Hi My current Macbook Pro (late 2015) is slow with VW 2019 / VW2020. I have waited for the Macbook Pro 16" to come out. I am in Australia and end of year sales at various electronics stores are selling it at $400 cheaper than the Apple Store for the standard off the shelf models. Upgrading the specs means getting it from Apple and spending a lot more money ($1240 at least). The size of the hard drive is not an issue as I do not keep much on my laptop. I have a souped up 2015 Imac in the office - it will be significantly slower than the new off the shelf 16" mind you according to the Cinebench R20 scores. I will upgrade the Imac sometime soon. I like to have 2 computers - can render on one and work on reports on the other when in the office and I do a lot of my work on the move both for my own clients and for other architects hence I need a laptop. Has anyone had experience with the 16" performance with the i9 8 core, 16gb, 2.3 ghz 4gb, 5500m graphic chip for 3d VW for and rendering? I can upgrade the 16gb memory later but NOT the graphics card and it's memory. If the off the shelf model is fine with rendering in VW etc I will take the saving and put that money and the money I would spend on upgrading memory etc towards a new desktop. Thanks PS I am in a Mac environment and all of the architects I work for use Apple so a PC is not an option.
