To those with a 2015 Macbook Pro… how’s it doing?
I’ve got an early 2015 MBP, which I know is a computer that’s well-liked in this community. Old enough to still have magsafe, plenty of ports, and a decent keyboard. New enough to still have pretty competitive specs.
But honestly, mines starting to show its age.
The screen has all of these scratches and marks that have shown up over the past year. It’s not from actually getting scratched, they’ve just appeared from the edges and grown in.
The charger is falling apart, and has broken through to the wires in 5 or 6 spots. I’ve taped up all the wounds but now it looks like a burn victim.
The fan is starting to run louder than before during video editing projects.
The battery is at almost 1300 cycles.
The screen and charger issues I believe are related to humidity. I moved to a very humid country and then both issues started soon after.
Anyway, I suppose I’m wondering if I’ve just been particularly hard on mine (living in a humid place, doing a lot of video editing) or if other 2015s out there are showing their age in similar ways.
