Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch review: The best Mac in years

 

Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro doesn't reinvent the wheel. There's little in the way of the innovation we typically expect from Apple. Instead, the company has returned with a true crowd-pleaser, a powerful laptop that addresses every complaint that...

The best keyboard on a Mac ; Excellent performance for content creation ; The 16-inch screen is gorgeous ; Incredible speakers

MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) review: Escaping the butterfly effect

 

The 15-inch MacBook Pro is dead, long live the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Bigger screen, with a higher resolution Upgrades to processor, GPU, RAM and storage options Much-improved keyboard Decent audio upgrade

Starts expensive and goes up from there Touch Bar still doesn't make a compelling case for itself Slightly less portable than the much-loved 15-inch version Pots are still limited to USB-C

It will take more than a few days to come to a definitive conclusion about this, but there's at least a good chance that new 16-inch MacBook will make you actually like MacBook keyboards again.

16-inch MacBook Pro hands-on review

 

A new Magic Keyboard, larger display, better sound and faster performance make the 16-inch MacBook Pro a promising option for power users.

Radically improved Magic Keyboard Immersive 16-inch display with slimmer bezels Powerful 6-speaker audio Up to 8-core Core i9 CPU and 64GB RAM 100-watt battery promises 11 hours of juice

Display not 4K No full-size USB port or SD card

A vastly improved keyboard, larger 16-inch display with slimmer bezels and bigger battery make the 16-inch MacBook Pro a compelling option for serious pros.

Apple MacBook Pro 16in (2019) review

 

It really is sweet sixteen as Apple's latest notebook outshines its flawed predecessor

Stellar display ; Plenty of raw power ; Much improved keyboard ; Surprisingly great speakers ; Longer-lasting battery

720p FaceTime camera ; No way to later upgrade RAM

An excellent upgrade for creative pros, and a Mac notebook that bodes well for lower-end upgrades next year

Apple MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) review: A brilliant big-screen powerhouse

 

The biggest MacBook comes with a 16-inch screen and oodles of power. But does it fix the keyboard of previous models and is it worth the asking price?

That sumptuous big screen ; Great speakers ; Great keyboard - it's truly fixed ; Spec options are top notch

Screen isn't 4K resolution ; Battery life can struggle under pressure ; Huge expense when upgrading spec

Apple has produced a monster of a machine that is capable of doing pretty much any task that you throw at it. The screen is bright, crisp, and huge, while the new keyboard is once again a joy to type on - welcome back scissor mechanism.

MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) review

 

The MacBook Pro is kind of a titan in the computing world. Everyone knows what it is, and a lot of people want to get their hands on it, whether or not they're actually pros. So Apple launching a new 16-inch MacBook Pro is kind of a big deal – not just...

Powerful Finally, a new keyboard Dedicated Touch ID button

Still expensive Limited ports

The MacBook Pro is more powerful, backed up by a larger display and a redesigned keyboard. This may make it one of the best laptops on the market, but the high price and limited port selection may stop some folks from upgrading.

Apple MacBook Pro 16in (2019) review

 

The 16in version is better in every area than its predecessor

Screen resolution and colour accuracy ; Keyboard much improved ; Performance still blazing, with less heat

Still heavy, still expensive ; Touch Bar still divides opinion ; No HDR or OLED display yet

The 16in MBP actually feels like VFM given its performance and capabilities. Still the best overall laptop there is!
