So it’s finally here, the well talked about heavily rumored new 16 inch MacBook Pro has finally arrived, so i think the most interesting thing about this 16 inch MacBook Pro is that it’s replacing the 15 inch MacBook pro consequently it’s not going alongside the 15 inch and then the other sizes. 

This is the new biggest 16 inch MacBook pro and its slotting in at the same starting price that the 15 inch MacBook pro did but with some obvious and market improvements. 

Let’s Have a in-depth look at the all new 16 inch MacBook Pro.

The Design 

The design first of all as you can see in the picture is pretty much exactly the same footprint as a 15 inch MacBook pro, same for USB type-c ports but its 0.77 mm thicker and a quarter of a pound heavier. Moreover it’s 4.3 pounds same space grey but it now comes with space grey stickers now hence that adds to the total confusion about which Apple devices come with which stickers but the main difference now of course as you can tell by the name is the new 16 inch MacBook Pro display.

The Display

It is just modernizing the look of the laptop by pushing out the display from 15 inches to 16 inches and that’s a bigger canvas for everything you already do on the laptop. Moreover there are some news about the release of the Touch Screen MacBook.

So this 16 inch screen gives you a new resolution of 3072 by 1920.That’s the same pixel density of 226 PPI same, brightness 500 nits, same P3 color gamut but just imagine basically pushing more of that display outward to shrink the bezel and give you more screen real estate that’s the biggest major change and I love that now with this bigger display. Moreover Apple.

The Battery

if you take a look at Apple’s site you may also notice there’s somehow claiming 11 hours so an extra hour of battery life so if you’re wondering how they did that it’s because the extra tiny bit of thickness combined with improved battery chemistry allowed them to fit a new hundred watt hour battery in the 16 inch MacBook Pro. 

Touchpad and Keyboard

There’s some new things with this keyboard and by new things I mean also kind of old things so they’re going back to this scissor mechanism for the switches from the years of like the 2015 MacBook Pro so the 16 inch MacBook Pro are now more reliable, they’re more clicky, they have a little bit more travel so it’s almost as if going back in time.

 This is actually kind of an upgrade here but it’s not exactly the same as previous generations, it’s really kind of a hybrid in-between it’s still low travel about one millimeter of travel but it’s more stable than butterfly keys where they’re calling it: the new magic keyboard.

What’s not there ?

I would have liked to have seen a video improvement with the webcam too but they didn’t do that either way, that’s pretty much it, you can tell by the length of the video moreover it’s a pretty small refresh, there’s not a whole ton going on. It’s still the same, you know design same huge trackpad, same ports but it’s more of a refresh on a better ideal 2020 16 inch MacBook Pro.

Starting Price is: $2200
