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.

This machine never moved from a single place in a humidity and temperature controlled office. Fewer than 200 hours of operating time. 🤷‍♂️

@cancel "yeah they may be abusive but you have to admit it's pretty easy to get a new one when it breaks"

@cancel Dang. I still use a 2012 air(not exclusively). It seems like the key is to stop upgrading the OS at some point. 2019 is too recent for failure though.

@anandra I have a 2013 pro still on 10.12 and it works fine.
