  • Unethical review

  • I own a 4k x1 and it looks way better than the macbook. I even took it to the apple store to compare it side by side. Plus you're not even mentioning that you can actually upgrade the x1 in terms of of RAM and storage the new macs are totally locked in that's a huge deal killer in my work.

  • 5:43, what is with that terrible graph where 2,788 is a bigger bar than 5,639?

  • With a name like Apple Insider it's no wonder it was a poor and biased review. The Lenovo X1 Extreme (Gen 2) performed better than the MBP in the Video Encode Test and he had the cheek to fabricate the outcome (check at 7m 28secs). The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme Gen 2 is a great laptop ( I just bought one after decided whether to upgrade my existing MBP). Options you get and the specs are much better to me in the X1 Gen2 than the MBP for less money as well. Other cool things about the X1 is that the keyboard is spill proof. Bias reviews have no place on the public spectrum buddy, shape up.

  • ridiculous you didnt mention thinkpad costs 1/3 of the Mac and consequent repairs cost much less also.

  • Do you recommend getting the X1 Xtreme Gen 2 now or wait for a revision ?
    Thank you

  • 100 Thinkpad fanboys disliked this video. Haha. The MacBook Pro 16" is easily the best choice and it's been getting rave reviews. I don't see many reviews about the Thinkpad X1E 2, perhaps because nobody cares.

  • Choose Apple if: you like MacOS, Trackpad, Screen, Battery Life, aesthetic build, Speaker.
    Choose Lenovo: if: You like Window, Customization, Keyboard and Nipple.

    I would choose MBP and install Window. 😀

  • MBP is not suitable for Pro.
    I use 512GB MBP. Lack of storage space always make me annoyed.
    Recently many applications for developer such as Xcode, Android Studio, Visual Studio, Dockers, Parallels requires much space of storage.
    As storage price decrease, the requirement of storage will be increasing. We cannot fix the size of storage at the time of purchase.

  • I prefer X1 extreme.

    👍Support Nvidia (CUDA environment)
    👍Great Keyboard
    👍Extendable and Customizable

    👎Lack of vertical resolution on monitor

  • You contradicted yourself here (7:25). The credit goes to Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Gen 2.

  • You have no idea which one you are talking about

    Steven Yue April 24, 2020 3:38 am Reply
  • MacBook: No Nvidia support, which I need for CUDA development.
    No stylus/touchscreen support (you get a lousy touchbar), which I need for teaching.
    No 32-bit app support, which I need for mathtype/LaTeX equation editing.
    The Lenovo does all of the above. But hey, my macbook 'pro' has memojis.

  • If you need more power the 16-inch Macbook Pro can be configured with an 8-core Intel Core i9 CPU, 64 GB of RAM, 8 GB of VRAM, and 8 TB of ultra fast storage.

  • You can definitely get higher resolution on the x1 extreme, up to 4k oled touch, just that you have to pay more

  • Wait for Lenovo X1 Extreme series with a 100W battery, and at least 2k IPS display. They need to provide that option for Extreme serie.

  • i am confused. MBP 16 with QUAD core ? 1:00
    Sell me 1 at half the price!!

  • You forgot to mention the part where data recovery is almost impossible on the MBP if your MLB goes bad without sending it to DriveSavers, also, the fact storage is soldered in as well as memory, the T2 chip makes post warranty repairs unbelievably expensive, on top of having a glued in battery and display assembly which is fused together.

    Lenovo has none of those. It has two removable SODIMM and M.2 slots, available service manuals, warranties that can be extended to 5 years including onsite service. Apple only allows 3 years, and that doesn't include international entitlement nor data retention, and it is mandatory depot service for all except companies with contract service. The battery is removable using a Phillips screwdriver…

    This video is pretty amateur and doesn't look into the in-depth reasons as to which one is better for what. Also your graph doesn't match the video.

  • So many salty Thinkpad fanboys. haha. The 16" MBP is overall the best laptop and the Thinkpad fanboys can't stand it. Thinkpads are office machines trying to become mainstream. The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme 2 has terrible thermals, loud fans, terrible backlight bleed and short battery life. Lenovo's customer service is also very poor.

  • Put some spec on the screen which helps the viewers a lot

  • A bit of an unfair comparison. You could of pick the 16inch 8 core i9 32gb 1tb ssd mac.

  • How are you going to compare the Mac's display to the lenovo base model's display when there is a 4k OLED option

  • Guys Listen closely at 7:21
    and watch the table/chart closely.
    I am confused.

  • Poor review. You didn't bother to spec the Lenovo appropriately. There are gorgeous options including 4k OLED.

  • It really only gets down to one thing, for me. Do I want OS X or Windows?

    You can't put OS X on Lenovo. You can put anything on a Mac that you can on a Lenovo.
