Dave Lee Kudos for closer to honest reviews. I hate BS and when some one tells the truth I love it. I remember reading about throttling and of I remember correctly heat in a processor reduces the processors longevity. It really makes me wonder whos running their engineering department. They can't be doing a lot of testing because if the had surely they would know its throttling which is a worry. Apples products suck !! Come on open up and say it. 🤣👍 I can feel you holding back and trying to give then a positive review. I guess we all live in fear of the ramifications to our careers. Anyway - great reviews. Dont regret because I like hearing the truth and you've probably saved apple money if they can't fix this problem which I can't see how they can. Peace.

I have same issues with my brand new MacBook Pro 15" 2,6 GHz Intel Core i7 , 16 GB 2400 MHZ DDR 4 memory, price tag € 3300, and Adobe Lightroom! First 30-60 minutes it performs amazing. After 30-60 minutes my laptop get pretty warm after doing some edits in Lightroom. Then my performance get so bad I can't work anymore, every time I try to change just a small amount in Lightroom I get the rainbow circle, for like 10-20 seconds then finally the edit is changed on my screen. I went to the apple Genius Bar and they couldn't find anything "wrong" on the laptop. They said it could be the CPU, that adobe isn't optimized from those "new" CPU. I'm so frustrating at the moment! Payed so much for this laptop, use it for my business... and I lose so much time in editing my photos, I wish I would bought a way cheaper windows laptop from Acer or a Sony or Dell..... Strange thing... when I use my girlfriends MacBook Air 2018 it's a lot faster then my double the price MacBook Pro....

Everybody please share this video with friends and family, it proves Apple is thieving off vulnerable customers who aren't aware of these show stopping design flaws. There are far lower cost PC alternatives out there either laptop or desktop with far better thermals. I would NEVER build a PC that reached 100 degrees Celsius like the new Mac Mini and it throttles the CPU too so you won't get what you're paying for there either.

Hi Dave, a quick question about a small test about CPU speed during 7zip compression (smallest file size). If you have i9 in MBP please do a small test. Run simultaneous compression of large files, at least 12 files in Keka or any macOS archive, but Keka is very useful. Please observe CPU speed if it maintains at least base clock speed. Then compare it to ZIP with same level of compression. Thanks for help. I am wondering if there is a problem with 7zip or i9 processor in MBP.

Don’t worry, with the next Mac, they will add an option for a fan with the i9 for an extra $5000 Although, why do you need an i9 in the first place in a MAC? Not like you can use steam...

Apple just announced iCe Pad for US$ 499.99, a rechargeable, portable cooling pad that has a built in ice-maker, freon and force fans to help cool the new Macbooks. And for an additional US$ 299.99, you get the bottom insulation part of the pad to protect your lap or various surfaces from freezing while using it.

I got mine around April and recently it would overheat (and drain the battery as well) while it's closed (and we'd usually assume it's sleeping and not running) every time. I'm not sure what I should do honestly. Took it to the store and the specialist found nothing wrong with the laptop :/ I wanted to love it but damn, if I gotta spend this much at least be a functional laptop?

My No.1 choice as a professional for a portable solution is the Lenovo P51: Xeon, 4k, NVidia Quadro, best keyboards ever made (the original IBM) and 12 build quality military standards. Best part is you don't need an aircon attached to it...Besides the thermal issue, the fact that the drive is attached to the motherboard is ridiculous and altogether absurd. For me Apple products have become obsolete for many years now.

Been using Macbook as my primary machine for several years, but since the "Butterflop" keyboard, "Gimmic Bar" and "USB-C" only interface made me a customer they lost for ever. I handled the Matebook X at a Microsoft store and I was blown away by how beautiful and well built the machines is. Considered the Surface a while back but gave it a cold shoulder because the battery and SSD is sealed in and not user serviceable.

Who needs 32 gigabytes of RAM in a laptop, or home computer in general? That's more than a supercomputer from the late 1990s. Unless you are a scientist performing aerodynamic simulations or running hundreds of differential equations, nobody needs more than 8 GB of RAM, maybe 10 GB maximum for those gamers out there. Recommended RAM Table: 500 MB = Weak Sauce, 1 GB = Normal Web Browsing on old PC, 2-4 GB = Normal usage, 8 GB = Fast PC (2017-18 Microsoft Surface-book, 2013-14 Dell Inspiron 2350), , 10-15 GB = Gaming/Server systems, 20 GB = Absurdity, 32 GB = Supercomputer on your lap, outright absurd for any consumer computer...

thanks man! I just switched to Windows PC because Apple didnt make any fast laptops anymore. (i still work on 2.8Gz quadcore from 2013, and its fast). So like 100.000.000 other people i was super happy they released the i9, and I planned to buy it in October. Being a pro music producer, i was surprised that the i9 cpu was so super fast, compared to my new high end PC...Now i get it. Thanks for the video, i hope Apple comes with a solution. (thicker body for the real pro's, anyone?)

The other issue I'm having with the 2017 MacBook Pro are the navigation arrow keys. The up and down arrow keys are so small, I constantly have to stop typing to look for them. I have small hands. The space between the up and down arrow seems similar in width to the space between the up arrow and the shift key and the down arrow and the metal of the keyboard. Typing on this model is difficult at best and painful if you have to type a lot. The last thing I want to do is carry around an external wireless keyboard, as some have suggested.

I wish they would give more of a crap about cooling in a mac, fair enough it being silent in general use, browsing videos music etc. but the fact the fans don't spin up till around 80C is down right stupid.
