Reviews for the Apple MacBook Pro 13 2019 i5 4TB3
Apple has provided its beloved MacBook Pro 13 with 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, an updated processor, as well as a revised Butterfly keyboard. But is that enough to keep playing in the subnotebook upper league in 2019?

Overall, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is the Apple laptop I would buy for myself, even with its $1,799 starting price. It gives me all the power I could want, a brilliant display, great audio and an improved keyboard that should prove more reliable over time. I also continue to appreciate such amenities as Touch ID button and "Hey, Siri"

Model: The much anticipated Apple MacBook Pro has finally hit the market and it does not come off as surprising to learn that the premium MacBook Pro model comes in two different size options of either 13 inch or 15 inch. Though both still retain its distinct core features and specifications, there are some minor differences that are worth taking a look into prior to making a purchase of one of the best laptop models to ever grace the industry. The obvious distinction between the Apple MacBook Pro models is none other than its sheer size alone. The Apple MacBook Pro 13 in particular carries a size of 13.3 diagonal inch for its LED-backlit IPS-supported display, which features a native resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 native capping at 227 pixel per inch. These metrics indicate a legitimate testament to the fact that the Apple MacBook Pro 13 is capable of projecting visuals, which would exceed one’s normal expectations. With a high screen resolution and an in-depth focus on pixels attributed from True Tone technology, images and graphics that are presented through the display of the Apple MacBook Pro 13 are bound to amaze a lot of people due to its concentrated attention on details.
Apart from that, the Apple MacBook Pro 13 proudly retains the employment of the revolutionary MacOS Mojave as its operating system to carry out tasks that are duly assigned to the device. Faithful users of MacBooks are not new to what the MacOS Mojave has to offer on the table, but with the latest release of the Apple MacBook Pro series into the market, some upgrades and improvisations are present in order to maintain the standards of Apple as a brand towards the current millennial trend. The new Dark Mode feature which comes with the upgraded macOS Mojave is one of the much requested feature from users across the globe and the Stacks feature is a potential life-saver for administrative tasks as this feature functions to organize files on an automatic basis. Though the Apple MacBook Pro 13 offers tons of improvements and quality-of-life changes into the user’s life, it is somewhat disappointing to see that Apple has once again limited the color variations of their products to a mere Silver and Space Grey blueprints. It is understandable that these professional-oriented colors are true to the signature of Apple products for a very long time, but an additional color variation would certainly create more marketing opportunities especially on this day and age whereby creative millennials are the trendsetters for today’s society.
