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 internals bring a welcome boost. However, the lack of port variety stops it from being a truly versatile prosumer device.

Model: 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.
