Was my 16″ MacBook Pro Worth $8500? – 1 Month Review

by birtanpublished on August 17, 2020

Part of this episode was sponsored by dashlane hey guys what's up it's Karl here and it's crazy to think that I've had my new MacBook Pro the 16 inch for almost the past month and this is by far the most expensive laptop that I've ever had a chance to buy this thing fully

Spectat canadian dollars has cost me eight thousand plus dollars that's nuts the ultra crappy Canadian dollar has something to do with this but if you do live in the US this thing will cost you

Around six thousand sixty-five hundred and other parts of the world you guys just get kind of pooped on pie Apple talks it's a very expensive device but actually when you compare it to say my last year's 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro and

If you're like me the sucker that bought this guy I am truly sorry you got shafted and before we get into my full review of course my sponsor for today's episode I need it because I needed to afford this laptop thanks to – lame and

When you think about how many accounts you have online whether that's social media Facebook Instagram Twitter banking accounts every single one of those requires a password that's where dashlane comes in it's a simple way to

Store fill passwords and her own personal info there's no more need to write them down leave them lying around on little bits of paper ultimately dashlane is the only tool you need for your online security that will actively

Keep you safe with all those passwords that you're trying to remember and on top of that – Lang does come with a VPN for all your devices honestly wish I had that when I was out in China if you check out – lang

Comm / carl conrad that'll get you 30 days of premium for free and also my code carl conrad will snag you 10% off plug duties achieved part of the laptop paid off let's get back to this comparison like I was saying the very

Last model of the 15-inch when I expect this guy yeah it was the first machine with 32 gigs of ram and had an i9 8 cores it was an absolute beast I know some of the throttling issues that we had initially were fixed this

Guy still to this date doesn't have any issues the problem is just technology gets better we have sixteen inch this guy is now discontinued this guy is almost doubling the specs that this guy has inside but

It isn't doubling the price and obviously you got to give huge shout-outs to Apple they could have charged way more money but when you fully spec this guy it isn't too too bad especially when you compare that to what

You would have got a couple months ago if you did buy this guy I am so so sorry physically there is a hair of a difference you won't be able to tell them you can see maybe a millimeter larger but honestly in the month that

I've used this guy I haven't been able to really tell the difference in screen real estate size unless you've got them both side-by-side here yeah you can see that the bezels are way thinner on the 16 inch maybe that's just a bit of

Self-justification you could perhaps grab this guy say in the Apple refurbish torque but if you are brand new to the market if you're looking for a device right now and don't own one yet these 16 inch should be the way to go

Honestly the performance has been spectacular as a device really should if you're spending that kind of money but it's been so good that I've actually considered selling my iMac Pro this is truly a device that is a portable beast

Of a workstation maybe I'm a bit biased though I don't even scratch the surface of what this guy can handle I don't shoot red I don't shoot an 8k I don't even shoot in pro res I'm just recording off of a Sony in 4k in its native format

And this guy crunches that obviously it does totally fine even my 15-inch did this guy has really future-proofed itself and if I were to recommend a spec to most of you guys I wouldn't get the 2.4 gigahertz I wouldn't spend the extra

Hundred bucks for that upgrade 32 gigs of ram absolutely if you can squeeze by to get the 64 gigs you'll have this device for five years sure don't get 8 terabytes of space you can still work off of an external hard drive if you've

Got stuff on the cloud that's totally fine too it's obviously tempting to get that Mac spec but don't do it unless you've got oodles of money but had to probably wouldn't be watching this video you

Probably already have it to the keyboard which was always my number one complaint of my 15-inch models I couldn't kind of fathom that a for $5,000 device had a defective keyboard but I've had to repair them at least three to

Four times icky gunk would always seem to get stuck in them and they just would kind of fail or get stuck on a certain key these scissor switches have a lot more throw they're more durable if you've ever had an iMac keyboard I've

Got mine for my iMac Pro it's identical the real big upgrade for me is actually being the audio experience and the speakers have just been redesigned and there's so much better the sound is fuller even compared to say my 2018

Model there is a big difference this is by far the best sounding laptop and can even give most desktops are run for its money unless they've got standalone speakers I'll try to play a quick sample here

Hopefully this doesn't get dinged for copyrights very impressive sounding speakers but

Anyways that is been my review of the 2019 16 inch MacBook Pro obviously if you grab this guy you won't get disappointed it is the best laptop that Apple has made I know that's a saying that they say every time really praying

You haven't upgraded in the last 6 months but I think if you can hold out a bit longer if you like a smaller form factor I would not be surprised if we saw a 14 inch MacBook Pro dropped sometime early next year I hope you guys

Enjoyed this episode I'm gonna keep on working because I got to pay off the rest of this guy and hopefully catch you in one of my next episodes or vlogs bass
