Apple today officially debuts the new 16-inch MacBook Pro. Packing a new magic keyboard, new configuration options, and more, the 16-inch MacBook Pro serves as a replacement for the 15-inch model. Now Available from $ 2399 – Buy?
The biggest change to the new 16-inch MacBook Pro is the keyboard. Apple refers to the new keyboard as the Magic Keyboard, which means it will be similar to the standalone wireless keyboards it sells for use with the iMac and Mac mini.
The new Magic Keyboard offers a physical Escape key and an inverted T arrow key layout, as well as a Touch Bar with a standalone Touch ID and power button. Apple says the new keyboard features an Apple rubber dome design with 1mm movement and a more stable feel. Of course, many customers will just be happy to say goodbye to the awkward and unreliable butterfly keyboard design.
In terms of prices, the 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $ 2,399. So you get a 2.6-HHz 9th-generation Intel i7 6-core processor, AMD graphics, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD. The machine can be configured up to over $ 6,000, with options such as 64GB RAM, 8TB SSD, and an 8-core Intel processor.
Personally, I'm very intrigued by the 16-inch MacBook Pro. I'm currently using a MacBook Air 2018, but the keyboard certainly has a fair share of issues and I could use a bit more power and storage while on the go. With that said, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will probably be a little also big for my daily use. I plan to check it out personally after it hits Apple Stores later this week to see if my suspicion is correct.
