Experience the innovative interface of the Touch Bar in the mid 2018 silver Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

The 15.4" Retina Display has a 2880 x 1800 resolution. It also supports the P3 color gamut, which allows for more vibrant colors. This ensures true-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, which are essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing. With True Tone technology, the white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience.

The Touch Bar places controls right at your fingertips and adapts to different apps to provide useful functions without having to navigate complex menus or memorize keyboard shortcuts. Replacing the function keys in the top row of the keyboard, the Touch Bar features a Retina-quality display and supports multi-touch input.

The power button has been upgraded with a Touch ID sensor, so you can quickly log into your MacBook Pro using your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID enables a quick, accurate reading of your fingerprint and uses sophisticated algorithms to recognize and match it with the Secure Enclave in the Apple T2 chip. It also brings "Hey Siri" function to the Mac.

The system features an 8th Gen Coffee Lake 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 six-core processor, 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 onboard memory, a 512GB PCIe-based SSD, four Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports, a Force Touch trackpad, a keyboard with a 3rd-gen butterfly mechanism, stereo speakers with double the dynamic range of its predecessor as well as improved bass, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology, and even a 3.5mm headphone jack.

This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple's website for upgrade eligibility.

True Tone Technology

With True Tone technology, the display and Touch Bar deliver a more natural viewing experience for design and editing workflows, as well as everyday tasks like browsing the web and writing email.

Apple T2 Chip

With the Apple T2 chip, the MacBook Pro delivers enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage, and also brings "Hey Siri" to the Mac.

Touch Bar

The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. The multi-touch, Retina-quality display changes automatically based on what you're doing, from showing traditional system controls, such as volume and brightness, to more directly interacting with or browsing through content. Intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text improve the typing experience, and you'll be able to customize the Touch Bar to fit your needs. The Touch Bar can also adapt to apps, such as Mail, Safari, Messages, and even third-party apps like Adobe Photoshop, so you'll have access to useful functions previously hidden in menus.

Touch ID

A Touch ID sensor has been integrated into the power button, so you can quickly log into your account, even when another user is logged in. You can also use it with Apple Pay to securely purchase things over the web.

Retina Display

The 15.4" Retina Display has a 2880 x 1800 resolution and features brighter LED backlighting than its predecessor as well as an increased contrast ratio, delivering deeper blacks and brighter whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it more power efficient than previous generations. It also supports the P3 color gamut, which allows for more vibrant colors. This ensures true-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, which are essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing.

Force Touch Trackpad

The Force Touch trackpad on the 15.4" MacBook Pro takes all the capabilities of multi-touch and adds force sensors that detect subtle differences in the amount of downward pressure you apply. This lets you have a deeper connection to your content, bringing more functionality right to your fingertip. It also introduces haptic feedback to MacBook Pro, allowing you not just to see what's happening on the screen, but to feel it. With multi-touch, you can use realistic gestures like swiping or pinching to switch between apps, navigate your content, and get the most out of your desktop space.

Thinner & Lighter

The 15.4" MacBook Pro features a redesigned enclosure design and all-metal unibody construction that creates a rigid and dense notebook that is also thin and light. At just 15.5 mm thin, the 15.4" MacBook Pro weighs just four pounds.

Audio

The speakers have been totally redesigned to provide as much as twice the dynamic range and up to 58 percent more volume, with two-and-a-half-times louder bass for maximum boom. Plus, they're connected directly to system power, enabling up to three times more peak power.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously or one multi-panel 5K display. The Macbook Pro has four ports, with each pair using a dedicated bus.

Apple has spent ten years converting its system ...

Apple has spent ten years converting its system from from 32 to 64 bit. Which does this computer have?
Asked by: Bruce
The computer can run software in 32 or 64 bit modes if you have the correct OS. For example if you have Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6 you can run software in 32 bit mode. However if you "upgrade" (if you believe that is a better option) to MacOS Catalina you can only run 64 bit mode software. If somebody really cares about it I am not upgrading to MacOS Catalina because I own very good and very important software in 32 bit mode that I can not (repeat to those apple "EXPERTS") I can not live without. I hope this can be helpful to you.

Does it come with international warranty?

Does it come with international warranty?
Asked by: Prabal
It comes with standard Apple Care like any new Apple computer. You can buy additional Apple Care + coverage for extra. You would have to look at apples international terms and conditions for Apple care. The warranty Would be through Apple not B&H (unless BH has a standard warranty for products) Alternatively you could buy insurance through another company in your area after purchase.

Does it come with OS Mojave? I do NOT want Catalina
Asked by: Richard
I'm not sure. When I bought mine, I brought the unopened box directly to an authorized Apple repair shop where the technician performed what I called a "soul transplant," getting everything off my old MacBook Pro (which had fried itself after 10 years of continuous use) and transferred it all to the new 15.3 MacBook Pro. Only few apps needed upgrading. I stuck with High Sierra because I had heard that some of the older apps that I used interacted in negative ways with some of the new operating systems. Every day starts with a message to upgrade the OS, but I see no need to create problems for myself when all my apps work (almost) perfectly with High Sierra.

model number?
Asked by: Mary
I no I’mlonger have that laptop. The keyboard quality was very poor, so I traded it toward the 16” when it was introduced. I’m still unhappy with the Touch Bar. I’ve done all I could find to turn off the Touch Bar, but it still picks up unintentional key presses.

I feel silly asking this, but is there a catch I'm missing? How can a NEW 15 inch, 32 GB RAM, 512 GB 2.6GHz intel core i7 2018 Mac be just a little over $2000? Seems a little too good to be true...?
Asked by: Libby
This is probably due to the fact that there's a newer model available from Apple. Last year, I paid over $3k for this model at these specs at the time.

question

does this support 100% P3 on the retina display? what about for external monitors also?
Asked by: Steven K.
Apple does not specify the percentage of the P3 coverage on the Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Mid 2018, Space Gray) BH #APMBPMR9356 It can support it externally, assuming the external monitor is also capable of displaying 100% of the P3 color space.
