Apple’s MacBook Pro has always been at the top of the list of the best laptops. The latest model Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) is no different than its predecessors but it is definitely much better.

Slim and Sleek Spellbinding Design

It is not just the design of this particular laptop, Apple is an industry leader in creating the best design of electronic products likes smartphones and laptops. As always, Apple manufactured this laptop with aluminum too and did follow the trend of slimmer laptops. The color choice is again the same, Space Gray and Silver. Both of these colors give a classy look to this amazing laptop. The design of MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) is not that different from its predecessors and it will be difficult to differentiate them in one look. As the design of Apple MacBook has always been appreciated so this may be the reason Apple did not make any changes in the design.

Most of the competitor products have thinner bezels than those of MacBook but if you are interested in the great performance of an elegant looking machine then you will not even notice slightly thicker bezels of Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018). Most of the other laptop manufacturers make compromises like fitting the webcam below the display just for the sake of making the bezels thinner but Apple does not compromise on its signature design. To be honest, I am not a fan of webcam placement below the display. This MacBook weighs 4 pounds and its dimensions are 13.8 x 9.5 x 0.6 inches. MacBook Pro is lighter and definitely thinner than its competitors including Microsoft Surface Book 2, 15-inch HP Spectre x360, and Dell XPS 15.

Ports

Apple sets the trends by using new technology and creating bold designs. When it comes to ports, Apple is not sticking to the old traditional ports. This MacBook does not have any USB type-A ports so it is obvious that if you are a USB type-A user and all of your other gadgets require USB type-A then you will have to buy other accessories to connect other devices to this MacBook. MacBook pro only features on Thunderbolt 3 ports. MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) features 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The speed of the Thunderbolt 3 ports is phenomenal. These Thunderbolt ports allow you to connect external monitors as per your requirement and you can connect two external screens simultaneously. So bottom line is that Thunderbolt ports are the future and you might as well get used to them because sooner are later either you will have to use USB type-A accessories to connect your gadgets to MacBook Pro or you will have to upgrade your gadgets too meet the standards of the latest technology.

Astonishing Display

Apple does not compromise on the quality of the display. 15.4-inch display of MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) will definitely blow you away. The display of this MacBook has a 2880 x 1800 resolution which is perfect for watch 4K videos. This astonishing display features Apple’s TrueTone technology. According to Apple, Apple’s TrueTone technology uses advanced multichannel sensors to adjust the color and intensity of the screen. This means that the color intensity of the MacBook’s display will automatically change according to the lighting conditions around you. And it will provide you the best experience while watching movies and videos.

In display comparison, Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch gives a tough competition to its competitor products including Dell XPS 15 and HP Spectre x360. The viewing angles on this display are good and you can easily enjoy this display up to 75 degrees angle. The screen is bright enough to fulfill all your expectations and you cannot wish to have a better screen than this one. However, the display of Microsoft Surface Book 2 is found to be a little better than the display of MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018).

Audio and Graphics

Apple does not compromise on the audio quality either. If you are a music lover and enjoy listening to the music on high volume, you will definitely appreciate Apple’s effort in this area. The speakers are loud enough to fill a large room. The sound does not lack quality. With the perfect bass and no scattering of sound, the speakers of MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) are perfectly enjoyable.

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch comes with AMD Radeon Pro 560X GPU. The memory of 4GB is enough but not as good as one might expect. This MacBook lacks in this area as a competitor product like Dell XPS 15 performs much better in this area. Although this MacBook has got the best screen to enjoy games if you are a pro gamer and enjoy playing high-end games than the internal graphics of MacBook Pro 15-inch are not enough. Slightly normal games, which do not require top-notch graphics support, run perfectly on this MacBook.

Touchpad, Touch Bar, and Keyboard

The touchpad on this MacBook is great with the dimensions of 6.3 x 3.9 inches. Getting used to such a touchpad is not that difficult. However, if you are going to use a MacBook for the first time, you will feel that Apple’s touchpad is a little different. However, if you are a user of Windows precision pad, you will not face any difficulty in getting used to this touchpad. The multi-touch commands for swipe and drag & drop also work perfectly and you can easily get used to them.

The touch bar in this MacBook is not a new edition but it has been upgraded. The touch bar on this MacBook has got a T2 chip for added security. T2 chip also enables you to activate Siri through your voice without touch. Adding a touch bar is definitely a good idea as you can reach essential shortcuts with a single touch.

The keyboard features butterfly switch keys. Butterfly switch keys are designed by Apple to make the keyboard more reliable and the mechanism used for these keys is much better than traditional keys. This keyboard is perfect for typing as it is quieter than others which means if you feel irritated by the sound of striking the key, you will not have to worry about that on the keyboard of this MacBook.

Performance and Battery Life

From the base model to the highest model of core i9 processor with 32GB of RAM, the performance of MacBook Pro is mesmerizing. Apple’s SSD storage is much faster and it has no competition. You will not have to worry about the difficulty and complexity of the work, this laptop will get it done. Either you are a graphics designer or a video editor, you can get your work done on this laptop. Complex video editing will require much power which means the top of the line model is the one I would choose to get the job done. Even a lot of apps running in the background, multiple tabs open in the browser, and a high-quality running video does not affect the speed and performance of this laptop. This MacBook definitely beats its competitors when it comes to speed and performance.

The battery of MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) performs really well. The battery lasts a little longer than 10 hours of continuous browsing. Use of heavy software and complexity of work will definitely reduce the battery timing. If you want to test this MacBook to its full potential. With the disabled automatic graphics switching, the battery timing could be low as 5 hours which is still good enough. It is normal if the MacBook feels a little warm while you are carrying out a complex work on it.

Conclusion
As this laptop comes with a lot of astounding features. It is true that even the base model is not that affordable. Equipped with the best processor, great display, and good battery life, MacBook Pro 15-inch (2018) starts at $2399 and top of the line model goes as high as $4699. It does not get better than this if you can afford to buy a laptop on these prices
