I bought the i9 with 32gb and couldn’t be happier. I wish the SSD was cheaper but it’s anazingly fast. Until Apple puts a more aggressive fan profile, I installed Macs Fan Control. When rendering this week or doing cpu intensive processing, I just turned the fans on max manually and no throttling in FCP.
Since I spent so much money on this thing I have been reading up on all the different “issues” that people have found. The removal of the recovery port actually makes sense since Apple is using HW encryption on the drive now.
Do I like everything on the new MacBook Pro... I don’t, but I’m using it next to my 2016 model and can can see the incremental improvements.
