MacBook Pro 2018 review: can it stand the heat?

  • Published on:  7/25/2018
  • The new MacBook Pros are here with modern processors, an updated keyboard, and True Tone displays. In this week's Processor episode, Dieter explores whether these changes are enough to make professionals trust these machines. After benchmarking the MacBook Pro last week, we retested the core i9 with new software that fixed our thermal throttling issues. But, that question of trust still remains. Correction: The video features a specs graphic with "Radeon Pro 650x 4VRAM." This should read "Radeon Pro 560x 4VRAM."Subscribe: The Verge on Facebook: on Twitter: on Instagram: More: http://www.theverge.comCommunity guidelines: to Verge Science on YouTube, a new home base for our explorations into the future of science:

    A little drama/joke makes the video good, but too much takes it away from the focus.

    What a fragmented and disorganized review. This is the first time I saw such a horribly put together review from The Verge.

    I think the notion of "maybe we expected too much of this laptop" can get thrown out the window when this laptop STARTS at $2400.

    Cut the campy attempts at humor. Makes this unwatchable.

    This is by far the worst review by The Verge yet. Disjointed points and repetitive arguments on top of this weird conversation/cut scenes made this a pain to watch.

    I miss good old days 90 second on the verge where all things were to the point without a mess like this video.

    Normally, The Verge reviews are the ones I look forward to the most but this was a hot mess. Waaaay too much pointless banter and "flashback" scenes. Couldn't take it seriously.

    2:55 it's actually the Radeon RX 560x not 650x

    Its not "too much to expect" when Apple is "charging too much than what we expected"
