For most people this machine is overkill. For me, it's very over the top... yet I strangely still want it. I could get by with a Chromebook. I think that's the majority of Apple users these days.

Should I get this over the base model with an i7 for like $2100? Is it worth the i9 and extra storage? I can always use an external drive... Thanks!

It depends on what you are using the machine for. The 1TB storage makes it worth it since files are only going to get bigger and it is non-upgradable. External drives just are not as fast or reliable.

LOL at that price! Ludicrous.
OK, versus what? Care to show the rest of the class another type of laptop with an 8-core i9 (16 threads) and a 1TB PCIe SSD, and a screen that high-res and high quality, that also has a real dedicated GPU?

These things are beasts. Definitely overkill for the typical laptop user, but if you need the power it has there's probably not a better laptop out there for the price.

He's suggesting that you should get at least 32 GB of RAM in general because RAM is not upgradable at a later time.
I realize RAM is not upgradeable in MacBooks anymore, but isn't 32GB overkill?

I've been monitoring prices on this Apple Macbook Pro series. Recently, I've been eyeing the 16", 512 GB SSD drive with 16 GB RAM. It's an i7, 9th gen. Amazon had it for roughly $2150 and it was selling at BB for $2,399. Still waiting for it to come down, pricewise.

Probably can achieve high speeds with NVMe and thunderbolt 3 but I personally wouldn't store any critical data on an external drive on a laptop. It is too easy to pull it out without unmounting it.

I believe what the OP may be referring to regarding 32GB vs 16GB RAM is that each core needs sufficient RAM to run at full potential. Since i9 has 8 cores you effectively "limit" each core to 2GB at most, thus each core can potentially "run out" of memory and throttle down. I've never benchmark this so can't verify, you may need to do more research if that is a concern.

Of course a lot depends on your workflow, applications, etc...also keep in mind i9 configuration has the slightly faster 5500M discrete graphics, in case that is needed for your particular workflow. I think could be helpful for video intensive tasks vs. 5300M.


I have not received my new i9 yet but perhaps someone can share real world experience if they have i9 16GB config. Actually i would love to hear about experience related to thermal , fan noise, battery of the MBP 16 i9 16GB.

Ram and processing power might be related but not really as you put it. Depends on the work. I would say 16gb is plenty for most people and having a higher processing power will not be slowed by 16gb. Separate functions.

RAM is soldered on these 16" MacBook Pros and can't be upgraded even by Apple.
Which is what gives me pause about all these 16 GB deals. 16 GB is plenty now, but in 4-5 years could be meh, especially for content creation/design. Wife is looking to replace her 2017 MBP (graphic designer) and really wants the new 16" model with better everything, especially keyboard. But telling her to hold out for a deal on a 32 GB model with at least a 1 TB storage.

It's an i9, it's basically hobbled by the ram for any kind of production work.
THe i9 is more hobbled by thermals than RAM...
