I am still using my Jurassic park MBP 2006 tho

Too bad they only updated the touch bar version. Was hoping an upgrade for the baseline model too. bye.gif

Ever since I got my iPad, I really enjoyed typing on the on-screen keyboard - no mechanical parts, no sharp keyboard sound, and no need to worry about keyboard issues plaguing the current MBP.

I really hope they would redesigned the MBP with a full-fledged on-screen keyboard instead of the half-baked TouchBar. Maybe 2020 perhaps...?

if need 16GB ram, i think directly go for 15inch better since it has it default.

if u are not really running VM, actually 8GB is good enough. but of course if budget is not a concern, good to have more RAM for future proof.

personally, if i can choose again, i may upgrade my 2017 MBP 13 TB from i5 to i7 instead of upgrading to 16GB ram.  tongue.gif
*
why? do u think cpu i5>i7 is more importain than 8gb>16gb

currently i'm using 4gb MBA, i dun have much complain about cpu speed, but when i open a few more program, i can feel the bottle neck for my mb are the 4GB memory, so my next purchase must want to have a lot of RAM.

You'll notice a huge improve going from 4gb to 8gb rather than 8gb to 16gb.

Nowadays, the sweet spot for ram is 8gb. Like he said, 16gb is of course better for future proof.

I will think that i7 can make more difference for me.

4GB ram is known to be below minimum requirement. no matter what system. one will feel slow and not enough. 8GB is the minimum.

Yes but from your linked post, it doesn't say it solves the dust and debris issue(dust easily getting into keyboard holes and making them faulty).

That's what the MBP 2017 users are complaning about,

i too found most of the sources saying that 3rd gen butterfly keyboard is only quieter dint actually fix the issue but until i saw this from ifixit, most of them judging too quickly without going deeper as usual

the new design should protect against debris but if dust somehow ever gets inside, even more harder to take out
