    I hope Apple puts out a THICCBook Pro this year. The race for ultra-thin needs to end

      The Touch Bar is a Gimmick it is too small and placed where they are not easy to see!

      The keyboards suck!

      No real cooling!

      ​@sarath kumarthey can easily make it thicker again, that's what Apple did with the iPhones in the past, iPhone 6/7 were thinner than the current gen of iPhones (X and Xs)

    The old macbook is better than the paper thin 2019 new macbooks. Thick. Durable, looking expensive, no issues, easy to fix and change ssd/battery etc. very thin laptop looks like it will break after 1 to 2 yrs. my macbook pro is living a good life from 2011. Still works like a dragon.

      Apple should allow OWC to sell and support the expansion or this add-on creating a more modular 2016/2018 MBP. I'd like to see where they are with ARM. I've been a Mac user since 1984 and to expand my knowledge last year I build my 1st Windows Box never being a windows user it was easy and I learned a lot about hardware "$768 4 8core 32gb ddr4-3200 8gb GPU beast". I got Mac OS installer to boot up on my AMD CPU but couldn't get it to start up. So I've been using windows just to get by with Lightroom & Photoshop my macs were 10+years old and breaking down. I want to get a new mac but with ARM-based MBP on the Horizon, I want to wait for my potential $3500+ config It is a lot for me to spend. HEY APPLE I can't afford a keyboard meltdown and no upgradability...

        Apple just has so much good hardware, if only they fixed the thinness and keyboard

                you're the man Dave. love how you get your points across concisely. there are too many youtube channels where over 90% of the video is filler.

                      They could probably fix a lot of the issues without making them too much thicker, it'd just cost too much money when they could just repair the few (too many) that break until the next body styling is rolled out. They are so close so these issues are such a bummer.

                        They absolutely _do_ need to make their devices as thick as in the thumbnail.

                            I really don't understand why people mad behind thin laptops so much especially when its giving u all these problems and that also expensive apple laptops. Trust me thicker chassis may compromise weight and movement but come on guys its not too heavy stuff man, they have much better thermal management and a lot of headroom is there to upgrade stuffs and are also very durable. Go for longevity, upgradability and durabilty. And by the way thicker laptops look way cooler than thin ones at least for me.

                                    The only reason to make them thinker is better battery life, it’s the biggest victim of thin phones and laptops. All other issue will be solved with advances in technology, but those advances often are also a bigger drain on the battery.

                                      i think they should make it thin cause we are the ones that got to carry it around n it be making our backs hurt lol

                                        If they go to Arm processors then cooling won’t be a problem. Hopefully they can design a new motherboard with a smaller form factor and give more space for a better keyboard design. Allows them to keep that super thin look. They probably shouldn’t have gone so thin when they had to make so many compromises with the current configuration. My 13” 2014 MacBook Pro will be my last MacBook until they come up with a new design without all the compromises.

                                          Lets not forget the ultra thin iMac. This is evidence of design run amok. A desktop does not have to be super thin. It serves no purpose other than Ive’s need to prove he is needed. My 2017 i9 5k iMac’s fans are on 30% of the time. iMac owner since January 1985 who uses them for work, not art pieces.

                                            Make it smaller from a footprint perspective, not a thickness perspective. And use better cooling techniques! Vapor cooling? Different material?

                                              Make Apple Thick Again! But seriously...The Pro should be thicker, the the Air super-thin and the MacBook somewhere in-between.

                                                You are spot on with identifying the issues with the recent Macbooks. I saw these issues developing and opted for a 2015 MBP in 2018. Thin enough, with all the relevant ports, full travel keyboard, no dongles, etc.

                                                  I agree, it's stupid that Apple needs to focus on functionality and reliability again instead of making things thinner and thinner as no one cares. Make the Macbook Pro thicker again, get rid of the silly touch bar that no one uses or wants, and make the Macbook Air the thin laptop.

                                                    This is not the ultra-thin race, if it was the case, you won't choose aluminium body. This is a stupid marketing race. When you can't innovate, you give the customer the illusion you are perfecting the product while Apple has the art of making products worse.

                                                        You forgot to mention a reduction in port options as another side effect of chasing thin aesthetics.

                                                            I have an "early 2015" 13" MBP. It has the magsafe power connector, and 2 USB ports, and HDMI port, an SD card port, a HEADPHONE JACK(!), and it still runs perfectly. I would not trade it for a newer model. Oh, and the old style keyboard (non "butterfly") works beautifully. Apple has been moving backwards.

If I need efficient power, I'll prefer Dell laptop, at the moment ... but I'm waiting for a future good macbook pro, because OSX is the most stable operative system I ever used. I hope your suggestions will be listen to...

It's a little bit fatter, but I could remove the super drive slot and changed for a Caddy with an extra SSD, upgraded the memory up to 16gb and Make the dual boot, one in each SSD, Windows and MAC oS. Just need to be a Macbook pro with a Super Drive, Retina display and at least a I5 processor, if you do these upgrades you'll have the best macbook pro so far...

I love the keyboard, the ports on the side and the feel. It’s great because it’s a powerful laptop which is easy to carry around too.

                                                                                              As a developer, I've see so many colleagues buy these pieces of trash simply because they are POSIX out of the box. I am so glad that Microsoft has decided to make the WSL a priority in the recent windows 10 updates. Having the new Windows Terminal and WSL2 has made it easier for me to get some of these colleagues to abandon Apple machines.

But the move has been made to make smaller chassis and now apple is going to have to make improvements to the hardware to address these issues.
