Apple MacBook Pro Overview

Found in: Creative Laptops

Experience the innovative interface of the Touch Bar in the mid 2018 space gray 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 2.9 GHz Intel Core i9 six-core processor, 32GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 onboard memory, a 1TB 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 MacBook Pro Reviews

    15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Mid 2018, Space Gray) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Design! First of all they changed from having a magnetized power connection to a small, hard to plugin connection. Magnetized was much easier to plug in and out, and if youre a klutz like me and trip over your power cord it would unplug without taking the computer with it! Also theirs 10 of area along the side of the keyboard for plug in ports, including power. Apple has chosen to put the ports within a fraction of a centimeter next to each out. You need tweezers to surgically remove items to plugged in or out. Really? You couldnt design a port connection just slightly further apart? And finally, Im not doing back flips over the speed. For the price I think you can find better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Machine I use the machine mainly for software development and Im glad I went with the i9. This thing plows through everything. When I was setting it up I used the Intel Power Gadget to check out the temps and how the processor was running, and I think the processor is a work of art. It likes to hang out in the high 3s and low 4s (about 3.8 GHz to 4.3 GHz) using about 30% of the cores available at around 90 degrees. I installed Xcode and Android studio and ran a couple of test projects and noticed I was able to get up and running a lot faster.  I also created a Windows 10 VM with Parallels and installed Visual Studio. This thing definitely installs software faster than anything else I used. I guess that could be attributed to the write speeds as well as the processor.  Since I dont do anything graphics intensive (beside power an external monitor and use emulators and VMs) I didnt think the upgraded graphics card was important, thats likely how I got such a good deal on this machine. I ran Geekbench, and noticed the scores were higher than what was posted (5624 single and 24891 multi) which is insane! I only noticed it thermal throttle once and the thing was ripping, around 4.6 GHz and reached up to about 100 degrees.  Regardless of the throttling, this thing will likely get done whatever it is you need to get done faster than the i7s also available on the MacBook Pros.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premium iMac Performance from a Laptop Published benchmark tests by others indicated multi-processor performance of this MacBook Pro (2.9 GHz i9 6-core, internal flash drive, 32GB memory) to be as good or better than my 2017 iMac (4.2 GHz i7 4-core, internal flash drive, 64GB memory).  Much to my surprise, the real world performance of raw image photo editing with Lightroom seems to agree.  It also appears to have about double the speed in Lightroom of my old MacBook Pro it replaced (15 inch Late 2013, 2.3 GHz i7 4-core, internal flash drive, 16 GB memory).  This, too, appears to correlate to benchmarks published by Geekbench Browser. The function bar set to mimic function keys retains the familiarity and operability of prior keyboards and the larger touch pad was a welcomed improvement.  If combined with nice dock and displays, it could virtually replace my use of the iMac.  The throttling of performance noted by others in early releases seems to no longer exist, at least for my use.
