I have a MacBook Pro 16" (2019) that I was given as a gift. I use it once every two weeks to test software in a newer version of macOS than my old beater MacBook (which I use a few times a week.)

It just bricked itself applying a security update. You have to be kidding me.

@cancel Apple makes good hardware, but their software is constantly a trash fire.

You can't even load their developer site on a mobile device. Like it just crashes.

@mibzman Pretty sure their hardware blows ass, too. I mean, this thing just killed itself. It's in perfect condition. I have it in a humidity controlled environment in a covered container over 99% of the time. The battery never goes below 40%.


@cancel dang, that's really bad. I wonder if it's a recent development, I've got a 10 year old MacBook that still works well

@mibzman I have a 10 year old and a 7 year. They both work fine. Though the 10 year old has held up better than the 7 year old, despite being treated a lot more roughly (lots of live shows.)
