Is the 2018 MacBook Pro actually reliable/trustworthy?
I’m in the market for a new laptop, and I’ve looked at quite a few different devices, both Windows and Apple. Unfortunately, I’ve read horror stories of failing components, bad wifi cards, expanding batteries, etc, customers being left high and dry.
I saw the MacBook Pro in a store and it looked alright, though expensive. Although I’ve heard bad things about Asus I’ve personally had overall good experiences with them, and was considering the new Zenbook line until I saw it would have Amazon Alexa. Quite off-putting, imo. Apparently the new MBPs have encryption chips that protect biometrics and the like, which sounds nice, even if the same chip can also act to prevent third party repair.
I wanted to ask a community of Mac (and other Apple product) users of their experience with the MBPs since 2016. Since I study, I’d really like something that I can use as my main device, that will be reliable and will not have problems that will leave me without the machine for days or even weeks. I’ve heard both good and bad things about Apple reliability and to be honest the keyboard issues, kernel panics, possible overheating and out of warranty repair costs are concerning.
I appreciate your time to comment
