thanks but im not running this, they say it's a very intensive test, so what if the problem gets worse after it, sorry

The last option is to look up the model and see whether someone else in the WWW had the same problems. Most of the time, you're never the chosen one Very Happy

yea i shall... also haven't opened it up yet to clean will get around to that too...
just connected it to the tv via hdmi, problem doesn't occur when i do that... surely that rules out the graphics card then right? or what does it mean?

It's the laptop screen. Hardware issue. 5 years is pretty much end of life for a laptop.

Want to replace my 2018 MacBook Pro with 2019 one that has a touchbar.

Apparently touchbar is useless but the sheer aesthetic of it and customisable options is what drives me towards it.

I also may wait for the 2021 16 inch one but apparently they have removed the bar.

It seems it will only be more powerful and thats it.

Anyone advise me if the wait and the extra money for a 2021 is worth it compared to the 19?

Apparenty, your need isn't urgent. Then wait and get the newest one. All MacBooks are fast these days, the new ones have longer software support which means a lot for longevity and resell value.
