I have owned and used many Apple products since 1999 (a relative newcomer, I admit, compared to many). It has always been for me a love/hate relationship. But lately, there’s been a lot more on the hate side than the love side. This 16” MBP does nothing to change that perception. I currently am using two 15” MBPs, a company-supplied 2018 i7 Touch Bar model, and a personally owned 2015 i7 Retina. The former has been rather a disappointment all the way around, while the latter is likely the last MBP I will ever buy, unless Apple changes course. I cannot, and will not, support the concept that devices with a finite number of write cycles should ever be soldered to a motherboard, let alone the lack of upgradeability.
My 2015 recently received a 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD upgrade, and actually has better R/W performance than the 2018. Cost around $200. I don’t even want to know what a comparable upgrade would cost for the 2018.
Useful lifespan used to be an Apple selling point. Not anymore, it seems.
Just reinserting the feet is only a temporary fix. The feet were originally attached to the bottom plate with adhesive. The adhesive dries up and allows the feet to detach.
To reattach the feet, I use Loctite Stick'n Seal Ultra adhesive.
Follow the guide to remove the bottom plate, then peel off the residual adhesive around the foot holes, and clean the area using a cotton swab and alcohol. Clean the feet also.
Apply adhesive to both surfaces using a cotton swab. Be careful to avoid getting adhesive where it doesn't belong. Just a thin coat on both surfaces is all that is needed. Then reinsert the feet, and use a fresh dry cotton swab to gently press them against the bottom plate. Set the plate aside on a raised surface, letting the area with the feet hang over the edge. The glue is dry enough to reassemble after about 1/2 hour, but full cure takes 24 hours.
