        Well shit, I got the 13” 2016 MacBook Pro i5 256GB Space Grey and spent damn near $1600 for it... Is it worth me selling up for the 2019 edition?

                                Lol I'd hope a computer that cost 1200$ or more is fast...tbh unless you really really need to edit on the go just spend that money on building a PC and by a cheap Chromebook for everything else. Will get you more power and the ability to keep upgrading.

                                      I would like to see it compared to the i7! Can’t believe this i5 has hyperthreading.

                                        I just bought it. Love it. 128gb sucks but cloud storage is the way.

                                          I just bought a 2018 baseline Pro and after three days, this was released! This is just a better deal.

                                          128gb Storage and 8gb Ram is insufficient.

                                              Great review! I use a 2011 MacBook Air to create motion graphics in After Effects CC 2019 and tether to Capture One 12 without any issues or slowdown whatsoever. I'm glad that this is continuing the tradition and that Apple is still one of the most reliable brands.

                                                  If you upgrade this to 16 GB ram and 256 GB ssd, it will be the same price as a Dell XPS with a 6 core (Core i7-9750H
                                                  9th gen) cpu, 16 Ram, 512 GB ssd, and GTX 1650 4GB discrete graphics.
                                                  The way you Apple fans justify these overpriced hardware is getting to ridiculous heights these days.

                                                        The people who disliked this just bought the previous-gen MacBook pro before watching the video.

                                                          Is it possible to make a comparison video where you test real world performance differences between this entry level and the 4 thunderbolt ports version? Also, how much of a difference does the SSD make to the more 'pro' like version?

I've never used a Mac, but I've had an iPhone before, and really liked iOS and Garage Band so... and I know u can plug a guitar and use digital Amps and effects and also record it on GB. So seems like better software than windows.

With that being said, the base line one could very well be the one that you don't wish you hadn't bought when Ice Lake drops.
