16 inch MacBook Pro Review: Apple’s Technological Jack of All Trades!

In a recognizable fashion, Apple introduced its brand new 16in MacBook Pro with a bang!
The long-awaited 16in MacBook Pro is the new and improved version of the 15in MacBook Pro, with a few key differences. Instead of using their traditional development methods for the creation of the 16in MacBook Pro, Apple finally decided to put its users’ ideas and suggestions into practice.

The end result? A faster, high-performance laptop, mainly intended for power users in business and industrial sectors.

The 16in MacBook Pro is superb for personal use as well, but with prices varying from €2,699 to €4,199, some customers might find it salty.

Nonetheless, consider this saltiness justified as Apple’s new machine is a technological force to be reckoned with!
Implementing its major improvements in the keyboard, sound system, and battery longevity, the 16in MacBook Pro is a heavyweight technological renaissance.

The Changes that Make a Difference

Without alternating the laptop’s unique design, Apple still incorporated several major changes in terms of size, heaviness, and thickness.
Namely, the new 16in MacBook Pro is 8.6mm wider, 0,7mm thicker, 170g heavier and 5,2mm deeper. Moreover, the 16in MacBook Pro provides several revamped keyboard mechanisms, a super-endurable battery, and a six-speaker sounding system with enhanced microphones and new speaker fronts.

A Remodeled Keyboard

It’s no secret that Apple’s keyboard has been problematic for a number of users, so this time around, the company took a whole new approach in redesigning it. Steering away from its earlier butterfly pattern, the 16in MacBook Pro’s new ‘magic’ keyboard has firmer keys, inverted T-arrangement direction arrows, an independent Touch ID scanner, and ESC key now separately located in the upper left corner.

The Bigger the Screen…

An inch bigger, the 16in MacBook Pro offers a higher-resolution screen, additional lighting settings, and a fancier display.

A Hard-Wearing Battery

With the new 16in MacBook Pro, you will never have to worry about battery life again! The new model has a 100Wh battery, 20% higher than its standard 83.6Wh battery. Ideal for high-gear professional performance, Apple’s new battery will serve you for up to nine hours!
However, even despite the necessary changes, Apple’s 16in MacBook Pro still kept the headphone socket, the four Thunderbolt 3 ports, and its ever-practical trackpad.

The Downfalls
