16-inch MacBook Pro Review! Everything New vs 15-inch

by birtanpublished on September 10, 2020

And it's here the 2019 MacBook Pro 16 inch I'm actually very excited about this one so this is Apple's latest and greatest portable laptop and basically is unlike the rumors which we've heard but I'm very excited about the fact that we do get a slightly larger display more

Power better speakers just in every way supposed to look better so it's not the upgrade we were hoping for with complete edge to edge bezels but it still does look a little bit more sleek I love the new wallpapers that they released

Alongside them – great way to showcase that display which unfortunately still doesn't have IP s so I have the 2018 mid refresh MacBook Pro and you know when I've got that one then Apple came out in January with eight core version and I

Felt a little burned so I'm glad I didn't upgrade to the eight core in January you know these refreshes seem to be coming faster and faster on the MacBook Pros so the great thing about this one

Is that it's not much larger but oh wow so it's about 0.3 pounds heavier and I can definitely feel the heft it doesn't have much of a larger footprint but it certainly is a little bit bigger point zero three inches thicker so that's the

New one it's the old one so yeah the footprint is a little bit larger but not terribly so the surprising thing is the screen is only four percent larger so the displace it's 0.28 inches higher no it's not considerably larger but it

Certainly is there so let me set this up real quick I'll get into all those changes right so I've set it up with my applications the basics and I got to tell you it does feel a little heftier so the display right here you do have

Less bezel on the top it's still you know not very pleasing to look at compared to the Dell XPS but I'm still grateful for a larger display it does feel considerably larger it's only four percent larger but even in something

Like final cut you have a little bit more padding room just feels a little bit nicer to have that a little bit of space of course with the larger computer you get upgrades in other areas like a bigger battery now 100 watt hours which

Is the biggest that the FAA will actually let you take on an airplane and the battery life is about an hour better I believe and asked for display it's slightly sharper here with a 226 pixel per inch density with a 30 72 by

1920 display resolution otherwise in terms of colors I can't really notice a difference it's capable of 500 and it's brightness both still look fantastic display alone quality wise I would not say is worth the upgrade and the size

It's just not that big of a difference still it's the biggest laptop that you can get from Apple right now and I will appreciate that using you know Photoshop editing and final cut and whatnot then of course we have the new keyboards they

Stick out significantly there's more space in between the actual keys you know have this inverted team up in sideways arrows instead of them all being crammed into one area here you also have a dedicated Escape key which

Is nice to have that was one of the biggest complaints apparently on the last generation besides the keyboard itself so Apple O's went back to a scissor switch mechanism iFixit has confirmed

That and it's a lot more satisfying it feels like my 2015 MacBook Pro which I did add or so you have more travel room and it seems like maybe a little bit quieter but it definitely does have more of a satisfying response and that here

Was I believe the biggest complaint with this series aside from like the thermal throttling regarding that Apple has actually made this thing more efficient 28% more airflow 35% larger heat sink area so as far as thermals go we'll test

That out here but Apple says that has been resolved and of course you'd want that to be fixed with an 8 core processor in here it's got the latest ninth generation Intel i8 this one is the base model so I don't have the top

Spec here it's just the six core 2.6 gigahertz and will do a benchmark compared to my six core over here but it is an i-9 so testing the thermals getting 111 a 114 115 116 and that is hot and on the new one same spot 112

So definitely cooler it's still pretty scorching but I guess they were not lying when they said that the thermals were improved here and the Geekbench scores surprised me Wow so this was four and a half thousand dollars when I

Bought it thousand eighteen with the six core which was the maxed out processor at the time and I get a lower multi-core score than the entry level on the 2019 MacBook Pro so there's progress for you this was

Only twenty four hundred dollars so two thousand dollars less in just one year and you're getting this kind of performance that's amazing so I can't wait to see what happens in the future when Apple switches to their AR M

Processors but that's seriously surprising of course the bigger the processor the lower the clock speed will go you'll be able to do multi-threaded applications more efficiently and also very interesting to know is that this is

The first MacBook ever to include a variable refresh rate display it allows you to change the Hertz to match the video resolution in your video editing workflow so if that's important to you it's interesting to know and

Unfortunately it's 2019 and we still have a 720p recording situation here in the MacBook Pro so no improvement in quality but Apple did improve the microphones they now have a three microphone array and I want to see in

This video just test that out see doesn't really sound better and if I step back from the laptop what am I gonna hear is gonna sound better on the 2019 MacBook Pro which I've heard that's quite impressive actually so next up is

Speakers one thing that I've always loved about the MacBook Pros the speaker game is on point it gets better this time around okay so playing galleys latest hit on this MacBook and switching to this

One oh wow definitely more rich so this is more of a booming bassy sound this one's a little bit higher her pitch not as deep or rich so I definitely do notice it it's a little more shrill and I've loved

The speaker quality here this just takes it to another level more depth to your music wow yeah for real that's amazing so there's two subwoofers one on each side six speakers all-in-all an impressive system apples always been

Killing it with the speaker's here and the MacBook Pro the new one is no exception just for the kicks so I've got a twenty six minute video here 4k 30 frames per second and it's the same on both so last year's i-96 core versus

This year's i7 six core and we're off just want to see how long it takes how they compare so far in the Geekbench though this computer is faster than my old one even at half the price and just like

That the 2018 MacBook Pro beat out the 2019 obviously this one was better SPECT back in the day but with a higher Geekbench score it still fell behind not by much though it should be finishing up here shortly so very impressive

Performance you're getting for $2,400 you're getting in gorgeous display to go alongside with it only 23 seconds behind this one and of course you have that new and updated keyboard which is much improved how it should have been from

The beginning you get better speakers better microphones and better battery life it's a really great value all in all I'm actually editing this video on the 16 inch macbook pro just to see and in final cut it was a pleasure you know

No stuttering no lag latest version I was very satisfied with that the screen space just a little bit more it does make a little bit more difference like I said you have a little bit more space for all your controls the one thing that

I would recommend with this laptop is go for the 32 gigabyte option when it comes to RAM I came to that roof pretty close with 12 by its consumed and if I had a couple more apps running in the background and

Be out of memory so I do recommend that you opt for the 32 gigabyte option even though this ramp is faster now at 26 66 megahertz versus 2400 last year I'd still go for an additional upgrade there overall though the values fantastic 512

Gigabytes solid-state storage coming with this laptop I think it's the best value for an entry-level MacBook Pro ever alright so there it is the 2019 macbook pro it's not the update we were expecting not as futuristic and my

Biggest complaint has to be the fact that it's still using Wi-Fi 5 he doesn't have the new Wi-Fi 6 standard so I can't take advantage of those speeds on my router and the 720p camera but otherwise it's a really good value you're getting

Better bang for the buck better battery life better speakers a better bigger display here and of course the upgraded keyboard so if you don't have a 2018 2017 MacBook Pro and now's a good time to jump in as this will be pretty

Current for a good amount of time I would not be surprised if Apple comes out fixes those things with the camera and the Wi-Fi in the span of what like 6 to 8 months but overall a great and solid upgrade I'll be maxing one out for

Myself personally so thanks for watching guys stay tuned for more peace
