Apple MacBook Pro Overview

  • 1Description

The space gray mid 2018 Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar has been upgraded with an 8th Generation Intel Core processor, True Tone display technology that automatically adjusts white balance to match the color temperature of the surround light, Apple's T2 coprocessor chip, and a quieter keyboard. All of this helps to create a more powerful and versatile system system for photographers, video editors, 3D graphic designers, gamers, and coders.

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 contains the 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 with "Hey Siri" functionality.

This system is powered by an 8th Gen Coffee Lake 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core processor that features a burst speed of up to 3.8 GHz, while 8GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The system memory cannot be upgraded.

The 13.3" IPS Retina display features a WQXGA 2560 x 1600 screen resolution with a 227 ppi pixel density. It has LED backlighting with a maximum brightness of 500 nits, and it includes support for the P3 wide color gamut. Integrated Intel Iris Graphics 655 delivers a sharp, clear picture, and you'll also be able to output video to an external display using the system's Thunderbolt 3 ports, which feature native DisplayPort output. One Thunderbolt 3 port can support one 5K display at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 at 60 Hz, or dual UHD 4K displays at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz, each of which are able to support over a billion colors. Also supported are dual displays at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 at 60 Hz with millions of colors.

For long-term storage of your files, this MacBook Pro is equipped with a 256GB PCIe SSD. If you want to add external peripherals, four Thunderbolt 3 ports support bi-directional transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s, while also supporting 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and device charging. 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi is built-in for wireless networking, and Bluetooth 5.0 technology will allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, three microphones, stereo speakers, a 64-key backlit keyboard with four arrow keys, an ambient light sensor, and a large Force Touch trackpad.

The 13.3" MacBook Pro includes a 61W USB Type-C power adapter that operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz, a 6.6' USB Type-C charging cable, and a built-in 58Wh lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts for up to 10 hours before recharging is required - or up to 30 days of standby time.

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.

General Features

Processor - More Power At Its Cores
With an 8th Intel Core processor, the MacBook Pro reaches higher heights in compute performance. The 13.3" model now features a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core with up to 3.8 GHz Turbo Boost speeds that are up to twice as fast as the previous generation. So when you're powering through pro-level processing jobs like compiling code, rendering 3D models, adding special effects, layering multiple tracks, or encoding video, you'll get everything done. Faster.
Memory - Run More, Wait Less
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 13.3" MacBook Pro can now be configured with up to 16GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory.
Graphics - Eye-Opening Performance
The 13.3" model with Touch Bar features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM - twice as much as the previous generation - which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most - creating your work.
Blackmagic eGPU - Desktop-Class Graphics
Blackmagic Design has created an external GPU (eGPU) for the MacBook Pro (sold separately). So you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the portability of a notebook. Housed in an all‑in‑one aluminum enclosure, the Blackmagic eGPU is powerful yet quiet, charges your MacBook Pro using Thunderbolt 3, and has built-in I/O connections to drive both a Thunderbolt 3 display and VR accessories simultaneously. With the Blackmagic eGPU and MacBook Pro, you can accelerate pro apps, create VR content, and enjoy smooth gaming.
Apple T2 Chip
Introducing the Apple T2 chip, a second‑generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Pro even more secure. Featured on the 13.3" model with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 chip includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one. And the Apple T2 chip brings a familiar voice to MacBook Pro - Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music, or answer your questions.
SSD Storage - Make Quicker Work of Everything
The MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that is fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2 GB/s and sequential write speeds up to 2.2 GB/s. The 13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is available with up to a 2TB SSD - enough space to take even your biggest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.
Thunderbolt 3 - A Powerful & Versatile Port
Thunderbolt 3 combines high bandwidth with the versatility of the USB Type‑C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. Since Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, no matter how you plug in, it's always right side up.
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. It changes automatically based on what you're doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use - system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a few.
Tap It, Hold It, Flick It, Slide It
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while watching a movie.
Just What You Need, Right Where You Need It
Many Mac apps, such as Final Cut Pro X, Photos, Logic Pro X, Mail, and more have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you're using, bringing these shortcuts front and center. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.
Customize What You Use Most
You can create shortcuts right in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari, and Final Cut Pro X to help you work faster and be more productive.
Touch ID - Advanced Security, Right At Your Fingertip
Unlock your Mac in an instant. Use Apple Pay to make secure online purchases. Quickly access system settings and locked notes. And even switch between users - all with the touch of a finger.
Display & Audio - Easy On the Eyes, Music To Your Ears
The Retina display in MacBook Pro features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide color for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And this 13.3" model with the Touch Bar features True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro also has beautifully balanced, high‑fidelity sound that takes listening to higher levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for increased boom. The speakers are connected directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification, so you can mix a track on the fly, edit video on location, or enjoy a movie on the go.
Keyboard and Trackpad - Your Workspace Just Got Quieter
The MacBook Pro keyboard features a butterfly mechanism - providing more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. This 13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar now features a keyboard with a quieter typing experience, and the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.

    Apple MacBook Pro Reviews

    13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Mid 2018, Space Gray) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Learning experience I wanted to replace my 2015 dual core with for gigs of ram to get a faster quad core with 8 gigs for improved performance and speed. I learned that with surfing and email their is no major difference even though the older is a 1.7 gigahertz processor and the newer a 2.7. However for graphics and rendering the new pro beats hands down. I see a little difference in the screen going to the Retina display but not a game change. For normal everyday use word processing, email, surfing, photo viewing not worth the cost to go pro. But if you are in to imaging and rendering movies etc. I’d say yes. I was a little disapointed in regular use. B&H exec lent price, shipping and support.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, good price, OK battery I really like this laptop, it is what I needed: an ultra-portable computer with extremely nice built quality, light and presentable in meetings. However, right off the bat I realized the battery is not as good as Apple advertises it, and I don't even do CPU intense tasks... just web browsing, emails, documents editing, simple accounting, etc. So for these tasks I expect it to take me through a work day away from charger. However, getting 8 to 10 hours of straight movie watching and other tasks is definitely out of reach. Overall, I am happy with the machine because it is doing what I expect it to, just getting used to it as I am a first time Mac User.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rediscover Joy of Computing I had been working on a MacBook Pro that was 6 years old and was making work sluggish. I have loved basically every aspect of the 2018 version I am reviewing.  I chose the Pro over the Air to have the processing power for making videos when for most tasks I do the Air would have been sufficient. As a result the battery life is shorter, but I new that was a trade off before I bought the Pro.  I move between tasks quickly and efficiently now, even with multiple apps open. I am a fan of the keyboard now having the silicone membrane protection to keep out dust and debris.  My experience with the website and the purchase through B&H Photo was seamless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! Was replacing an older Macbook Air and the new Pro is lightning fast. Super quick to boot up and the finger unlock feature is great. I read that some people thought the touchbar was gimmicky, but I've found it to be useful for my simple tasks. Glad I didn't buy the 2017 model to save some money. The keyboard is much quieter on the 2018 Pro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new 2018 MacBook Pro! I recently bought this MacBook Pro to replace my 2015 13-inch Pro due to keyboard issues and I couldn't be happier! As a student going to college twice a week, this 2018 MacBook Pro is so light and much more powerful than my 2015 MacBook Pro, thanks to the quad-core Intel Core i5 processor out of the box. I also love using the Touch Bar because it is so useful to me. I was also happy that B&H was having a sale of this MacBook Pro when I bought it. It arrived in just over 2 days, as advertised. Overall, I am very impressed with this new 2018 MacBook Pro because it is a huge upgrade compared to my 2015 13-inch Pro. I recommend this product to anyone looking to buy a brand new Mac laptop due to the thin and light design and the incredibly powerful quad-core Core i5 processor out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, But Everything I expected and more This MacBook Pro is an upgrade for me from a 2011 version which is still going strong actually.  I am glad I upgraded and I am also glad I chose the Touch Bar model.  I was surprised at how useful the Touch bar really is.  It changes based on the app you are using, which keeps all the related commands and shortcuts at your fingertips.  My data is stored in the cloud, so 256GB is more than enough space.  The migration from my old MB Pro was easy.  I suggest you dont migrate everything because its the fastest way to fill up your new disk with junk you have collected over the years. Research the new USB-C ports.  Its a different way of thinking and you will be required to get new dongles or a USB-C hub (suggested).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise! The laptop is very good. It is on the pricier side but the look and feel will leave you wanting for more. No seriously, I just love holding and using this laptop. For an average person, this laptop is perfect. Not everyone needs to edit photos,videos, draw 3D models, or do programming. Dont get me wrong here, this laptop can do all that just not as well as other more expensive laptops out there. Go ahead and buy it, youll be satisfied with it. BnH is amazing too, you get to buy a mac at lower prices and pay no taxes. Thats almost saving like 250 dollars!
