Literally just Apple, as expected, announced a new 16-inch MacBook Pro laptop. The new model, which Apple without too modesty calls the "best in the world" a professional laptop, will replace the 15-inch version. In short, the MacBook Pro 16 ″ 2019 (this is the largest Apple laptop since the discontinuation of the 17-inch model in 2012) received a new design, a large screen with very thin frames, new processors, but most importantly – a new Magic Keyboard with an improved “ scissor "mechanism and 1 mm key stroke, designed to replace the notorious" butterfly "(Butterfly).
The MacBook Pro 16 ″ 2019 received a 16-inch Retina display with thin frames and a resolution of 3072×1920 pixels. The display supports Wide Color (P3) and True Tone technologies, and is also characterized by a maximum brightness of 500 cd / m².
It is based on Intel Core processors of the previous 9th generation (Coffee Lake) – a 6-core Core i7 or an 8-core Core i9. Apple also highlights a redesigned and more efficient cooling system – centrifugal (radial) fans with modified blades and a radiator increased by 35% made it possible to increase airflow by 28%. Thanks to more efficient CO, the new 16-inch MacBook Pro stably delivers 12 watts more power at maximum loads for a long time. According to Apple, the new MacBook Pro 16 ″ 2019 with an 8-core Core i9 is 2.1 times more productive than a 15-inch on a 4-core Core i7 processor.
Graphics processing is provided by the discrete adapter AMD Radeon Pro 5300M or Radeon Pro 5500M with 4 or 8 GB of video memory. 512 gigabytes and one terabyte SSDs are installed in standard configurations, and the DDR4-2666 MHz RAM capacity is 16 GB. But if you want, you can expand the RAM to 64 GB and install the SSD on as many as 8 terabytes (for the first time in the history of the line).
In addition to the new Magic Keyboard with an improved “scissor” mechanism, which the manufacturer calls the most convenient on Mac laptops, there is a Touch Bar (shortened, but there is a physical Escape button), Touch ID sensor and Force Touch trackpad.
Favorably stands out the new 16-inch MacBook Pro and autonomy, which, thanks to an element of increased capacity (100 W * h, in a set of memory capacity of 96 W) reaches 11 hours in the mode of browsing sites via a wireless network. Also worth mentioning is a 720p webcam, an array of three microphones for recording “studio-quality” sound, and a six-speaker stereo with Dolby Atmos support.
A set of ports is represented by four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The wireless interfaces have Wi ‑ Fi (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0.
Engineers couldn’t fit another important detail into the 15-chassis case, and let the new 16-inch model be slightly and slightly thicker (16.2 mm) and heavier (1.95 kg). Full dimensions are 357.9×245.9×16.2 mm.
Acceptance of pre-orders on the Apple website has already begun. The starting price for the 16-inch MacBook Pro in the United States is the same as it was for the 15-inch model, which was discontinued – $ 2,400.
The most expensive 16-inch MacBook Pro with an 8-core processor and 8-terabyte SSD costs an impressive $ 6099. By the end of the week, the new MacBook Pro will appear in some Apple stores and at authorized Apple retailers in the United States, and then in other countries.
