Apple Macbook Pro 2019: 8-core processors and Updated Keyboard

Designers, content creators, professionals and anyone else planning to use the 8-core 15/13-inch MacBook Pro for tapping into their creative juices is bound to appreciate this beast.

Launched sometime back, the 6-core 15-inch MacBook Pro pioneered a revolution in the history of portable smart devices. This year, Apple has attempted to take this accomplishment one notch higher, with the launch of the world’s seemingly fastest MacBook Pro, with a little tweak to the KSP (Keyboard Service Program), to address its existing butterfly keyboard issues.

For several years, users have been complaining about ‘missed or double’ key presses in Mac devices. Thankfully, the world’s second largest telecom giant has silently acknowledged and resolved this issue—as evident in their latest product line.

What makes MacBook Pro 2019 better than its predecessors?

  • Both the 13-inch and 15-inch versions have retained the same large Force Touch trackpad, making it easier for us to use the native gestures. It’ll definitely boost workplace productivity.
  • The 4th Gen Butterfly switches promise better reliability and a faster typing speed.
  • Apple, for the first time ever, has roped in an 8-core CPU with 8th and 9th gen Intel processors inside a premium housing. This beast can be configured up to 5.0 GHz Turbo Boost with 4TB of PCIe NVMe SSD, 32GB DDR4 2400 MHz RAM, 4GB GDDR5 video RAM and a Radeon Pro 560X.
  • Peak brightness is 500 nits, supporting the True Tone technology and P3 wide color gamut.
  • Highly versatile Thunderbolt 3 ports allow users to easily connect with external GPU solutions and up to 2 5K monitors.
  • Killer stereo speakers and Apple’s T2 security chip add to its overall specifications.
  • The best part is every MacBook device is covered by the Keyboard Service Program, wherein users can seek assistance for 4 years, after the first retail sale of the unit.

These unique features make the new MacBook Pro 40% more better and 2 times faster than its predecessors. This means, video editors can edit up to 11 multi-cam streams simultaneously, using the Final Cut Pro X in 4K resolution. Even photo editing and filters are rendered 75% faster than earlier.

All this amazingness comes at a price of $1,799 (for the 13-inch model) and $2,399 (for the 15-inch model). MacBook Pro 2019 is already up for sale at Apple’s official website, starting from today. It’ll take up to one week for the laptops to reach the authorized resellers. Better hurry!
