For me, the flicker is very debilitating making the laptop unusable. I have owned laptops for 30 years, and none of them bricked less than 2 years from purchase. I really like the 4k screen, so I just hope Intel can get their act together, become honest with their customers, and at least tell us how to permanently fix this issue.
You were working on your Mac and accidentally deleted certain data? Maybe you intentionally placed some files in the Recycle Bin and then realized you might still need them? Such situations are quite common because when working with information, you cannot exclude the human factor. We all make mistakes but there’s always a solution.
