13″ vs 15″ 2019 MacBook Pro – FULL REVIEW

by birtanpublished on August 28, 2020

What's going on guys Carl here back with another episode this one is all around the brand-new 2019 MacBooks that have just launched I've used them both the 13 as well as the 15 inch and this is my overall review and maybe thoughts on which model that you should end up

Grabbing because it's a tough one this time so let's start maybe with the smaller guy this is the 13 inch and this guy starts at $17.99 and that's just the ones that have come out this year you still have the lower end spec ones and

Unfortunately for these unlike the 15-inch you cannot spec them higher than a quad core and that's the 8th gen Intel i5 or i7 chips and historically Apple is kind of never shown as much love to the 13-inch obviously the 15-inch is the

Flagship but this guy for example you can't speck it up to 32 gigs of ram you can't get the highest graphics card and of course you can't get that core performance as you can in the larger and more expensive brother you do get the

For us PC ports for peripherals but if you are truly getting a pro machine for pro purposes you are crunching 4k edits you're into heavy photography and you don't want a dedicated system like an iMac you are probably already looking at

The larger 15-inch which has that capacity and has the power to crunch all those things now don't get me wrong the 13-inch very capable device I edited a video on this guy it was in 4k the timelines were buttery smooth but it

Just lacks the power of what we have in something larger and most people that I end up meeting with a 13-inch the daily uses that they have are of course we're processing browsing the net maybe checking a few powerpoints I don't think

You need the pro model the MacBook Air is totally fine for that and especially with the refresh of the MacBook Air that we saw at the end of last year I've been using this guy as my daily work device have been completely completely fine

With it I've even edited a video or two on it so even if you're looking for that flexibility in light use I've edited photos Photoshop is completely fine I think the MacBook Air is a better

Option yes it only has two USB seaports you don't get the touch part which I don't really end up using anyways this would be my recommendation if you're torn between either the 13-inch MacBook Pro or say the MacBook

Air – my recommendations for the 15 inch and I guess I kind of forgot to mention this at the beginning as the MacBook Pros have not received a design refresh they are almost identical to what we've seen in 2018 2017 it usually follows a

Four year refresh cycle for design the one thing that I have noticed in comparison to my 2018 which is kind of be confirmed by I fix it when they've torn these down there is a little thin membrane underneath the keys which means

They theoretically shouldn't get caught as easily because I know that's been a previous issue for these butterfly switches to pricing and this is where you really have to start saving up your kidneys or organs to start selling off

$23.99 base or $27.99 for a bit more SPECT up once you start adding on options you can get a four terabyte SSD you can spec this guy up to eight cores if you want that will run you $6,500 for a fully specked out model that is very

Very expensive I wouldn't recommend doing so unless you've just got you tools of money and then in that case you probably aren't watching this video you'll just end up selecting that and when we look closely

At these options yeah eight cores 300 bucks sure why not 16 or 32 gigs of ram ah this is a tough one $400 more what you get is what you are stuck with if you're looking to hold this device for maybe six seven years

Yes sure 32 gigs of ram overkill I usually am a sucker for that stick with the normal Radeon Pro 555 you don't need the 560 X and you know the big money crunch here is storage starts at 256 I almost find it a slap in the face that a

Laptop that starts at $2,300 only gets you 256 gigs of storage yes you can get an external hard drive but oh my goodness it's almost sad how much Apple is charging obviously 512 which I think the baseline which you need to get

That's an extra 200 bucks obviously like I said if you've got the coin to support it $1,000 for 2 terabytes or 4 terabytes Orencia 2,800 bones I think that's of course overkill but that's for only you to decide and the next big question is

Performance and I edited this very video on this guy obviously through the timeline it is buttery smooth just keep in mind though that I am using final cut and computers like this are optimized to edit in that way I didn't notice a hint

Of throttling when I was editing I still had Photoshop open I had over 10 pages open over on Safari it performs perfectly like it should though if you are though on premiere this is where things really start to change the

MacBook architecture isn't as good and that's where things slow down slightly and that's just the same with all Macs across the lineup same with my $10,000 I'm at its optimized to use Apple products and that's where you get

Trapped into the Apple ecosystem I mean if it works for you sure it's awesome if you can afford it great I think if you have the 2017 maybe even 2016 MacBook Pro if those are still working for you just like this guy is here I don't think

You need the upgrade especially as that next looming design change should happen in the next year let me know what you think about the MacBook Pros down below in the comments have you sold up any organs to afford one and which model

Will you end up getting catch you guys then face
