneys worth and can’t justify another $600 to $700 to get it repaired in the knowledge that it will only happen again in about 12 to 18 months. Because this issue has been such a massive headache for the life of this MPB, I’m now genuinely concerned about getting another MBP that will only let me down again and again, costing me income and repairs like this one is now doing. I love the look of the new 2016 models but I’m a little concerned about the inability to replace individual components like the SSHD. Eventually minor components like this will fail on any machine, but because it’s soldered to the logic board, replacement will likely be something that only apple can perform and hence ridiculously expensive. Which has led me to the consideration of a late 2015 15” model. From what I understand it still has SSHD that can be individually bought and replaced by anyone with a decent understanding of computers BUT I’m worried about the GPU failures happening on this model too. I’ve searched around on the forums a little but can’t find any solid trends to indicate that these machines suffer from the same failure that my 2011 does, but does anyone have any other information contrary to this? Do they have and Achilles Heel that I need to be concerned about like this paperweight of a 2011 does?
