What are you-all expecting from the Cannonlake rMB (late 2017 or early 2018)

Think we'll see any major leaps in any areas, like CPU, GPU, screen, keyboard, ports (2? thunderbolt 3?), etc.?

I would kill for 2 TB3 ports
Will Cannonlake support TB3 natively? If so, then we'll see the MacBook have 1 TB3 port. I don't see Apple adding a second port.

My ideal Mac would be the 12" MacBook with the Touch Bar. I like the 13" Pro but prefer the smaller size of the MacBook.

That they fix the rattle problem.
I understand you feel bad about your computer but screaming "rattle problem" all over the MacBook forum isn't going to help.

Can you return your computer? Perhaps you could sell it?

It might be helpful to some that you have gathered information about this issue but now I feel that you're just trying to make yourself feel better about your computer.

I feel many people find about issues like this only because they go looking for them and try to replicate the problem. For example I would've never thought about this but having read your posts I'm surely going to wiggle and shake my MacBook when I get it just to see if it "rattles".

The more people become aware of the issue the more likely we get a solution.

There is no point of hiding a problem and try to ignore it.

Also my response was still relevant to the question asked.
So why so upset?

To answer to your first question,no I cannot return it as it developed after return period.
Selling it means loosing a lot of money and besides a replacement is likely to have similar problem.

If I remember correctly Apple told you that your MacBook is fine and the rattling is normal and that they will not replace it? If so, I think you'll have to accept the issue or find a different computer (which of course means losing money).

There are very few posts about this. It is obviously not something that bothers people very much/at all.

I politely suggest you try to move on.

I feel like I'm about to feed a troll.

If this really was a problem, the issue would have many more replies (and they'd be much more vocal) on Mac Forums. There certainly are/were Apple issues that warrant discussion on these forums:

- poor batteries in iPhones
- video issues in old Macbooks
- weak hinges
- I'm sure there are others.

I hold Apple to a high standard because they charge a hefty premium for their products. I'll gladly complain about poor battery life; chintzy memory specs; expensive memory upgrades; delayed inclusion of the latest hardware, etc. because it's warranted.

But even in your own survey, you've got a positive reply of eight people who say they experienced a rattle problem. That's eight out of about 900K MacForums users and eight out of probably 100K of those forum users who regularly visit the Macbook sub-forum.

That is less that statistically insignificant. I've never seen a rattle problem on any Macbook/Macbook Pro - especially not those with few moving parts, and I, nor any user would accept rattle on a laptop that has no moving parts. If there was, I'd take it back.

first of all keep your feeling to yourself and don't call me a troll;I've had enough Mac computers and Apple products in general in the past 2 decades to gain some basic rights to express my dissatisfaction about one of their products that I purchased and payed for without a random,clueless nobody trying to harass me.

you simply haven't experienced the issue and have zero knowledge about it,why not just mind your own business instead of trying to provoke the affected users calling them names and such.

but for the reference of other users who maybe reading this:
even in this forum there are many complaints about the issue if you search,there are many more if you google it elsewhere.
also in my last contact to Apple (after failed repair) ,they asked me for some videos to send to their higher up engineering teams,later on they responded that they are aware of this noise problem however they insist it won't affect performance and not a fault.

lastly if this was not really an issue, why did Apple decided to replaced the expensive screen, then replace the even more expensive the logic board & SSD in an attempt, to "fix" the issue? the cost of repair was covered by Apple care+ but it was almost close to a new machine.it means they also believed it's an issue.
there was simply no fx for it and at that point they (the Apple Store technicians) didn't know this.

I'm not thinking about it anymore and I've moved on.
I've accepted these machines have a minor design / engineering flaw and that there is no fix for it.
it's disappointing and annoying but there is nothing we can do about it at this point.
end of story.
