Apple MacBook Pro 13 (2020) review: The hobbyist

 

The latest 13-inch MacBook Pro features updated processors, a revamped keyboard, and some confusing configurations. So, does it earn in its pro designation?

Industry-leading display ; Thin and light design ; Excellent new keyboard ; Hard-as-rock build quality

Confusing processor choices ; Average battery life

Apple MacBook Pro review (13-inch, 2020): Easier to recommend

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro is the third and last laptop in Apple's lineup to receive an upgraded keyboard, meaning those much-maligned butterfly keys are now a thing of the past. In addition to a pleasant typing experience, the 13-inch MBP brings improved...

Much-improved keyboard ; Bright and colorful display ; Apple doubled the base storage ; Healthy battery life

Bottom side can get hot ; You have to buy at least the $1799 model to get 10th-gen Intel processors ; No discrete graphics option on the 13-inch model ; We still miss USB-A ports and the SD card reader ; Still not feeling the Touch Bar

Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020) review: return to baseline

 

Although Apple could do better on battery life, it's got a great keyboard and good performance.

New keyboard ; Faster processor on upgraded model ; Nice build quality

Average-at-best battery life ; Average-at-best webcam ; Bezels a little large by current standards

The keyboard is fixed; the rest is exactly what you’d expect

MacBook Pro 2020 (13-inch) Review

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro gets important, incremental changes

Elegant design ; Solid performance ; Great keyboard ; Excellent SSD speeds ; Powerful speakers

A bit heavy ; Thick bezels ; Battery life could be longer

The MacBook Pro offers double the storage with great performance and the excellent Magic keyboard, but the battery life could be longer.

Apple 13-inch Macbook Pro 2020

 

Apple has finally delivered a 13-inch Macbook Pro with a Magic Keyboard, but the pricey base models cling to outdated hardware.

The uber-satisfying Magic Keyboard ; Higher configurations bring powerful 10th generation Intel CPUs ; Detailed, loud speakers that are fantastic for daily use

Can get hot when running demanding tasks ; Base configuration comes with older DDR3 RAM and 8th generation Intel CPUs ; Considerably more expensive than its Windows rivals and comparable Macbook Airs

The Dell XPS 13 is another amazing laptop, which has been a suave favorite among power users for years thanks to its excellent keyboard, its flexible hardware configurations, and its excellent build quality. For a fully decked out XPS with a 10th-gen...

2020 13-inch MacBook Pro review: The standard macOS workhorse

 

A new keyboard and faster performance make this slightly thicker laptop a winner.

Strong CPU and memory performance in the higher-priced specs

Graphics performance is solid but not good enough for heavy work on 4K video and other similarly demanding tasks

For the first time in a while, Apple's laptop lineup is looking both consistent and comprehensive. That's a good thing, because more options are available for each user's specific use case.
