Just got a used fully loaded 2016 MB Pro for $1.6k, upgrading from 2012 MB Pro. Wish me luck 😩.
Why does soldered sound like soughtard
anyway, you buy apple for the OS and the design. so I think, we cannot compare apple with windows machine
can someone give me this wall
In 2019 we still use USB-A
This transition to USB-C is taking wayyy to long…. almost 2020 and we’re still in that “transition” you talked about. And personally. Not a single person in my family even knows what is USB type C p/thunderbolt lol. My new XPS 15 will have a USB type C that I won’t use for a long time.
2016-19 models AKA "MACBOOK PRO-BLEMS"
so if u buy this laptop for 1500$, this is a good deal ?
Anyone watching this in 2020
Meanwhile in 2020 people still use USB and SD cards
Wrong – "In 2018 you won't miss all the IO ports". Well it's now 2020 and my 2016 MBP is sitting in a closet. I went and bought a used 2015 MBP so that I can get all the IO ports and the proper keyboard back. Dongles suck. No travel keyboard sucks. non upgradeable RAM and memory SUCK. The best MBP ever made is the 2015 version.
2020 still need ports lol
2020 here.. still giving a fuck about usb 3.0
All the programs that I need to use run smoothly JustU.Faith/Mac-Book and without any bug, the screen resolution and size are perfect, I personally love the feel of the new keyboard.
Wow! I'm watching this video, and I can't believe how much you were gentle to apple a couple years ago hahahha.
Now it seems like you just want to slay apple lol.
2020 and usb a is going nowhere
Hi! I’m from 2020. Good news from the future: they fixed the keyboard. Bad news: we still need usb A.
Holy hell the usb dongle comment did not age well at all lol
"In 2018 people will not care about USB ports…"
It's 2020 and guess what…
2020… still pissed about no USB type A 🙁
Pc keeps usb 2,3 and adds
usb c. If you have headers you can add a card
The beginning of this video had me dead…. 😂
Now 4 years but we still saying USB C is the future…. I am lost…..
I partially agree with you on the need for everything to switch to USB-C, but the SD card slot is the one port they should've kept. You'll always need a dongle for a SIM card, which virtually all creative professionals use and isn't going away anytime soon.
its 2020 i do care about USB A and HDMI , Card slot
Lol four years later and we still don’t like dongles
Hi Dave, what will you suggest me to buy I have have 999 USD. A used but newly replaced bottom-half MBP 15 2016 or MBA M1?
Hello, a quick note from 2020. Still annoyed about the USB ports …
I have a question does this MacBook Pro have the butterfly keyboard? I’m asking because I want to buy one but I don’t like that butterfly keyboard it’s to stiff to type in.
Well this didn't age well. "2 years from now, in 2018, people will not care about the old school USB port."
2021. We kinda still use it/ need it.
9/10 mice and keyboards still use it. Bluetooth isn't quite ubiquitous especially for gaming mice. I'm just asking for one USB-A port. As a legacy, an homage to what came before it.
Im from 2021 and everyone is still using usb a. 🤷♂️
Can someone travel back in time and say him that at least the half of humanity is still in need of an USB-A Port in 2021?!
2021 and still using usb ports 🙂
I just bought one, no regrets. Not all of them have a keyboard problem…
in a year from now, no one will be using USB type A anyway"
Meanwhile, in 2021…
That prediction about USB-C hurt… They did us dirty. Apple was right here.
Good point: With the SSD being soldered on, how does one replace it if the SSD stops functioning? Especially at this price point. Major deal breaker.
Apple 2016 : Let's remove ports
Apple 2021 : What about adding the port's we removed ? ,Yes we should add them back.
Had to go back here after watching Dave's 2021 16 inch Macbook Pro M1 Max impressions video
WORST MACBOOK ERA 2016-2019
Finally we have returned to the PRO
"but I think most people can learn to like this keyboard"… no, most people learned to loathe and hate this keyboard as it was a vile typing experience and utter trash in comfort, usability, and reliability.
I'm from December 2021.. What a change
It's 2022 and USB A is still more used than type c in laptops
