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 review: The ultimate Apple laptop

 

Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro is basically every creative's dream machine, with a ton of power and a vastly improved keyboard. The larger screen makes it more useful than the 15-inch model it replaces, and it even has decent battery life for a workstation.

Powerful Intel CPU and AMD GPU ; Excellent new keyboard ; Gorgeous 16-inch Retina Display ; Best-in-class speakers and mic ; Relatively low starting price

Still only four USB-C ports ; No SD card reader ; Upgrades can get expensive quickly

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.

Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch Review: After 5 months, I’m convinced

 

The 16-inch MacBook Pro has a lot to prove, not least with its Magic Keyboard, but arguably just as much about whether it still fits the definition of what "professionals" are looking for. The new keyboard is about as close to a mea-culpa as Apple...

Magic Keyboard replaces the old Butterfly keys ; Masses of performance from CPU and GPU ; Excellent battery life ; Superlative build quality remains ; 16-inch display is more usable

Power comes with weight ; No USB-A or SD slot

Apple MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) review

 

The 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019) delivers a great new keyboard, epic battery life and impressive performance for a steep price.

If you're on the fence between Windows and macOS, the Dell XPS 15 is a compelling MacBook Pro alternative, as it offers comparable performance, a keyboard with even more travel and an OLED display for hundreds less. But if you are set on a Mac and...

Apple MacBook Pro (16-inch) long-term review: A true desktop replacement

 

For creative professionals who want or need macOS at full power on the go, Apple's MacBook Pro (16-inch) is the go-to machine. Be prepared, however, to pay a pretty penny for portable desktop Mac performance

Excellent display ; Full performance on battery power ; Far better than its predecessor ; Desktop power in a thin form factor

Pricey for the specs ; No memory card slot ; Noisey and hot

MacBook Pro 16-inch Review: Back to basics and getting them right

 

Apple's latest MacBook Pro has a new size: 16 inches. But apart from the size, everything else in the latest MacBook is about the good old basics, exactly the way MacBook fans prefer it. It's a pricey laptop but worth it.

Great performance ; Keyboard ; Screen speakers

MacBook Pro Diary: My 16-inch MacBook Pro review begins, albeit a little late

 

If I were writing a conventional review, my 16-inch MacBook Pro review would be a little late to the party. But my Diary pieces are all about how my impressions build over time with real-life use, so it's less important in this case that I took...
