Apple can't launch high-end MacBook Pros without issues

Apple's new $4099 laptop has major issues, oh wait - nearly all models are experiencing issues

Apple had quite the unveiling a few weeks ago with its refreshed MacBook Pro family, featuring a high-end $4000+ model that featured AMD's new Polaris-based Radeon Pro 460 graphics.


Then less than 24 hours ago we reported on the issue, with waves of people complaining about their new MacBook Pros experiencing video-related issues. There were issues with the new 15-inch MBP that sports AMD's new Radeon Pro 400 series graphics, with people taking to the MacRumor forums to complain about their problems. But there are a lot of people with 13-inch MacBook Pros that are experiencing issues, and there is no AMD hardware inside of those models - that's all an all-Intel MacBook Pro, with the same issues the model with the Radeon Pro 400 series graphics has.


The issue here is that Apple, a company that prides itself on being courageous for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, and is meant to be the top of the pyramid when it comes to their quality products. So much so, that Apple even has a $300 book on its amazing designs, yet its new $4000+ laptop was shipped with major issues resulting in thousands of people complaining about issues on their new laptops.
