Sad Mac

My five-year-old MacBook Pro has started to play up again. I had Apple replace the battery late last year. Now when I turn it on it works for a couple of minutes before the screen goes black and the touchpad stops giving feedback, despite the battery being being charged. Plugging in brings it back after a minute or so. This is the problem that made me schedule a battery replacement in the first place.

For five years I’ve had a MacBook Pro at home and a couple of different well-specced Lenovo ThinkPads for work (X280, T14s). I have to say that I much prefer working on the ThinkPads. Windows in its current guise is excellent and rarely causes me any issues. There’s a lot to love about Apple products and the integration between devices, but I have never fallen in love with my Mac.
