#MacBookPro #Apple – MacBook Pro 2016 Problems, Issues That We Know So Far : It has only been a week since day-one buyers took possession of their new MacBook Pro 2016 laptops. So far, many have been experiencing some problems and issues that are somewhat quite surprising especially for MacBook Pros.

One user reported that his new MacBook Pro 2016 did not start or boot when he first opened it. Immediately after opening the package, he proceeded in turning on his newly bought laptop.

However, instead of the welcome screen, the laptop crashed, and it did multiple times. What followed next is a series of phone calls made to the Apple Customer Service.

One Customer Service agent suggested resetting the PRAM/NVRAM of the laptop but to no avail. Another one asked for the OS to be re-installed, also without any luck at all. Until finally, it was decided that the unit must be sent back to Apple for replacement.

More and more users are reporting that their MacBook Pro 2016, especially the 15-inch version, are having graphics card issues. From the videos posted by various users online, the laptop display begins to show glitches the moment it switches display controllers.

Normally during light loads, the MacBook Pro uses the in-built Intel graphics processor to save up on battery. During heavy loads, like video editing, the laptop switches to the discrete graphics card to boost graphics performance. This is where the problem occurs.
