    ​+Serge Meeuwsen Apple has a monopoly on Mac OS compatible hardware, which is the whole reason why it's able to get away with selling trash hardware at a premium. Mac OS in turn represents a monopoly on viable desktop UNIX (as Linux user I can tell you that it's not viable). The whole point of having a monopoly is to sell less for more, and the amount of monopoly power Apple gets from the US govt is absolutely obscene. Nothing will change until the laws are fixed. To me, Apple's aesthetics scream flashy marketing, which is why I don't like them - though to be fair everything except thinkpad screams of that. However, aesthetics are also a reason why they can't offer a competent machine. They favor shiny aluminium over light and robust composites. The aesthetics are another way in which Apple seeks monopoly power - the want something that stands out and "builds the brand" as opposed to something that works.

    Do you really believe that because Macbook is thin, it cannot have standard SSD's or non soldered ram? Really? That is just greed from Apple side, nothing else.

    +Max ML I will attest to the superiority of the Thinkpad's keyboard, no doubt about it and overall probably the best no nonsense laptop in the industry. However... (and I know this is subjective, each to their own) it doesn't look as aesthetically pleasing and it doesn't run MacOS (without some serious hacking at least) ;)

    +Serge Meeuwsen I'd add that thinness doesn't matter, except for marketing. All that matters is weight. The Macbook weighs 20% more than a thinkpad carbon, which has a larger screen, desktop-grade keyboard, ports and removable storage.

    It's not the race to ultra-thin so much that has to end but rather the compromised results. Clearly the latest gen has too many compromises and they've really only focused on the objective of making it thinner. IF they are able to make a Pro laptop this thin without any of the mentioned compromises, why not? It seems to me that they put this generation of Pro MacBook's out on the market without properly considering other factors such as usage comfort and longer term durability and in the process they failed to adhere to their "Delight the Customer" core tenet...

    Plenty of thin Windows laptops that have decent keyboards with travel. From Lenovo to Dell to Huawei. Some even thinner than the MacBook but with decent reliable keyboards and ports. Don't give Apple a pass. They stuff less hardware and have soldered storage and a smaller screen in a chassis larger than a Matebook X Pro.

    Thicker. Apple really needs to do something about these stupid product decisions. In fact, it feels like no one is making great decisions at Apple at the moment (lack of F/esc keys, thin laptops, ugly iPhone battery cases, MagSafe, Trashcan Macbook still being sold at too high pricepoint, etc, etc, etc.)

    Make them thicker. The soldered on components are causing a lot of issues. I replaced my battery on my 2010 MacBook Pro 3 times in the course of it's life. Given how expensive these Macs are I need them to last for awhile. Unless Apple just wants to drop the price and have us replace them every so often... I genuinely believe Apple needs to rethink their objectives. They're getting stagnate. Thinner isn't what this decade needs. Efficiency is what this decade needs. It needs to pinch the wallet a lot less. It needs to be fast. It needs to save energy. I think of Chromebooks and Amazon Echo Dots as an example of devices that grasp this concept.

    I would happily go significantly thicker to get back everything you just mentioned as well as getting the ports back. For a "PRO" device, the objective is a device that outperforms the competition, not a device that is smaller than the competition. If we wanted smaller, we'd go with a macbook or a macbook Air. And everyone I know who has one would much prefer having buttons at the top as apposed to the touch bar.

  58. Andrew Somerville

    100% agree. I've been putting off upgrading from my 2014 model and will probably continue to put it off until they create a better keyboard. Work supplied me with a 2018 with the new keyboard and I find it very difficult to type on without hitting multiple keys at once. Keycaps are too large with not enough space between and too little travel.

    Super-Thin Laptop Pros: 1. Elegant look - I mean, yeah they look pretty, but don't forget what a laptop is supposed to do! Super-Thin Laptop Cons: 1. Doesn't actually make it more portable - At this rate, unless you want to make the screen smaller (please don't), the MacBook cannot get any more portable than it already is. 2. makes it more fragile - It feels as if I could break the screen off the keyboard if I'm not careful, and knowing about those ribbon cables the newer MacBooks use for the displays, I imagine I actually could rip the screen off by accident. 3. Horrible thermals - The Core i9 MacBook of 2018 throttled so badly it was somehow worse performance than the i7 in my custom rig. 4. No upgradeable RAM - OK, fair enough, I just need to buy the most expensive model beforehand and it'll be fine. 5. No upgradeable SSD - This is a problem, I don't like having to replace my computers all that often, and when you store lots of videos, photos, songs, and everything on a computer, you begin to eat up that storage fast, even the highest end SSD option for a MacBook cannot fix this. 6. No replaceable battery - Which sucks because as I stated before, I don't like having to fully replace a system when there's only one thing wrong with it. 7. No HDMI Port - I mean, USB C is good, but I would like to maybe not need an adapter to use a non-Mac monitor. 8. No full-size USB - Another serious issue as again, I don't want to use adapters to use normal USB devices. 9. No full size keyboard - Also annoying, there's an actual learning curve to use a MacBook keyboard as some keys are a little differently positioned to save space. 10. fragile keyboard - Almost no good tactile feedback, and are without a doubt, the most fragile keys I've ever used. 11. Overpriced - All this money, just to make the laptop perhaps maybe 1 millimeter thinner at the cost of practicality.

    There is no compromise in this design. The exact reason for making the device thinner is so that it can become more susceptible to failure. It's not the compromise. It's killing two birds with one stone: sell it easier because its thin, and than sell another one because its broken.

    I've had a MacBook Pro 15" 2015 for about two years now and I had absolutely no issues with it. At least no hardware issues. Software bugs were something else, but those were usually fixed with a software update. Still, what I wanted to point out is that I NEVER felt the need for a thinner machine. I feel like this generation of MacBooks was already really thin to begin with, and I totally agree that making them thinner wasn't worth the sacrifice in performance and durability. So...yeah. I wouldn't mind the newer MacBook Pros of 2019 to be just a little bit thicker if that also means solving the issues the previous models had. But Apple will probably never do that. Interesting that they actually did that with the iPhones though. iPhone X is a bit thicker than the 8. And I don't think that stopped anyone from buying it. So...maybe they change their mind? It's very unlikely, considering this is Apple we're talking about. And considering they haven't done anything like that in the past 3 years. They're usually stubborn AF. And usually not for a good cause. But...who knows, right? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
