    Well this stinks. I upgraded my computer after many years just over a month ago and now this. At the time, I thought, "32GB of RAM is the most I can get?" Ahem. And running Premiere with Media Encoder is eating up every bit of it. What I wouldn't give to be able to ask Apple for a swap for the 16" with 64GB of RAM and 4 or 8TB of storage! This is one time I'm not thrilled with Apple. GRRRR...

    Why not sell it and get the new one?

    Yes, there is some loss of money, but a new MacBook Pro in good condition should hold its value pretty well.

    If it really was just over a month ago, I would go to an Apple Store (if you have access to one) and talk to them. Tell them you feel a bit cheated and that you want to spend some money on a loaded new 16". I wouldn't be surprised if they took it back, minus a restocking fee, if it's in 'like new' condition.

    I've had products that were just out of warranty that were still fixed for free because Apple has an unofficial grace period of another month that they can apply on a case by case basis. It's obviously pretty sour if something happens two days after the warranty ended.

    Talk to them. Make your case.

    Have to say Apple was great about it. I simply called and told them of having purchased the computer a little over a month ago. The kicker is the 16" exactly configured as my 15" costs $250.00 LESS with 64GB of RAM than mine with its 32GB of RAM. They didn't have to do it, but were very accommodating and I really do appreciate it. That's great customer service. Much like RED.

    Nice,

    The new MacBook Pro isn’t the redesign which I was hoping, however all their Mac hardware design is the brightest this year. They are listening to their professional customers and giving them what they want.

    What were you hoping for?

    Looks like the major redesign is going to be next year. Micro LED HDR screen is coming. They are slowly getting away from Jony's "form before function" nonsense. That said I've waited as long as I could with my 2012 15" and just pulled the trigger for a maxed out 16".
