The fact is that this laptop hasn’t changed a great deal since 2018 though. You could wait another year and keep your fingers crossed that a new even better MacBook Pro is on the way (rumour has it a 16in model with a 4K display is in the pipeline). Or you could find a deal on one of the 2018 models and save a bit of money on a similarly speced machine - just make sure that it is as good deal.

Simply put, the 2019 15-inch MacBook Pro is blindingly fast, with beefy 9th Gen Core i9 performance and SSD speeds that give the competition whiplash. On the downside, the MacBook Pro has spent a few too many years with the same look, and arguably far more time with the Butterfly-key switch than it should. The improvements in this year's Butterfly mechanism at least sound promising. Plus you get a great display, powerful audio and long battery life.

It’s unfortunate that the MacBook Pro (and the MacBook and MacBook Air) continue to be plagued by the keyboard-related issues. It’s unlikely that you will be affected by this issue though, and should you be, Apple will fix the problem for free but you may not be willing to take that risk.

Thanks in part to its Intel Core i9 CPU option, the sleek 2019 reboot of the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro we tested is one of the most powerful laptops you can buy for multimedia editing, data analysis, and other similar tasks. We'd just like to see some bolder design moves in the next model.

Apple MacBook Pro 15 2019, i9 560X

Apple fans are bound to rejoice upon the announcement of the Apple MacBook Pro 15 in the year of 2019. The updated, sharp and powerful Apple MacBook Pro 15 is making its way to you with 9th generation Intel processors, making it the fastest MacBooks to be ever created thus far. Along with fast processors, this MacBook model also offers all-day battery life. The Apple MacBook Pro 15 is considered to be for avid music lovers. This is due to the fact that the device itself is more than capable of bringing out the best sound from sturdy, bumping bass of any music played on. Tests and demonstrations have presented a consistent record of music being able to be heard from outside of a enclosed four-walled chamber whereby the Apple MacBook Pro 15 is being placed within. This indicates that the Apple MacBook Pro 15 is capable of projecting a high-volume capacity, which is suitable to be used in closed quarters or secluded environments such as a studio room for educational or mere leisure purposes. Work productivity has been a recurring focal point for Apple as a premium brand company to work their way around in order to ensure their products are capable of improving their user’s quality of life. With dozens of Google Chrome tabs, YouTube videos running at 1080p definition, and several Microsoft Office PowerPoint launched on a split screen, the Apple MacBook Pro 15 impressively runs with zero stutters or lags. The 9th generation Intel Core i9-9980HK processor and 32 GB of RAM allow a multitude of programs to run all at the same time with ample space. At present, the MacBook Pro ships with macOS Mojave, which is not an entirely thrilling update. However, the newly most promoted feature, the Dark Mode, will be available through iOS in this coming fall season. Favorable features of the Apple MacBook Pro 15 that are to be expected to come this fall would include Continuity Camera and Quick Actions. In addition, macOS Catalina will bring iPad apps to MacOS with Project Catalyst, which give iPad owners the ability to extend their desktops. Overall, the 2019 15-inch MacBook Pro is fast with 9th generation Intel Core i9 performance, better Retina display, booming amazing sound and longer battery life making it the best laptop around. However, the downside of the MacBook Pro 15 is that Apple tends to stick with the same look for many years. Despite that, you still can get the all-powerful performance laptop with classic look of Apple design. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Once again, with the MacBook Pro 2019 refreshes, Apple has built a well-designed professional laptop with the MacBook Pro 15-inch (2019). Its upgraded internal components bring a welcome boost. However, the lack of port variety stops it from being a truly flexible prosumer device.

Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro review: hands-on with the first new MBP size since 2006
Source: Digital Arts English
The 16-inch MacBook Pro is, unsurprisingly, the best Mac laptop to date. Based on 24 hours experience, I’d say that if you bought either the 2018 or 2019 15-inch model, there’s little reason to upgrade yet – but if you’ve been hanging on, this could the moment to invest in a new MacBook Pro. But for a definite answer, wait for our full review with complete benchmarks including a battery test.

The MacBook Pro 15 2019 is also available with the Intel Core i9-9980HK. However, the cooling system is already at its limits with the smaller processors, so the upgrade is hardly worth it. The GPU upgrade to the Radeon Pro Vega 20 from AMD on the other hand makes more sense.

Comment

Apple: Apple Inc. is an American multinational corporation which designs and manufactures consumer electronics and software products. Apple software includes the Mac OS X operating system but nowadays Macbooks are also able to run Windows. Apple has at least sporadically been considered the most valuable company in the world since 2011 and has consistently ranked among the Top 10 companies in the world.

In the laptop sector, Apple's market share was 9.3% in 2014 and 10.3% in 2016. The latter corresponds to the 5th place. In the smartphone segment, Apple achieved 15.3% in the first quarter of 2016, which means a market share loss when compared to the 18.3% in same quarter of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Apple ranked second place behind Samsung in both years.

There are tons of reviews on Apple laptops, smartphones and tablets. The ratings are significantly above-average (as of 2016).
