    Anyone tempted by the 2020 MacBook Pro?

    I can say that it is very inviting. My current late 2016 MacBook Pro battery has degraded enough to hold 2-3 hours of charge.
    My only annoyance is that they only have two Thunderbolt ports on the left side, and none on the right. I really wished they had ports on both sides.

    It's 500$ less expensive than the 2019 MacBook Pro I was eyeing, and that's with the Education rebate.

    Not in the slightest, and I am beyond furious at Apple’s prices & direction. I have bought my last new Mac after 36 years. Crooks & idiots!

    My 2017 MacBook Pro is still going strong, but I spend more time on my 2020 iPad Pro and therefore, I’m not tempted in any way to get a new MacBook Pro.

    I need to know more about compatibility and especially running Windows 10 VMs.

    I saw this but want to know about VMware specifically.

    It is tempting but and I need to a see if I still have my management reimbursement program at work. Otherwise my 2 Macbook Pros are still just fine for what I do.

    Very tempted, yes. Have been waiting for these new MacBooks since my old one died a few months ago. Think I will wait for some hands-on reviews and GeekBench figures before deciding.

    My wife is drooling over the new Mac Air. She retires early 2021 so this will be her retirement present.

    EXTREMELY tempted. I'm still rolling with my mid-2009 MacBook Pro! I'm due for an upgrade soon!

    I might be tempted but I have other things that I want before I would consider a Mac. Mainly I am needing a new iPhone and a new Apple Watch and actually I think if I were going to do anything else I would get an iPad Air with a keyboard. That would be sufficient for me.

    What do you mean by high end? You can add as many bells and whistles as you want when ordering. Are you meaning waiting for the M1 Chip to be added to the 16" MacBook Pros?

    On another forum, a member called me a 'Tech Chaser'. Honestly, I do not need a MBA or MBP with M1.
    But, it would be nice
