The Apple MacBook Pro 2018 series by Apple are the most advanced, intelligently designed and among the most powerful laptops around the World. Apple has approached the MacBook Pro lineup in a different way. Apple has made the MacBook Pro most mainstream, most featured lineup.
The degree of improvement, however, started narrowing down after the 2016 update. But the Apple MacBook Pro 2018 came as a pleasant surprise to the customers. After testing it, we were reminded that Apple is indeed the originator of premium laptops.
We have certainly seen some improvements in the new MacBook.
The design of MacBook pro 2018 is identical to the 2017 Mac. The aluminum design may not be sleek bit it sure gives away a solid feel. The touch id is the fastest you’ll ever see. The bezels around the display, however, can be improved. The design could have been better as the new laptops like XPS 3 beat the Mac Pro 2018 by far in terms of sleek design.
The MacBook Pro 15 comes with an Intel Core i7-8850H (six-core processor. It has a base frequency of 2.6 GHz and boosts to an attractive 3.6 GHz on Turbo.
The Apple MacBook Pro 2018 comes with four thunderbolt ports. These ports provide an amazing throughput and allow you to connect two 4k monitors at once.
The MacBook Pro 15 comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The keyboards in most of the MacBook Pro lineup have been disappointing. There was a definite lack of durability and travel space on keys.
The keyboard of MacBook Pro 15, however, carries a lot of improvements. The layout seems pretty comfortable and is a lot quieter. Other than this, the keyboard is quiet durable.
MacBook Pro 2018 carries powerful speakers. The sound quality does not fall even at the highest volume. The speakers of Macbook 2018 are identical to its predecessors.
The 13 inch display of MacBook Pro 2018 seems pretty attractive. There’s one new feature to the display i-e True Tone. The addition of TrueTone has indeed come as an improvement. The display seems easier on the eyes as the color points are adjusted to the room lighting and colors by True tone. True tone basically adjusts the colors of the display to make white look actual white.
The touch bar in the MacBook Pro 2018 was not a necessary feature but it sure makes the Mac look more attractive. It makes surfing through gallery or music easier.
The MacBook Pro 2018 might as well be the most powerful, the most efficient system there is.
According to a research carried out by the LaptopMag, it has the fastest SSD ever. They carried out a test by copying some heavy files. The results showed a speed of 2519 megabytes per second. It took the system just 2 seconds to complete this task, which is pretty amazing.
This is one area where the MacBook Pro 2018 falls short. The Mac Book Pro yielded 41.1 frames per second in the Cinebench R15 benchmark which is mechanism of measuring graphics performance. The XPS 13 scored 49 frames per second. The difference is quite clear.
So we think that the Mac pro is lacking behind the graphics game.
The introduction of T2 chip the MacBook Pro lets you command your Mac without even touching it. There is a siri button on the touch pad, but you won’t have to use it. All you got to do is to train the Mac to recognize your voice. After that, all you have to do is say Hey siri!
The battery life of MacBook 2018 is better than average. There are systems with better battery lifetimes out there, but it still is better than average. We are satisfied with the battery life keeping in view the high processing it carries out. But on the other hand, the battery could have had more improvements. The battery performances of its competitors like the XPS 3 are better.
We ran different custom heat tests in which we pushed the Mac to the farthest. We concluded that even at the most extreme, the worst thing that happens is that fans get loud. The heat remains below the comfort level.
The 13 inch MacBook Pro starts at $1799 for a quad 8th gen core i5 processor, 256GB of storage and 8gb RAM. A Core i7 with 16GB RAM will cost you up to $2,499. The price is higher than it should have deserved.
To sum it up, the MacBook Pro 2018 is not for the general masses. One reason is the obvious price factor but also because of its power functioning. Apple MacBook Pro 2018 is a high functioning and intelligently built system. It is perfect for creative working professionals who demand high power portable laptops. It is a smarter and faster powerhouse.
