The all new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models feature some of the best specs available in the market including the Intel’s 8th-gen six-core processors, up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 4TB of fast SSD storage. Apple’s new laptops are slimmer, and pack the same unibody aluminium construction as seen on previous Macbooks. The new Macbook Pro aims to help deliver more power to professional users. Let’s take a closer look:

13 inch Macbook Pro: Key Specs

  • Quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors
  • Storage Upto 2TB(SSD)
  • True Tone display, Touch ID and Touch Bar.
  • Intel iGPU.

15’inch Macbook Pro: Key Specs

  • Hexa-core Intel Core i7 and Core i9 processors.
  • RAM upto 32GB
  • Upto 4TB of storage (SSD)
  • AMD Radeon Rx560 discrete GPU with 4GB of graphics memory.
  • True Tone display, Touch ID and Touch Bar.
  • Thunderbolt 3

More Power, for more money

With the new Macbook, developers won’t have a hard time compiling their code faster. Both the intel CPUs are no slouch,
4K video encoding or playing a game set to maximum visual settings shouldn’t be a problem. The 15 inch model comes with the Intel i9 chip, enabling up to 4.8GHz turbo boost speeds.
All this raw power comes with a hefty price tag though, starting at INR 149900 and INR 199900 respectively for the 13 inch and 15 inch versions. The new Macbooks are not for everyone.

Display

The Retina class display is a quality panel with bright, vivid and detailed colours. With 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide colour gamut, Apple claims the Retina display on MacBook Pro is the best display they ever made.

Other Features

  • Your security concerns are taken care of by the next generation Apple T2 chip who’s predecessor made its first appearance in the first generation touchbar Macbooks. This chip helps encrypting your storage and boot. With the T2 chip you can control and manage your SSD storage, play with audio settings and a lot more.
  • Siri your personal voice assistant is also present enabling you to open apps, Play music or answer your questions.
  • The Touch bar is a nifty little feature, helping you browse content easily, and adding context-specific options depending on the app you use.
  • The third-generation of the butterfly keyboard by Apple offers precise feel and decent key travel. Hopefully they’ve gotten fixed the poor quality control from the previous generations.

Verdict

While the new Macbooks come with vastly improved performance, they are also highly overpriced. Comparable Windows laptops, with nearly the same performance, are far more inexpensive. If you’re a fan of Apple’s unmatched build quality or the MacOS experience though, you’ll want to consider these strongly over the previous generations.
