Get Ready For A Bite Of All New Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch | 2020 Release

A new 13-ich MacBook pro sooner rather than later. Apple refreshed MacBook air back in march with anew keyboard was only a matter of time before the company did the same with the 13-inch pro. Sure enough Apple unveiled a new model with a magic keyboard design already in use on the Air and 16 -inch MacBook Pro. With that apple’s laptop line-up is completely rid of the controversial butterfly keyboard.

If you are planning to buy 2020 MacBook pro-13-inch apple actually sells 2 very different models of it. On Apple’s website you won’t be able to tell which one is which as they both look identical to each other. But as a matter of fact, these 2 models couldn’t be more different. So, the basic difference between the two is base model starts at 3000$ in USA or 1300 pounds in UK. The high-end model starts at 1800$ in USA or 800 pounds in UK.

Since, you can select a low-end model and then spec it out. So, that’s ends up being more expensive than the high-end model, the easiest way to tell them apart is, by looking at the number of terminal 3 ports that they have. Low end model will always come with 2 thermal three ports while the high-end model will always come with four.

Most people the one with two ports, the baseline is fine but if you are more of a power user and you need to connect it to a 5k monitor, a GPU, a few hard drives, getting that for poor model is something that would definitely be recommended.

Let’s jump into the detailed review.

Keyboard and trackpad

You have basic processor comes with minor upgrades. The 13-inch offers magic keyboard with smooth typing experience. This type of keyboard was offered before 2015. After that, apple switched to a butterfly keyboard which come up with lot of complaints.

But this came up with all new refreshed.

 A Touch ID button

Th 13-inch MacBook pro has a touch bar and touch id. The ESC key is a physical key this time, instead of being integrated. The old versions had ESC key and the touch id integrated into the touch bar.

This is the most amazing and attracting factor with make this MacBook realising alluring as it has Backlit Magic Keyboard with 65 (US) or 66 (ISO) keys including four arrow keys in an inverted‑T arrangement, a Touch Bar, Touch ID sensor and Ambient light sensor which is definitely the icing on the cake.

Apart from this you’ll get a Force Touch trackpad for precise cursor control and pressure‑sensing capabilities which enables Force clicks, accelerators, pressure‑sensitive drawing and Multi‑Touch gestures.

Display and design

The screen size is 13.3 inches and offers a sharp image. The MacBook pro is more powerful and brighter than the MacBook air.

MacBook pro intended for heavy work, but a MacBook Air can be suitable for a college student to use Microsoft office and complete assignments. MacBook pro is very useful for work like Photoshop editing and web developing. MacBook Air is designed for basic use and does not need any upgrade.

Audio and speakers
the new 13-inch MacBook pro has terrific Stereo speakers with high dynamic range. it has Wide stereo sound and also Supports Dolby Atmos playback which is a surround sound technology. Its Studio-quality will also amaze you as it as three-mic array with high signal-to-noise ratio and directional beamforming. don’t forget to take close look on 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Power and performance

Here MacBook pro come with 2 options i.e., MacBook pro 13 and 16. You can go for 16-inch if you need more GPU power and you are a video editor. The 13-inch MacBook pro does not offer dedicated GPU Power and work on system memory. So, I recommend that if you are a video editor, animator or indulge in any 3d related work that 16-inch MacBook pro is your device.

Similarly, 13-inch MacBook pro is perfect for light video editing. Keep in mind, 13-inch can not handle 4K video editing.

Storage

The are two 13-inch models that are from 8th generation. The only difference between two is Storage. One has 256 GB SSD storage while the other 8th generation has 512 GB SSD storage. If you are in need of extra storage then you can always go for buying external hard drives and also help leave you with some extra cash.

The third option is a 10-generation 13-inch MacBook pro which. The 10th generation has 512 GB storage and LPDDRAX memory. So, that’s gives you bigger storage and faster RAM in comparison to 13-inch 8th generation MacBook pro.

Battery and Power

taking about battery and power, it can live Up to 17 hours wireless web and Up to 20 hours Apple TV app movie playback. it has Built-in 58.2-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery and a 61W USB-C Power Adapter.

Ports

MacBook Pro 13-inch - Technical Specifications - Apple (IN)

The major difference is in the ports. The 8th generation has 2 thunderbolt ports, while the 10th generation has four thunderbolt ports.

In all around, 10th generation has more storage, faster RAM, more ports and better speakers. But that doesn’t mean you cannot upgrade the RAM to 16 GB on 8th generation.

The 10th generation also gets better with thermals. It has 2 fans whereas in 8th generation it is only facilitated with 1.

The 10the generation will cost you Rs175000 in India. This concludes that 13-inch base model is definitely not a bad option as Apple’s storage option is on expensive side.

Its overall design is very familiar. You have a headphone port on the right-hand side but we have lacking two additional ports. Apparently, this will be in later models but that is probably my biggest complaint about MacBook. At this point, I could use some more ports. We only have two on the left-hand side. So, you have two but you can expand them with a dock connecting it to the 6k monitor using an OWC thunderbolt 3 dock and that works great for things like memory card readers. Maybe ethernet and additional things like that.

Of course, you have this nice 13-inch form factor and thankfully apple kept the scissor keyboard that they brought back that everyone likes so.

It got good key travel, good feedback. Its fairly quiet and when you are using it,  just much better to use. Anyway, compared to the previous sort of butterfly keyboard, you have that nice large track pad and a pretty nice display.
