The Most Improved MacBook Pro!

If you need a MacBook, the 13" is waaay more powerful this year than it has been in the past. It might fit the bill if you don't need a bigger screen. Thanks for watching!

Hey Dave. Love your channel. Would you recommend me go with a fully specced out 13" or an entry level 15"? I edit 1080p videos once a week and i usually have lightroom open, as i'm learning photo editing

Usually I agree with you buddy but I think you're off on this one. There's so many laptops (as you noted) that are at a better price point. However, not too many out there with the 8th gen 6 core processor. How about future proofing and going with the 15in MBP? Maybe because I'm 6'6 the extra weight in not an issue. Thank again, always appreciate your videos.

One problem I've had the last year: I bought 4!!! High-end Windows products (Hp Spectre 360 Ch032ng, Microsoft Surfacebook 2, each twice) and all of them had significant problems, which forced me to return them. Therefore I am now considering switching to an apple product for the first time. I just need something that works. 🤷‍♂️

Hey Dave, just wanted to say I love your videos. It's what made me decide to buy my XPS 13 9350 a few years back. Although I agree with the 9370 being the better laptop in terms of sticker price, could you talk more about maintenance and service fees down the line in future reviews? I've only had my 9350 for about 2 years now and all I can say is Dell maintenance and service is a NIGHTMARE. The first year wasn't so bad, I had to replace the fan and the battery, which was only about $100 total considering I replaced it myself. But by the second year I had ram failure which led me to replace the whole motherboard because the ram is soldered on. This ram failure cost me upwards of $500. I'm not sure what what kind of repairs Apple users have to face after owning their laptops, but if investing a couple hundred more dollars in a Macbook upfront saves me even more money in repairs down the line I'd definitely consider the Macbook. I'd really love to hear your input. Thanks again, Dave. Lots of love from California!

I know my case isn’t the same as everyone else. I bought a speced out XPS 15 9570 partially due to your reviews and favoritism of the XPS. Within 2 weeks of the purchase date the keyboard, speakers, and internal power port all stopped working due to hardware failures. With over 10 years of apple products I’ve never had hardware issues like that. So what did I decide to do? I asked for a refund and will be going with the product that I know will work. (Current laptop 2011 MBP 13” 16/1TB) Thanks for the great content.

Actually the Macbooks i5 8259U cpu is better than the Dell XPS 13s i7 8550U, and the 4K touchscreen could seem to be a huge improvement, but not really; less battery life and (in my opinion) touchscreen is useless. So for me there's no point on saying that the Dell XPS 13 has much more value than the Macbook. Good vid tho!

Dave Dave Dave, the only reason to buy MacBook pro 13 for video editing is FCPX. After 10 years of premier I wanted a light small laptop that I can edit video on location, FCPX+13 MacBook pro allow me to do it (4k from Fuji xt2). It took me a week to get used to FCPX and I actually in love with the magnetic timeline, once you learn the Short cuts and little tricks.

I'm stuck choosing between the 13 MBP and the XPS 13. Reviewers praise and love the dell device, but user feedback is so negative. Backlight bleed, display issues, coil whine, some even say the device stops working properly within a year. It's terrifying, specially for people who are working their arse off to afford it. On top of that, I am a foreign person, soon travelling to the U.S., buying a device but then heading back home in a few months, and I can't afford to pick a bad device.

I recently switched from the Dell XPS 13 to the MBP. While the Dell XPS 13 is a great device, what you perhaps fail to touch upon in all your reviews is how constraining the 16:9 ratio can be as opposed to the 16:10 on the MBP. While these numbers might seem similar, there's a world of difference in tasks such as web browsing, reading, or anything other than watching videos and movies. This for me makes the MBP 13 much more of a win.

The 13" MBP has enough CPU for most applications, but the one thing its missing is the GPU power that some applications like 3D modeling and gaming use. I think when ryzen releases a good mobile APU, then we will finally have ultra books that really can do anything.

Actually the touchbar is not so bad, after two years of using it. I kind of find myself attached to it. To the point that i would resist to use an external keyboard to the Macbook because my fingers will be far away from the touchbar. This is from a guy that hate the 2016 butterfly keyboard very much! I will find myself still using the laptop's keyboard if i'm not going for long typing sessions.

Great video Dave! Would have loved to hear more about the GPU though as it’s not a dedicated one.

With this upgrade, I’ll have the same CPU power as in my current MBP in a much smaller chassis!

So basically Apple is forcing you to use the touchbar even if you dont want it. Either you pay the price premium to use the touchbar and accept that the touchbar has become an integral part of macbook pros or u pay slightly less for no touchbar and way worse performance from those dual core cpus. I wouldnt be surprised if Apple takes away the option without the touchbar altogether next year.
