Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch (2018)

 

With the addition of an Intel Core i9 processor, the sleek 15-inch MacBook Pro is now one of the most powerful desktop-replacement laptops you can buy, making it an excellent choice for well-heeled, on-the-go creative pros.

Excellent battery life. Core i9 processing muscle. Sleek, thin all-metal design. Beautiful display with automatic color-temperature adjustment. Roomy SSD.

High starting price, and painfully expensive as configured. Limited I/O options.

Bottom Line: With the addition of an Intel Core i9 processor, the sleek 15-inch MacBook Pro is now one of the most powerful desktop-replacement laptops you can buy, making it an excellent choice for well-heeled, on-the-go creative pros.

2018 MacBook Pro packs Core i9 power into its 15-inch frame

 

This high-end 15-inch laptop includes an Intel Core i9 CPU and other upgrades that finally live up to its "Pro" moniker.

The latest 15-inch MacBook Pro offers major internal upgrades to the CPU, RAM, storage and display. The Core i9 version delivers a worthwhile speed boost on processor-intensive tasks.

The basic design hasn't been updated, keeping the same advantages and flaws. Adding the new high-end options drives the cost way up.

The 2018 MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop delivers the serious computing muscle that power users and creative pros crave -- but everyone else should wait for the rest of the line to be updated.

New MacBook Pro review: the heat is on

 

New processors, new keyboard, and True Tone displays

Powerful processors ; Thin and light design ; True Tone display

Polarizing keyboard design ; No SD card slot ; Difficult repairability

So you have to separate what you wish Apple would do from what it has done. And after the software update, what Apple has done is deliver a very good laptop, one I think you can trust. But increasingly, it’s getting harder to love.

Apple MacBook Pro 15 2018 (2.6 GHz, 560X) Laptop Review

 

Handbrake Deluxe. Apple finally ships the MacBook Pro 15 with the new Intel processors. They feature 6 cores and should increase the multi-core performance significantly. At least in theory, because a comparison with the predecessor shows that the...

excellent case ; very good screen ; huge trackpad with great precision ; usually quiet cooling solution ; high Wi-Fi transfer rates & Bluetooth 5.0 ; good speakers ; Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 with DisplayPort 1.4 (AMD GPU)

insufficient power adapter ; fans running while idling and loud under maximum stress ; neither USB-A, HDMI, nor SD-reader ; very expensive especially the upgrades

Similar to the current MacBook Pro 13 2018, it took two comprehensive software updates to fix some of the problems after the launch. Besides general improvements including the battery runtime, they were focused on the poor performance utilization of...

Review: The 2018 i7 15-inch MacBook Pro is much more than a spec bump

 

Looking at the outside of the computer, it is very easy to think that the new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Core i7 processor is unchanged from last year's model. However, there are a surprising amount of improvements beyond just a new and powerful...

Sure, we didn't see a redesign of the exterior, but that shouldn't undercut the laundry list of other improvements we saw this year on the 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro. This is the largest amount of improvement we've seen when it comes to an off-year...

MacBook Pro (15-inch, mid-2018) review

 

Same body, big leap in power

Fantastic design ; True Tone works well when you want it ; Touch Bar is improving ; Very good performance

Expensive ; Lack of ports ; Keyboard still feels a little flat

The MacBook Pro 2018 15-inch is a powerful pro notebook with a fantastic design. However, in its bid to appeal to the mass market, it might turn off some professionals.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (2018) review: Power never looked so good

 

Apple takes its rivals to school with a truly outstanding laptop

Gorgeous looks; Superb performance; Excellent display quality

Touch Bar and Siri are still a little pointless

Apple’s latest 15in MacBook Pro is one of the best laptops we’ve ever tested, and our favourite to boot. Combining raw power with stylish portability, it’s everything you could ever want in a 15in notebook.
