Hi Dane.

If you don't mind, I'll drop you a wee message off list tomorrow if that's fine. I'll also try and find out as much as I can via Youtube in the meantime.

Thank you.

Andy.

I’ll keep it brief then.
I bought the 2019 model of MacBook Pro as it was cheaper than the 2020
model, only real difference was in the fact that the 2020 model has the
Magic keyboard whereas the 2019 model doesn’t, you can write to me off-list
to discuss the pros and cons of this but the lack of a Magic Keyboard doesn’t
bother me at all.
The machine I have is a 16-inch with an intel I9 Optocore processor with
16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
The MacBook Pro has 4 USB-C/Thunterbolt 3 ports so you may wish to get a
Thunderbolt Dock in your package.
Be sure you decide on your preferences for RAM and storage as this cannot be
upgraded later.
You can build and configure your virtual MacBook Pro online at the Apple
Store, http://www.store.apple.com <http://www.store.apple.com/> or do this
through the IOS Apple Store App.

Hi Dain.

I'm actually thinking of getting a new Macbook Pro..

Believe it or not but I'm currently saving £520 a month ever since I gave
up smoking. Very bad and expensive habit here in Scotland.

So please provide me with as many details as possible about your new
computer with size, ports size, model number and price and a podcast or 2
from Apple would not do any harm also.

Thanks for this Andy.

Hi.
I managed to purchase one of these brilliant machines though I will warn
people before they start thinking about a 16-Inch MacBook Pro, you’ll need
a lot of money in your piggy bank so it will take you a while to reach
your goal but patience is indeed a virtu <smile>
I won’t go on about every thing this machine has to offer but I should
make mention of the excellent quality of the machines internal speaker
system which is without a doubt the best I’ve ever heard on a Notebook
computer.
The speakers are either side of the keyboard, both facing up and with
ports facing down so sound comes from 2 sides of the machine, from the top
and the bottom.
If you are going to use one of these machines then I would seriously
consider getting some sort of Thunderbolt dock to make life that little
bit easier when connecting devices rather than carrying around a swag of
USB-C to whatever adapters you may require.
I use a Caldigit TB3 Plus dock here which - along with a great collection
of USB-A/C, and HDMI ports has a spattering of audio ports including 3.5MM
audio in/out sockets along with a digital audio optical output which is
damn useful.
