    Thats not the case here. Clients here care less what you use, but the product you deliver. That may be a case of YOU thinking that. I can guarantee that your "clients" don't give two flying you know whats, what device you are using to provide the result but rather the result. As for the screen, dell's 4k offerings have 8 plus hours battery life which is a full work day, microsoft's surface offerings are even better. Both have everything you are looking for for hundreds less.

    In the UK people could care less what you use as long as you get the job done. Windows laptop or MacBook it doesn’t matter here.

    An example, I went to KPMG and Accenture, two massive worldwide consulting companies. What do they use? HP Probook 14’’ laptops....

    Of course they don't care. that's just some false reason to justify his buying a macbook and using windows on it only.

    It is better than the XPS 15 and the X1 Carbon, what else do you suggest?

    Razer Blade 15 with its paltry battery life, retarded keyboard layout (and crazy noise)?

    Aero 15 with its trash keyboard and ugly looks?

    I can agree prior to this revision, the XPS/X1 traded very well against the MBP 15, but now MBP 16 is definitely the best in the category. Lets see if 2020 XPS 15 can beat it.

    Did a blender render benchmark cpu only on my i9 Mac vs 8700k water cooled clocked at 4.8ghz windows desktop.

    Windows.

    The laptop finished roughly 10% faster and maintained 3.1-3.2ghz on 16 threads for the majority of the run.

    The thing I dislike about Black Magic is that it just shows sequential performance, it does not show the more important QD1 (Que Depth 1) 4K read/write performance which I feel makes a much bigger difference in day to day use, putting aside large file transfers.

    Apparently from some in depth tests I saw a few weeks ago (I will try to find, might be NotebookCheck), it’s got a decent SSD but the MacBook Pro’s 4K read/write performance was terrible compared to the most the other SSDs ranging anywhere from 1/3-1/2 of the QD1 4K performance of most of the other NVME drives.

    What other SSD benchmark tools are available for Mac OS?

    That’s the thing, on MacOS, I don’t really know any other free utilities. I think NotebookCheck tested in Windows. I saw some like DiskMark in the AppStore but it’s a paid app that had middling reviews.

    Edit:
    I found AmorphousDiskMark seems like a Crystal Disk Mark copy:

    I might give it a try.

    Nice find man, here's my AmorphousDiskMark Score:

    But why is the 4K QD32 Write so slow compared to the read? Unless the app is buggy?
