You've just got your hands on a brand new MacBook Pro 13". Your heart starts to race as you power up the machine and get ready to open up your favourite creative software. Then completely unexpectedly your MacBook Pro shuts down. This is exactly what has been happening with the 2019 13" MacBook Pro with two Thunderbolt ports.

You switch the machine back on and notice that you still have plenty of juice left in the battery before it randomly shuts down again. This is incredibly frustrating and irritating, but don't worry you are not alone. Vigy_K reported on the Apple forum that it happened on their first 13" laptop and their replacement machine. While your machine is out of action you could get your hands on a mac decal to make it look prettier than ever. That might make you feel better (sorry if it doesn't).
