– The new MacBook Pros are here with modern processors, and
a slightly newer keyboard, and True Tone displays. But here’s a question: is what’s here actually enough to make professionals trust these machines? You know what, before
we get into all of that, we should honestly just
start with the basics. This MacBook Pro looks exactly
like the last MacBook Pro. It has the same four Thunderbolt ports, it has the same touch
bar, it has basically the same Retina display. The only external thing that
has changed is the keyboard. Apple says they redesigned
it to make it quieter, and in our testing, it is, in fact, just a little bit quieter. The other thing that’s new here is they’ve added True Tone to the display, which we’ve mostly turned off because we care about color accuracy. We were all set to really
get into that issue of trust and talk a little bit about the stuff that’s eroded it over the years for pros. But then, we got a curve ball. Last night, which is a week before you’re watching this now, this happened. – The problem, though,
is that this chassis, the MacBook Pro, cannot
cool the I9 properly. When you look at renders,
and I’m using Adobe Premiere, after a few seconds, we’re starting to see some very serious throttling. – So, Riker sitting. It’s Tuesday July 24th, and
Apple has just admitted that there is, in fact, thermal throttling on every single model
of the new MacBook Pros. They’ve released a statement,
which I’m gonna read, and they’ve released a software fix that’s available right now. So, here’s their statement: “Following extensive performance testing “under numerous workloads, “we’ve identified that there is a missing “digital key in the firmware “that impacts the
thermal management system “and could drive clock speeds down “under heavy thermal
loads on the MacBook Pro. “A bug fix is included in
today’s Mac OS High Sierra,” yada, yada, yada, “We
apologize to any customer “who’s experienced less
than optimal performance “on their new systems.” Okay, key takeaways here,
Apple’s not changing their performance results,
they say it’s still the same. We are going to re-test all of that. We’re gonna redo all of our tests, so stay tuned for that
later in this video. To really get into it, we
actually need to talk to one of those professionals who does professional stuff with it, and hey, look over
there, it’s Vjeran Pavic. He’s one of those. He edits videos, and directs videos, and does photography. We should talk to him. – Thank you. All right, so in front of me, we have the new laptop, the video we were just talking about, and to my left, or your
right, is my personal laptop, the 2016 MacBook Pro with the touch bar, the one that kicked off the
entire redesign of this line. The 2018 build is thoroughly modern with super powerful specs. It’s on par with the Windows laptops that came out earlier this year, and Apple is getting
better at updating faster for the MacBook Pro line, but a better way to ask Dieter’s question about trust is this: does the power of this
thing offset the hassles? For the past few days, I
literally locked myself inside one of the conference rooms in our office in order to compare these two machines. I benchmarked Premiere Pro Final Cut 10, and just used it for my everyday tasks. But there are a couple of areas
I really wanna focus on now. – Hey, Vjeran, actually, you know what, can we just talk about the
specs for another minute, ’cause there’s a lot going on here. – Hey, Dieter. – Hey buddy, how’s it going? Okay, so, there’s the T2, which handles a bunch of the internal
machinations of the computer, there’s faster DDR4 RAM, and there’s this new, faster SSD, which does file operations,
like, stupid quickly. There’s also the fact that you can get a six core processor on this, which is actually more
than a standard iMac. – Yeah, and you can get
this I9 processor as well, which is really powerful. Scrubbing through footage
worked really well, rendering files worked
well, as you expect them to. Realistically, you probably wanna do a couple of things at the same time, so let’s spread out that RAM power, 32 gigabytes of it in this case. So, I open up Spotify, Lightroom, After Effects, and I screen
recorded my entire process, which might’ve been an overkill. I noticed the laptop struggling a bit, the mouse cursor was kind of jaggy. Jaggy? That’s not a word. So, I just decided to
stop the screen recording. Anyway, once the video was done, I started exporting them on both machines at the same time. So, I was gonna show you the
results of my MacBook Pro compared to the new MacBook Pro, but at this point, it seems like old news, so instead, let’s talk
about the performance of the I9 MacBook Pro before
and after the software patch that Apple released earlier this week. All right, let’s start
with Premiere Pro first. In both of the tests,
before and after the patch, the export times were basically the same, 11 minutes and 35 seconds. Once I switched to Final Cut Pro, I noticed some improvement. What used to be a four
minute and 35 second export now was down to two
minutes and 26 seconds, so yeah, thermal throttling was an issue, Apple released an update, and looks like they’ve fixed it. As for Premiere Pro, we still need to run a few more tests to have
more conclusive results. To be blunt, though, it
wasn’t that much faster than my two year old MacBook. The improvement was as little as 10%. For now, the only thing that we can assume is that Premiere Pro isn’t
optimized for this machine yet. Okay, back to our regularly
scheduled programming. A lot of the time, we
work out in the field, covering events which
require us to shoot, edit, and deliver videos in a matter of hours. More often than not, I just found myself leaving the 2016 MacBook Pro behind because the 2015 version
had better battery life. Also, I didn’t wanna deal with dongles, but that’s another topic. – Dongles, I heard dongles! I’m always here to talk about dongle life. – You heard correctly. – Okay, but jokes aside, it is a genuine source of angst for people
with these computers. – Yeah, the point is that
there was kind of like a one, two punch here. I didn’t trust the battery, I didn’t wanna deal with a dongle, so just bring my old MacBook with me. – Okay, so what do you feel about it now with this new MacBook? – Well, the speed helps to
make up for some of that, but you still have to deal with dongles, and for me personally,
there isn’t a perfect, portable dongle dock that I can use. I need SD card readers,
super fast USB ports, but also Thunderbolt 2,
which nobody supports. – For me, the big one is, like, can I really trust this
keyboard long-term? – Right, and the speed did improve, as well as the keyboard. Not only the sound, but
there’s nice resistance to it, although this is a new machine, so that might change over time. – Okay, and then I guess the last thing on our list is the battery. How is that? – Oh yeah, the thing I was talking about before you interrupted me? (sighing) – Sorry, man. – It’s okay. Anyways, so what we know
about battery in this machine is that it’s slightly bigger than before, but that’s meant to offset
the more powerful processors. And I really don’t care if
my battery lasts longer for, you know, reading, surfing
the web, watching movies. I want it to last long for
more intense video editing. The 2016 MacBook Pro lasts
about three hours, maybe less, and as far as I can tell,
this one is about the same. Not saying it’s worse, but
it’s definitely not better. – Now, at the top of the video, I asked can you trust this machine that’s sitting in front of Vjeran? – And I asked if all the extra power can offset the hassles that come with it? And yeah, this laptop finally proved that it can perform as you expect it to, or close to what I was expecting it to. – Right, but the question is, what were you really expecting? – Well, I was expecting a
little bit more noticeable bump in performance and a better battery. I didn’t get that bump in performance, and I definitely didn’t
get a better battery. – Yeah, but the question
here, honestly is, maybe everybody’s expectations
were maybe too high. Everybody’s frustrations about the Mac got laid on top of this,
you know, unibody frame. – The same frame that really
can’t handle thermals? Although, apparently they
got fixed, so you know. – Yeah, but also, they’ve been really squirrely about the keyboard. They say it’s only there to be quieter, but we also kinda know it was redesigned to be more reliable. It’s like, with this Mac,
Apple just keeps walking face first into controversies. – People who buy these machines, they don’t really care about
controversies that much. They buy it because of the way it looks and the way it’s built, and this build kinda backfired this time. This thing is not gonna eliminate heat as much as a bigger, more
chunkier laptop would. – That’s okay, as long as you know what you’re getting yourself into. Yeah, I mean, for my question about trust, do I trust this thing? Yeah, I guess. It feels like what we ended up with here is the same laptop that a
lot of people genuinely love and a lot of people are
genuinely frustrated with, only now it’s faster. Maybe it’s not as fast as deep down we know a pro laptop could be, but maybe that was just
too much to expect. – All right, I guess it’s
time for the end card, so all you, buddy. – Okay, well, thanks
everybody for watching. Let me know in the comments where you think Vjeran just ran off to, and also, watch Verge Science videos. They’re great. Last week, they did one about wildfires, and this week they did one
about weathering storms. It’s like they’ve been
subtweeting Apple this whole time.

    I make apps for a living. I have the 2016 as a work machine and 2014 as a personal machine and much prefer the 2014 model in almost every way.

    Would I pay this ridiculous price premium for a non-repairable 2018 machine with a maybe-fixed-keyboard, a 1 year warranty, or even more for a 3 year warranty? Absolutely not.

    When I bought MacBook Pro I didn't ask "do I trust it?". If you pay 2500-4000 euros for a laptop, you shouldn't need to ask if you can trust the device or not. Only time you need to ask it, it is when you buy a laptop around 300 euros or so. If you need to ask the same question before buying MacBook Pro, then there is something wrong. Either the issue is you or there is something wrong with the design.

    So.. Can you trust a laptop which is running around 95-98 C at 2.8 Ghz? And that is under its base clock speed (2.9Ghz). How long do you expect it to work without having internal issues because it is too hot all the time when actually doing something else than writing an email?

    I think it feels like a letdown when your most demanding (i.e. actually "pro") users are almost universally ambivalent about a product and its performance. $2500 is a lot to pay for ambivalence, $7000 just seems mildly offensive.

    LOL. It’s like people have only just realised computers adjust performance based on internal temperature. Thermal throttling isn’t a crime or a bad thing. All computers do it, the 2018 MacBook Pro just had a bug that was fixed. It still does it but correctly like every other computer.

    When are we going to stop blaming ourselves for Apple's mistakes and actually take them to task for not being up to the mark. Good enough is NOT what you expect from a $2400 premium laptop, specially when the Core i9 doesn't really differentiate from the Core i7 version despite being $300 more.

    It is faster, it does have a better keyboard…and the T2 chip should add a little capability for the same price and the previous version MBP. Sure, Apple could go bigger but that would defeat the purpose of creating a nice portable unit to have with you. Also, these performance improvements come at the same cost as the previous version(ie, no price increase). The only difference being that you can get a bigger SSD and more RAM which you couldn't before(for more cost). People just want something to complain about I guess!

    These are not well engineered. The keyboard is horrible and will damage your joints due to the lack of energy dispersement. Microsoft and other vendors are outclassing the performance of the MacBooks at a lower price and more features. He was right in this video…the 2015 MBP’s are a better buy.

    Which Apple product is free from controversy or limitations? Maybe the iMac pro. But that’s just Apple. They killed off headphone jacks but technology hasn’t gotten there yet, and again they bet big with all USB C. Also not the the perfect world yet right. USB A still a big thing. Go to any new hotel and likely they might have a USB A port on the wall socket but never C. Or a recent model car so far I know Mercedes has a C, the rest? Maybe still A.

    I suppose they have to find something wrong with it in order for it to be interesting, but a lot of the negative stuff here sounds super nit picky. I mean, sure, if you’re really pushing this machine to the max on a regular basis as Vjeran seemingly does, then yeah, maybe. But there are, of course, lots and lots of pros out there who don’t do video editing or photography work but could still benefit from the latest processors and extra RAM. For all of those people (including myself), as with previous iterations of this computer, I suspect you’ll be perfectly fine and really enjoy the machine.

    >>> who is using a 15" MBpro mid2015 2,2Ghz or 2,8Ghz i7 16GB and using it mainly for Photoshop and Premiere Pro?
    please share your experiences if it keeps up well enough to do photo + some video editing.

    My 15" 2010 MBP recently gave up. Squeezed out the last drop and it worked like a beast for 8 years. Upgraded the ram to 16GB tough and popped 2x SSD's in it. my use in a laptop is lots of Photoshop some Premiere pro and daily browsing multitasking.
    > Now I am a bit in a crisis choosing a new upgrade watched many many videos on the 2018 MBpro but well I might want to wait for a few more years until Apple comes up with something new in 2019 or 2020 and so on. In the meanwhile I tend to go for an older model such as the 2015 MBP's read lots of good things about them. As a test I bought a brand new MBpro a few days ago. 15" mid 2015 MBpro 2,2Ghz i7 16GB 256GB (with the idea of upgrading to 512GB or 1TB). Tried out this model for a 2 days with very minimal use. Placed 40GB of photo files on the SSD. But after a few seconds I already noticed that the colourful Apple 'loading logo' occured way too often even when scrolling through jpeg files. When opening 6-8 raw files in Photoshop at once the fans start to go loose + the bottom heats up pretty heavily or when opening big PSD files (which is very normal with such a heavy load). But mostly what bothers me is the colourful 'loading beach ball occurred' constantly. Multitasking was not happening it was waiting waiting waiting and waiting and waiting before the spinning colour wheel would go away (even just when scrolling through jpeg files in finder using the arrow keys on a normal pace). I brought the laptop back for a refund. Still you read very good stories from people using a mbp 2015 model. Will it make a difference to go to a 2,8Ghz i7 instead?

    * Now I don't really know what to do next, was this 2,2 Ghz i7 just not working properly, it came straight out of the box brand new and everything looked fine nothing weird besides the loading logo. I can pick up a refurbished mid2015 2,8Ghz i7 16GB 1TB Intel Iris Plus version but can't really test that one out. What do you guys think? Or do you have a 2,8Ghz i7 2015MBP ? And what are your experiences in Photoshop / Premiere Pro does it keep 'loading' as well most of the time when doing simple tasks ? please share your experiences with me if you are indeed working on a 2,2Ghz or 2,8Ghz MBP2015 model

    Even basic video editing grinds down within a few minutes with the Pro – what a waste of money. I tried playing some 3D games and it got hot in just 5 minutes – I had to stop playing mostly because of really bad lag.

    You can type an ellipses by typing Command-semicolon. Typing three dots make you seem like a plebe.

    Worthless video about a specific device…
    What about the i7 macbooks? What about the 13 inch?
    I'm interested in buying a macbook and you provided 0 info. Give me back my 9:20 back!

    I hope Apple will add a SSD slot in the Touch Bar versions of MacBook Pro as in the non Touch Bar version of 13” MacBook Pro. Who want to throw their $3200 4TB SSD upgrade away if some part of the logic board fail after warranty period is over? And who want to throw their logic board away if the flash memory in the SSD get corrupt in a few years? Flash memory wont last forever.

    One thought I have is: Maybe Apple wanted to have a SSD slot in all models but lack of space in the Touch Bar versions made it impossible at introduction? And maybe they will find a solution for this by future optimizations? What else would be the reason only to have it in the non Touch Bar version of MacBook Pro?

    So they have come up with a patch to stop the throttling, but all the heat is still there. I wonder how that heat will effect the longevity of the machine. At this price point, there should be zero compromises!!!

    Music is also too loud. The video got my attention more on the background music than the content itself.

    You guys really shouldn't rush this review. I'd rather wait a little more than watch a disorganized review and wasting my time.

    TBH, I think we should definitely expect more than just "a little faster" when you buy any laptop that costs as much as the MacBook Pro. It is not like this is an upgrade you're doing every year. You're not always doing this, so you really have to expect to get the best when you pay this much.

    I’m about to purchase 2018 MacBook Pro but lately I’ve been hearing & seeing a lot on faulty 3rd gen butterfly keyboard. I need it for edits basically so if it’s such a big mess with these laptops then what’s the solution for it? & if I should go for another laptop then which one I should go for? Which would be equally powerful…

    My MacBook Pro 2012 let's me make music and do graphic Illustration with good enough performance. So what defines a computer not being good enough then ? Would a 2018 MacBook pro be a big upgrade ?

    I got my answer! It's *3 hours battery life*, ⏲️
    aligns very much with my Macbook Pro 2018 and 2019 experience! 😞

    Can you recommend a ultrawide monitor, with a vertical resolution higher or equal than 1440, for this macbook? i am interested in the lg products, but i've read a lot of compatibility issues between them and the mbpro 15 mid 2018 with i9 processor and the Radeon Pro 560X… and no one has still made a video about this combination.
