    So far mojave is running smooth as butter on my 13" 2018 MBP - the machine is running noticeably cooler and the battery run longer, seems like a win so far.

    anyone else noticing the same?

    So far so good on my MacBook pro 2018 13 inch..the dark mode is BEAUTIFUL..installation was a breeze..at first under Updates nothing appeared said no new updates available so I contacted apple and they said since this is a whole new operating system I have to go under featured in app store to install, did that, easy installation no hiccups or issues..I am LOVING dark mode, especially with my eyes I always get headaches when its too bright so this is perfect for me..also added the purple accent color, its just beautiful!

    Same here, the computer is running noticeably cooler.
    Overall, I'm very pleased with this update.

    I tend to wait for the .1 or .0.1 release but good to hear the positive reports.

    thoughts on installing it on a Rmbp 2012? Will it run smoother than High Sierra?

    Good for me too But got one KP crash (also got one before in HS).

    I am also very satisfied that I got the 13'' MBP 2018 instead of 15'' MBP that I returned.

    Really smooth and does everything I need. It can even run one of my favorites game in 60fps.

    for the panic kernels some have solved by setting the security level of the T2 chip on average. Try it.

    That's what I'm doing, though I am tempted to upgrade, my MBP is running flawlessly and I really don't want to see it getting worse.

    I did a clean install on Monday, I have not had any issues with it. It does seem to run a little cooler.

    Rocket League in highest resolution with lowest setting.
    It does lag a bit but nothing bothering.

    You can lower the resolution to 720p for better results but I do like the original resolution.

    Also not to mention that the fan doesn't even spin when I play it, It gots hot but not that hot.
    That's strange because in my first 15'' 2018 MBP (which I returned) the fans always spins when playing and you can hear it.

    And that's on OSX not Windows.

    Should I update my 2017 nTB for better battery? I get 7-8 with light to medium web usage + audio streaming.

    I just upgraded a newly bought (from the refurbished store) 2017 nTB MBP to Mojave and it runs like a champ. Fast fast fast with zero issues. And, I'm getting about ten hours on the battery with casual internet usage and some heavy word processing. So Mojave isn't just for the 2018 Pro; runs great on the 2017 Pro as well.

    No way it does run great with the bugs it has.

    Especially booting is pathetic.

    I have found zero bugs with Mojave 10.14 running on my 2017 nTB MBP. But I'm not Joe Power User, either. However, I do prefer the light mode over the dark mode. Dark mode gives me headaches. Other than that little annoyance, Mojave runs great on my MBP, and I have no reason to lie about that. Zero.
