    I couldn't help but notice you were running the MBP on battery power. Its peak performance is only reached when the power adapter is connected, from what I understand.
    The tests were performed plugged into power. They are not substantively different with a near-full battery, though.
    Sorry, I'm just going by the actual video, in which there is very clearly no power cord attached to the MBP, and in which the battery level is low and is not in a "charging" state.

    I mean, at 1:03 in the video you can't tell me it's plugged into power.

    In the video they even read out the exact value displayed on the screen as shown in the video. I'm sorry, I just don't understand how you can say it was plugged into power lol.

    If you don't understand the realities of a clean shot in video production, without the cabling, I'm not sure what to tell you.
    LMAO no need to patronize. Just say you did the benchmarks off cam and came up with the same results.
    Not patronizing. However....




    Alright, I genuinely wasn't trying to pick a fight here. It was confusing seeing an unplugged computer, and I thought maybe the benchmarks had been run without being plugged in which would have made their results not quite as high as they could be.My bad

    And btw, @Mike Wuerthele, I've been a reader of AppleInsider for probably 15 years. So this wasn't a criticism. I just work with Macs every day, so I'm interested in the new MBPs!

  • Tips: How to pair your AirPods with a Galaxy S10 -- or any other device

    Article title should have been:

    How to pair your AirPods with a non-Apple device -- and why it sucks.

    The ability to switch the AirPods from one Apple device to another with a single tap is briefly touched on, but under-emphasized IMHO.
