    There has been a recall for 2015-2018 macbook pros over fire concerns. Check to see if yours is in the recall.

    What exactly are they doing to fix this? Seems to me people should be getting new machines instead since this has been around since 2015 apparently.

    Just think what you could probably buy a quality/reliable ThinkPad with probably the best keyboard in the industry for less than what it would cost buying an Apple laptop. If I was ever considering dropping $1200+ on a laptop I would look at the ThinkPad X1's or the ThinkPad E or T series before buying a laptop from Apple where keyboards have been an issue for several years now. And unlike Apple, Lenovo doesn't solder their SSD to the motherboard. They typically use standard M2 storage cards.

    I am a Dell lover, The xps lineup mops the floor with macbooks too. The inspiron 7000 lineup is better than the air as well.

    The XPS is slightly better in thermals than rMBP but looking at value, inspiron 7000 series is more worthy to buy than a xps.

    Doing video encoding, the xps is much faster no matter what the thermals say.
