Design

As mentioned before the Design of the MacBook Pro hasn’t changed.It still has the same Silver or Space Grey finish with the sleek premium metal shell and the same Usb C ports as the 2018 Model.

There Are no Design changes but the option of getting the MacBook Pro without the TouchBar is no longer Available.The MacBook Pro’s Design hasn’t changed but it is yet got a Great Build Quality and a very Premium Feel.

Touch Bar And Touch ID

The Touch Bar and Touch ID have become standard in all 2019 MacBook Pro’s.The Touch Bar is an Interactive Strip which can Display Dynamic Virtual Keys and can help/Simplify Commands and Show you additional information.The Touch ID is a quick fingerprint-based sign-in technology. Which can help you autofill passcodes and open the Laptop.

The TouchBar and Touch ID haven’t significantly changed since the 2018 Model but they still offer the same great experience.

New Keyboard and Trackpad

Apple has changed the keyboard on the 2019 Pro model to fix the problems with the keyboard such as stuck keys and debris in the butterfly mechanism.They have changed a material in the keyboard which is meant to solve the previous problems in the Old Models.

The result is an a much better typing experience there is yet very little key travel.It feels much more durable than previous versions.The Keyboard is certainly much better than before but there are yet some improvements to be made.

The trackpad has been enlarged which gives plenty of movement to guide the mouse around the screen with ease. The new Force Touch which is Apple’s ‘two layer’ system gives you multiple uses out of shallow and deep presses.

Screen And Battery Life

The MacBook Pro is highly recognised for its screen and internal power. It offers fantastic colour replication thanks to its P3 wide colour gamut support and brighter 500 nits brightness.

There is also True Tone Technology – as seen on the iPhone and iPad – which automatically adjusts colour balance to match your surrounding lighting environment, for more comfortable viewing. This can be easily switched of in the settings menu.

The entry-level model gets the new 8th gen quad-core Intel Core i5 with a 1.4GHz processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz) and 128MB of eDRAM.You can configure it up to a 1.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz). The other pre-configured model features a 2.4GHz Core i5 or 2.8GHz Core i7.

Graphics are provided by an Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 processor.

The Storage options depend on the configuration.You’ll need to decide whether 128GB-2TB.

The battery Life is pretty good on this model it can last from 8-10 Hours on a full Charge.
