Hey, what’s up we’re going to be Unboxing & Review the brand-new MacBook Pro 16 inch from Apple that was just released today Friday, November 15, 2019, now this laptop replaces the previous 15-inch MacBook Pro model in apples.
Lineup and that means it also starts at the exact same $2399 dollars before tax also Apple has introduced a number of brand new and welcomed improvements here besides just increasing the display size to 16 inches in the exact same form factor additionally the base storage configuration is actually 512 gigs now and Apple has reinvented the keyboard or at least so they say they’ve basically gone backward and regressed back to using the previous scissor mechanism . the laptop insane twenty-four hundred dollars just to go from the base 512 Gigs of SSD storage up to that eight terabytes that.
I just mentioned also this thing is configurable with up to 8 Gigabytes of gddr5 memory 64 Gigs of ram. which will cost you $800 which is insane of course none of this is user upgradeable whatsoever it’s all soldered to the logic board and an Eight-core ninth Generation intel core I 9 processor with turbo boost up to 5 gigs. So let’s start with the box itself on the front we actually just have a picture of the MacBook itself opened with that screen in all of its glory the sides simply have Apple logos or as the top and bottom same MacBook Pro and on the back we just have the specifications for this 16 inch MacBook pro and that is 16 inches measuring diagonally .
And it’s the same retina LED-backlit display with true tone technology and a resolution of 3072 by 1920 this one has that base 2.6 gigahertz six-core intel core i7 with 12 megabytes of shared l3 cache and turbo boost up to 4.5 gigahertz 16 gigabytes of 26 66 megahertz ddr4 memory 512 gigabytes of PCIe-based flash storage for that SSD an AMD Radeon Pro 5300 M with 4 gigabytes of gddr5 4 Thunderbolt 3 USB type-c ports with support for high-speed IO and video out of course this still has the same headphone jack. It has a touch bar with touch ID now the two are separate it has that dedicated Escape key as. it has 802 11 AC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 , the same FaceTime HD camera. It’s pre-installed with Mac OS obviously and this one is a tad bit heavier than its predecessor coming in at 4.3 pounds just like with all of Apple’s latest
So at the bottom we have our USB type-c 2 USB type-c cable this is what you’re going to use for data transfer and charging purposes, of course, you might still need to buy USB type-c adapters if you were existing peripherals our USB a but at this point apples been shipping USB C with their laptop since 2015 .So that’s no shock now up at the top you do have this pamphlet that says designed by Apple in California. .So Apple did increase that and this thing should give you a faster charge. The MacBook Pro 16 inch itself should have comparable life to its predecessor as well Apple is actually quoting an additional hour of usage there all right now. this model is that the touch ID sensor is actually separate from the touch bar.
The keyboard now is fixed MacBook Pro 16 inch is looking back to the past to do that and they’ve reverted back to the previous scissor mechanism. Here and because of this that the keys are raised up quite a bit more and they also do actually have more travel. They have a more tactile feel they’re more responsive they’re not as mushy and, I really do love this change. That they say will rival USB microphones for things like podcasts aside from like I said though the keyboard the touch bar touch ID sensor and obviously the larger display that we have right here everything else is virtually identical. you will love machine it looks and feels incredible it’s just everything that the Apple MacBook Pro 16 inch.
