They fixed it!

  • New keyboard
  • Escape key returns
  • Bigger battery
  • Starting at 512GB SSD up to 8TB SSD(!)
  • Up to 64GB memory
  • i9 Processor
  • Same price as old 15" model
  • Reverted to traditional 'inverted T' arrow keys instead of half size up/down annoying

You've stolen my post idea. 😅
Had to repair my 2017 15" MBP keyboard today. If the keyboard is really fixed I will switch as soon as my bank account allows me to. 🙈😂💸

Oops, sorry! 😆 I could be very tempted. I have not upgraded my MacBook since 2010 and I currently use a 2014 mini. This could replace both with a nice dock.

WAIT ... WHAT? 😱
You don't use docker?^^ A full project docker setup with phpstorm kills my MBP 13" 2015. 😅
The new 2017 15" MBP is able to run it and even a full Adobe premiere pro video edit. But the new keyboard is a killer feature. The only thing I wait for is an external magic keyboard with touchbar!

I am a humble man. 😆 I do most development on a remote VPS. Keeps those pesky dependencies off my computers. 👀

And ties you to internet!?
I sometimes work in bus/train or even plane. And also kill my internet if I move GBs of data into gDrive but still want to work. 🤔
And wasn't docker made to keep the dependencies off your computer!?^^

I'm currently trying to find jobs so I can afford this! Want to get the 64gb version with i7 (as I'm quite not sure if i9 is worth the money) and 512gb ssd. My Mac Pro 6.1 has 64gb RAM right now and it's working fine for everything I'm doing. Mobile system with 64gb ram, why not? 😂 😄

Haha, I use a 2011 Macbook Air and a 2010 (!!!) iMac. If my iMac ever breaks I'll "upgrade" to a 2009 Mac Mini which has the connections and drives I need 🤣

I would be happy if I could trade in 2 devices which would get replaced by a new 16" MBP. But before I buy one I will wait for some keyboard experiences and convince my boss to buy one. 🙈😅

2009: My boss tells me if I get an iPhone, he'll pays for it; I get a 3GS. $0
2015
: My father in law gives me his old iPhone 4. $0
2016
: I buy a second hand iPhone 5c to replace it. -$120
2017
: Someone gives me their old iPhone 6, but I sell it because the storage's crap. +$200
2018
: Someone gives me their old iPhone 6+ with good enough storage, which I've been using ever since. $0

If it breaks, I'll revert to the 5c until someone is discarding theirs again...
Hope you liked my story 🙂 It's about patience and the real value of things.

3.800€ vs 3.300$(3000€) - 800€ price difference only because I live in Europe ...

DE includes tax I assume, I’m fairly sure US doesn’t as it depends on state

It's to make up for Apple not paying their taxes?
We just show VAT and any other taxes included in the price by default in Europe. 20% extra in the UK but varies by country.

They can’t get out of VAT (although other VAT registered businesses don’t have to pay).
