    Now Sam can finally fulfill his goal of rendering Toy Story 5 on one machine. :cool:

    Memory leak aside I’m glad to see these are largely living up to the expectations. Can’t wait for either rev2 next year or perhaps an updated Mini Max.

    An extremely positive review of the new MBPs. Except for gaming. To answer Ron's previous question about "are these now gaming machines?" the Verge's review addresses this at 12:27 mark. They don't do poorly, so you can game, but you can get better gaming performance from gaming focused non-Mac...

    https://www.macrumors.com/2021/10/29/monterey-usb-hub-issues-reported/ Not sure if that’s related to what you’re seeing Sam but they seem to be laying the blame on the USB implementation in Monterey. Which at least is good news in that it’s not hardware related.

    Oof. On a late lunch break at a mall. Just tried out a 16”. That’s one thick machine.

    I will give my FedEx delivery guy some props. It was shipped Priority Overnight and guaranteed to be "delivered by noon". I think he made me the first stop because it left the local area hub around 8:45am and got to me by 9:30am, which is about how long it takes to drive from that hub to my...

    You guys remind me of me a month ago when I bought a $$$ guitar and the dealer sent it overnight delivery from the east coast. I swear I had the FedEx tracker app on my phone, iPad, laptop and desktop and checked them hourly. Okay. Multiple times an hour. :rolling-smiley:

    Lol I saw that headline about UPS and was thinking “if Ron and Sam’s machines are caught in that, there’s gonna be hell to pay!”

    Gotta love when the reviewer didn't have to pay for it. Kept throwing around figures like $3.5K and $3K in the review. My dude, your 64GB 4TB M1Max is $4899 to the Average, no employee or academic discount, Joe. :laugh:

    https://www.anandtech.com/show/17024/apple-m1-max-performance-review A fairly deep dive which I'm only beginning, but they tend to do a pretty decent job breaking things down.

    I've never watched UrAC before. I like his review style and substance. Subscribed.

    If it's free, and it helps people who only run in light mode, cool. The only reason I mentioned MacOS's native dark mode functionality is personally I only download and install things that I know the OS can't do well natively (like Witch). If I can have the OS do it, I would rather not download...

    Here's my desktop right now. If there was a notch, I'd not notice it.

    Isn't that just Dark Mode? I'm running Dark Mode right now and the menu bar is black (admittedly I run a dark background too so the top of the background image is black). If I had a notch right now (I don't, on an original M1 MBP) I wouldn't be able to see it. Before you buy and pay for that...

    The way I constantly bring my laptop around to various places in both my home and outside to do recording, the additional 1 1/2 lbs adds up very quickly. My mindset has been transformed from "ugh, do I really want to bother lugging this out" to "why wouldn't I bring this portable little thing?"...

    I understand for those doing photog and video stuff the new MBPs are bringing desperately needed horsepower and RAM. For me, I think Apple may have done a little "too good" of a job on the M1. Logic Pro, running with many tracks and effects, runs seamlessly on my M1 13" MBP with 16GB of RAM. As...

    My experience with Apple preorder shipping times is they are usually conservative and it is not uncommon for items to arrive earlier than what was originally estimated. Good luck!

    Holy crow a 140W power brick for the 16". I already felt the 97W was a big'un. This will be Al Bundy Big'un sized!
