Apple Macbook Pro

Finally, Apple unveils the new Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch 2018, as Apple is always working on making new technology faster and more reliable. Apple held a familiar program Instead of having their very own event like they do for the new iPhone, on Apple’s popular WWDC event. About this quieter launch, it doesn’t mean that Apple isn’t excited about the new MacBook Pro. While MacBooks, iPhones and iPads, are the main regular consumers, they are focusing on the high level of performance and creative design MacBook Pro with a high price tag.

Solid and Creative Design

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch has a very creative design as it has always looked like same which is good and bad. If we see it on the positive side, then some of the great features are like the aluminum design still feels solid, and with the Touch ID button which helps the user to log in and log out with a touch of registerd finger. One good feature is on the top volume there is no sound rich no distortion with speakers.

And on the negative side, Apple look slimmed as other notebook makers but Apple’s machine feels on the heavy side it has more weight than other notebooks which have same dimensions. Another negative side we can consider is the thicker bezels around the display, especially toward the top. Apple should add some more color options to the MacBook Pro like white but still, there are only still two color that is Silver and Space Gray.

When we compare MacBook Pro to other notebooks like Dell XPS 13 is a lot more compact at 12 x 7.9 x 0.46 inches with a lighter weight of 2.65 pounds but at 3.02 pounds and 12 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches, the MacBook Pro 2018 is not as much as easily portable as I would like. Even if we compare it to with the Huawei MateBook X Pro which is more 14-inch of a screen but it’s still lighter than the 13-inch MacBook at 2.9 pounds.

Hardware and Performance

As Apple always give options to their clients for upgrading of hardware according to their choice. The MacBook Pro 2018 version comes with a different verity of prices and configurations, instead of the previous version of the MacBook Pro. The normal version of MacBook Pro comes with a 2.2GHz, Intel Core i7 6-core processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory and 256GB SSD storage, Radeon Pro 555X graphics card for $2,399.

If the user wants to upgrade the processor, speed and display quality then it can be configured to add a 2.9GHz Intel Core i9 6-core processor for $400 more, an upgrade to the AMD Radeon Pro 560X for an additional $100 and 32GB of RAM for $400 more. There is also an option to upgrade the storage to 512GB SSD, 1TB SSD and 2TB SSD for the price of $200, $600 and $1,400 respectively.

Battery Life: Above than Average

With the latest MacBook Pro 2018 offers better battery life than the average. The best thing is the when you browse the web over Wi-Fi then all the pages are stored on a local server which is the best part and not allows Wi-Fi router to import a site from the online server every time. The MacBook Pro has a capacity of 8 Hours and 43 minutes on continuously using Wi-Fi with web suffering which is a bit above the average. The MacBook Pro 2018 has better battery life than Surface Book 2, MateBook X Pro and XPS 13.
