I don't see any difference in term of performance on my MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) after updating to Mojave, I just found the dark mode to look really nice and the stacks feature on desktop makes my files looks properly arrange according to the type.

Sent my Macbook Pro 13” tb for keyboard replacement yesterday at MacCity Aeon Cheras Selatan, smooth experience. Made an appointment with Apple support live chat. The first time I chatted with them was more than a week ago, did some diagnostics to exclude software issue, but they can only make appointment for a week prior, so they told me to make appointment at a later date closer to when I’m free. The second time I tried to make appointment, I couldn’t access the live chat from my case ID, I also couldn’t access the live chat, because my warranty is over (makes me wonder how I was able to access it the first time hmm.gif ).

Anyway, I clicked the “exclusion” part and “purchased software problem” (can’t recall exactly, but something along the line like this). And managed to get the Apple advisor connected, told them my case ID and he was really helpful and made the appointment for me. So fyi, if you can’t get to Apple support, try it this way.

The AASP staff told me they will change the top case, and will likely be the same model of keyboard. Not sure if the battery will be changed, forgot to ask him. Takes about 1-2 weeks, they don’t stock any parts, after full diagnostics only order the parts from Apple so the turnaround time will be longer.

Another interesting thing he told me was, the screen gasket can’t be changed by itself from Apple, it only comes with display and lid as a whole unit (expected). He noticed some finger smudges on my screen and took a microfibre cloth to clean it to make sure it wasn’t a coating failure. He said if the coating fails, Apple will honour a free replacement (whole display and lid) once for this issue. Not sure if it’s true, but he works there and surely knows more than I do.

Hope this helps the others in the process of getting their keyboard replacement.

UPDATE: MacCity called me on 29 Sep to inform me that my MBP was ready for collection. So the total turnover is 9 days for my case. They replaced the top case together with new battery. However, they ruined the rubber gasket around the screen even more, probably the technician was pressing on it with his/her nail, caused another crack doh.gif . Could have tell them about that and demand for an explanation, but I just wanted my MBP back asap and left.

The keyboard they replaced, is different from the one that originally came on the late 2016 model, the guy that took in my MBP said it will be the exact same one. From the looks of it, I think it's the 2017 version (bottom row updated design). The sound and tactility is slightly more prominent than the 2018 models, so I guess it's not the 2018 version like Apple have mentioned. A factory reset was done to run diagnostics, weirdly enough, my windows partition is left untouched, so I guess that's a plus. I have no idea what came with the top case, the thunderbolt ports felt tight just like new, I use the top left one the most for charging, so supposedly it should be a little loose. Now it kinda feels like new again, another plus I guess.

The man from switch also advised the same. The aluminium body cannot be too near to the power socket.

So I'm gonna be upgrading to a MBP (2018) 13/i5/16/512 pretty soon. That means getting a USB-C hub because I don't own any adapters. So I wanna ask this community what are your choices for a well rounded USB-C hub. My requirements are a minimum of 2 USB-A and an HDMI port and should be a wire connect type and not an attach to the laptop type.

I've been keeping an eye on some Aukey hubs. But I have used one on a dell XPS before and I found out that if I connect all 4 USB-A ports on the hub one of them doesn't recognize. So probably doesn't have enough power going through each port.

So I'm open to all suggestions. RM 300 should be the budget for me.

I just have my MBP 15 2016 replaced with new keyboard. They swap the whole top case with battery.

And I notice that they replaced it with 2017's version keyboard too. but i don't think it has the latest 2018 keyboard that comes with the membrane to block out the dusts.

whole process took me 5 working days.

port wise, i cant tell the difference because i pakai all the ports to charge depending on the position because i always carry it out.

but did you notice some difference in color. as in the space grey of the top case looks a bit darker than the rest of the body? like the top lid and the bottom cover?

apple center staff told me because the case is new, belum oxidize lagi laugh.gif
