Buy a 2020 MacBook Pro Now OR Wait for Apple Silicon?

by birtanpublished on August 4, 2020

Hey guys what's up it's Karl here back with another episode hope everyone staying healthy and safe we've had the new 16 inch macbook pro in the studio for the past almost two weeks now this is the one with the Radeon Pro 5600 M and on Apple's website they don't even

Label it as a new model we only got a GPU refresh but more importantly the huge announcement from WWDC last week Apple is transitioning away from Intel moving over to its own Apple silicone and I want to chat about because I got

This question so so many times social YouTube every single place when is the perfect time to buy a Mac whether that's a macbook air a macbook pro and I'm a core tech even a Mac Pro should you grab an intel-based Apple Computer or should

You wait for Apple silicon and that's the tough question because I get it no one wants to buy out Datatech and we got that definitive answer from Apple we will still be supporting Intel based computers at least for the next couple

Years as we go through that transition Tim Cook himself said we'll still be getting unannounced Intel based Apple computers probably in our next refresh cycle and I personally don't think we'll see an Apple silicon-based math until

Earliest time the end of 2020 probably even early 2021 with everything happening in the world right now there's no way Apple will jump the gun and release something early we saw though on one of their tester kits on a 20 maybe

Even $30,000 Mac Pro it was running the same internals the 812 Z Bionic chip found in an iPad pro and I'd be pretty bummed out if the next Mac Pro came with the same chipset found in a thousand dollar tablet yeah the performance might

Be decent but the value just doesn't seem to be there and don't get me wrong it's got great specs crushes the benchmarks easily the best tablet that you can buy on the market but I still think Apple needs to come out with

Something new something different for Apple silicone whether that's the a 13 X a 13 Z or a completely new naming mechanism for their Mac based silicone that remains to be kind of seen your guest is probably as good as mine so

Leave your future predictions down below and if you win you get your online virtual brownie points for the year so congrats to you in the future so with that in mind isn't a bad time right now to grab an intel-based Mac

Book so for example this 16 inch MacBook Pro that just got a brand new refresh would you be an idiot to buy one right now my honest opinion probably not it's still an awesome computer and it will be for the next four to five years I

Typically refresh my own personal mat books along that five year mark and in the world of tech it's literally impossible to stay on top of the refresh game unless you've just got tools and boodles and money in the pocket new

Laptops new computers new smartphones are coming at every couple months and in my opinion the biggest shame is waiting a year possibly even two because a lot of people like to skip the first gen refresh that's a long time that you're

Waiting without a new piece of tech think what you can do in that amount of time you could start your very own YouTube channel have a hundred thousand subscribers by the time you wait for that new product to commitment and I'll

Use the macbook line as a great example if you have a device with the new updated magic keyboard they've moved away from the butterfly switches I don't think you need an upgrade you can hold off until then maybe anything older than

That you could definitely consider still buying a new MacBook MacBook Air MacBook Pro without having any remorse or any doubt and we'll take my 15 inch MacBook Pro as a prime example you can see icons folders everything is littered on my

Desktop I have no sense of file management this is close to two years old right now but it still handles everything that I throw on my channel at it totally fine the thing that actually gives out the most surprisingly maybe

Not so is the keyboard it has gotten stuck maybe three to four times I've had to take it to the Apple Store that many times just to get it fixed if this whole YouTube thing wasn't my main gig if I wasn't lucky enough to receive computers

From Apple I would definitely be happy and stay on that device of course the new 16 inch MacBook Pro absolute beast and as it should I think this model is spec for around 5,500 6,000 bucks I still wouldn't recommend getting the

Radeon Pro 5600 M even though this video was edited on this device yes it's buttery smooth but do I notice that big of a difference from a normal 16 inch with a 5500 M definitely not obviously the benchmarks kind of show

How powerful this device is but in real world use I honestly don't think it's worth and right now this is the best MacBook that money can buy and say if tomorrow for whatever reason Apple decided to

Stick the a 12 Z Bionic into a new line of MacBooks they probably perform very very closely and I'm sure that will be the same for the next-gen MacBook Pro the only thing that you can't really quantify is of course that time factor

How important or how valuable is time for you can you afford to wait a year possibly a year and a half for that potential new refresh that won't be that much better if you buy a device right now I think you get what I'm trying to

Say this video probably could have been wrapped up in 30 seconds if you've got a device 4 to 5 years old feel no remorse if you've grabbed a new machine in the last year – – yeah it's probably worth waiting for let me know down below

Though if I'm completely off my rocker or are people waiting out for the next Apple silicone MacBooks to launch remember to leave your guesses on what you think the chipsets will be called I am going with I think they're going with

A different letter probably m4 Mac would it be m1 or where they switch to em 15 and 13 and 13 good gun in Call of Duty I'm going with that as my guess and if you're here for the MacBook Pro review obviously the best of ice money can buy

Right now maybe the only thing I have to say is why have I been shying away from silver I kind of love this way more than any of the space great stuff catch you guys in one of my next bids or vlogs face
