Just an appreciation of my 2011 MacBook Pro with a 1TB SSD and 16gb of ram. Have had it since 2011 and still running fast and dependable. : mac
My 2011 MBP suffered from that basically frequent graphics card fault (I feel it was one thing to do with the early variations of lead-free solder, iirc). But after three failed repairs, Apple finally changed with an equal mannequin (i.e. high spec) from the 2013 vary, which is what I am typing this on now.
Hoping to get a decade out of this machine, which might simply beat the longevity of the titanium G4 Powerbook that I had earlier than my dud 2011 mannequin. (Maybe “longevity” is the mistaken phrase, as that titanium one still boots – it’s simply that the remaining of the world has moved on a lot.)
