Hi all, want to ask several question on behalf of my fren. I never own any macbook b4, hence cannot give details comment. appreciate your advise here

1. Macbook US set warranty can claim in Malaysia Apple store. is it true? no hassle if anything happen? seems the price diff kind huge.

2. Macbook pro 15 can play dota 2 max settings? this only game he played.

3. worth to buy extended warranty?

1. can claim but the services available depends on country. like bolehland has no apple store. so the services available depends on the authorised service centre instead.

2. confirmed can. dota 2 is considered not a demanding game title.

3. depends on individual. for me, i never buy. so far so good. normally macbook does not fail. if there is any major issue, normally it is 'global' also, which apple may cover it under their quality programme. after all, it is depending on individual risk acceptance level. sometimes, if really unlucky, u maybe the one that is getting the lemon set. tongue.gif

not surprised. but this is a sign towards new design soon also.

Last time 2015 MacBook Pro is selling at its cheapest price last time before 2016 redesign. it makes sense also since it has been a while the R & D cost should have been compensated and production cost should also be lowered by now.

The 2 ports sufficient to be use? I mean the power source already take out 1 port. So only left 1 port available.

not enough, u are likely need to use USB-c adaptor to expand for more ports.

four ports are still better obviously. Especially four ports u have the choice to place ur power at either left or right depending on ur table setup.

but given the price, it is really good for anyone who wants to get a MacBook Pro.

Expected already Haiz. That’s why I think is best to have minimum 3 ports but Apple been Apple got a whole team to on the best strategy to milk the customers.

Still thank you for your input. I may only buy it on next year. Wanna see what Apple release

Oh ya, I saw a lot of people bashing that this new MacBook Pro only got 1 fan, is it really sufficient for Final Cut Pro?

Will have throttle issue like the more power MacBook Pro?

you can wait till the next redesign.

throttling issues happened to all laptops. you cannot expect the same as desktop.
2019 macbook pro has been reported to better heat dispersion due to the latest gen processors.

I just got i9 8-core last week, only today can try FCPx. So far it's totally faster than my 15" 2018 (2.6Ghz i7). Spent a few hours exporting stock footages.
The fan is not too noisy

wow. one year only machine already upgraded. tongue.gif

i9 for this 2019 macbook pro should be fine. it is cooler than earlier gen of the cpu.

but interestingly, the new 2019 cheapest base model 13-inch macbook + epu is alot cheaper than the top spec 15-inch 2019 macbook but can perform as close to it.
