80% Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch review: bigger and better than ever
Source: T3 English
Though the Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch is edged out by other machines on pure specs, Apple’s appeal has always been about the whole package, which is excellent here – and it fixes the keyboard issues that overshadowed its predecessors.

100% Apple MacBook Pro 16in (2019) review

For many Stuff readers, that positions this particular MacBook Pro as a curiosity or a slice of unnecessary bling. If you’re wrestling daily with high-end creative or development work, it’s excellent. If not, it’s sheer overkill. But even if you’re better suited to a cheaper Mac, be glad this one exists, because soon the technology within will filter down to the rest of Apple’s line – and that really will feel like a revolution.

Apple MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) review: A brilliant big-screen powerhouse
Source: Pocket Lint English
Apple has produced a monster of a machine that is capable of doing pretty much any task you could throw at it. And if you've struggled with recent MacBook models then, rest assured, the 16-inch is like an apology for all their wrongs. The 16-inch screen is bright, crisp, and huge (although not 4K), while the new keyboard is a joy to type on – finally, welcome back to the older scissor mechanism. Our only concern is that all this power and performance comes with a battery that you'll probably struggle to get you through a long day of work on the go, especially if you start to use power apps like Photoshop or Logic Pro. If you need your office on the go and don't mind being too far from a power outlet, however, then this machine is hard to beat.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro is amazing, but it’s still a Mac [Review]
Source: Cult of Mac English
But in summary, I really like this MacBook Pro. It looks great, it’s fast, and it fits extremely well into your existing ecosystem of Apple products. And, while the Mac is certainly still the workhorse of Apple’s lineup, there are ever more places where the iPad has pulled ahead. One is the superior A-series chipset. Another is the way apps work so well together on iOS. And another is the initial setup process.

90% MacBook Pro review (16-inch, 2019)
Source: Tom's Guide English
The 16-inch MacBook Pro has the keyboard every Apple laptop should have. And I really do hope that Apple brings this keyboard to the 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, as superior ergonomic comfort should not be a premium feature. But that's just the way it is for now. There are plenty of other reasons to splurge on this laptop, including its vivid 16-inch display with narrower bezels, amazing audio system and epic battery life.

90% MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) review

The 16-inch MacBook Pro is the best Apple laptop in years. The Magic keyboard feels a lot more comfortable than any Butterfly MacBook keyboard I’ve tried. I also appreciate the slimmer bezels, sharper display and especially the booming sound. Another key selling point for pros is the nearly 11 hours of battery life, which blows away all of Apple's closest competitors.

Comment

AMD Radeon Pro 5300M: Mobile mid range graphics card based on the Navi 14 chip (RDNA architecture) that should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

16":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


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).


90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
