    I share the same frustrations. I've been using a 2017 macbook pro (fully specced) and I'm not noticing a lot of improvements from my previous workstation (2013 macbook pro full)..

    Although it's my main workstation for Product Design (Sketch / Figma), I'm using it for small video / photo editing for Social media and it can barerly handle 4k with a dgpu. It can barerly handle a 4k video output to an external monitor without fans starting to launch the laptop into orbit.

    Thanks to the eGPUs you can fix some performance issues, but Apple is not collaborating with NVIDIA to release drivers for Mojave, trying to block you in their AMD ecosystem.

    Having that said, and being a looooong apple fan boy, I can say I really dislike how Tim Cook is running the company and having ONLY a business focus. Apple used to be synonym to premium, but now it's just overpriced for what you get.

    I hate windows but have to go on the same route.
