So, I'm buying a new MacBook. Question is, which one?

    I bought the 2016 space gray macbook pro when it first came out. First one I got had a few malfunctioning keys and I was able to get it exchanged. Now the replacement I got is starting to make popping/cracking noises constantly. I know others that have had hardware issues too. I hope they've gotten better, but I think the build quality is poor, considering I've owned many generations of macs with 0 problems. Just thought I'd share this experience.

    Power-wise they run great, the design is very sharp, and the p3 display is really awesome. I would just recommend getting applecare+ if you are considering getting one.

      Sorry to hear that, buddy. I can relate with that; my current MacBook heat up for no reason, and, even tho when it's cold, the fans starts to enter airplane mode.

      Thanks for your sharing your feedback / experience; Applecare+ is something I've never thought about, and I might consider from now on.
