Why Apple’s Best MacBook Pro is Too Powerful for Its Own Good

After being long overdue for an update to new CPUs, last week Apple announced refreshed 2018 MacBook Pros with 8th-gen Coffee Lake chips from Intel, including the company’s top-of-the-line consumer laptop processor, the six-core 2.9GHz Core i9-8950HK CPU. And in theory, this option seemed like a great addition to the MBP lineup by giving high-level video editors and graphics artists a little extra performance without any added bulk. Read More >>

This Laptop is the MacBook Pro People Wish Apple Would Make

So there I am, six thousand miles away from home in a foreign country (whose language I don’t speak) covering a trade show by myself, and I realise the power brick on my XPS 13 is busted. This is a disaster. My laptop is my lifeblood. I need it to write stories, edit photos, and collaborate with the team back home. Without it, I’m truly screwed.
