2018 MacBook Pro: the Apple T2 Chip Can Erratically Kernel Panic the System

Thanks to B&H Photo for making this top-line Apple MacBook Pro available for testing. As this was written B&H Photo was offering it at a $100 discount( $100 e-gift card).

I’ve not seen a kernel panic yet, but twitter user Bryan Jones looks to be unhappy about a problem that others have also reported.

The new MacBook Pros with T2 chips do indeed kernel panic randomly, as shown in the attached image. I'd hold off buying if you can; Apple has work to do. /cc @pschiller @tim_cook @Apple @AppleSupport

Why does it seem like Apple rushed a beta-quality product out the door? Because that’s what Apple did!

Shortly after release the firmware had to be updated to deal with a performance-throttling bug. The kernel panics are another issue. Is the 2018 MacBook Pro ready for prime time for a pro user depending on it to not go haywire?
