Apple MacBook Pro 13in with Touch Bar (2018) review

 

It looks like a copy and paste of last year's Pro, but this notebook is packed with new tech

More powerful innards ; Keyboard is quieter ; True Tone display is great ; Really nippy SSD

Expensive ; Touch Bar lacks support ; Non-Touch Bar model not (yet?) updated

A strong update to Apple’s 13-inch flagship notebook, not least if you look beyond the surface

MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (13-inch, mid-2018) review

 

A solid improvement

Incredibly quick SSD ; True Tone for non-visual creativity ; Reasonable CPU and GPU boosts ; Quad-core processors with Hyper-Threading

Battery life ; Price is close to two grand

The MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (13-inch, Mid-2018) is a welcome, but mostly straightforward, improvement to a capable laptop.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018) and Blackmagic eGPU review

 

We need the software to catch up, but this pairing might just be that perfect balance of power and portability which creative pros have wanted for ever.

Delivers portability and power ; Fast and capable

Apps likely need to be tweaked to be able to access the eGPU’s power ; A significant investment

As it stands, it may be that the apps you depend on can’t access the eGPU’s power, but the potential here is huge, and at a purely hardware level, this is a wonderfully capable, flexible set-up.

Apple MacBook Pro 13in (2018) review: Perfection, redefined

 

Apple's latest 13in notebook is virtually flawless

Outstanding speed; Longer battery life; Attractive design

Expensive

The 2018 update to the 13in MacBook Pro isn’t just the best MacBook Pro ever, it’s the best laptop ever, too. It’s pricey, but if you can afford it then you won’t regret it.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2018) Review: Actually for Pros

 

Dual-core processors just aren't enough for real professionals anymore. Graphics work, video editing and photo manipulation require more power than ever. And while Apple caught flack for a lack of power in the 13-inch MacBook Pro last year, the...

Apple’s 2018 MacBook Pro refresh offers strong CPU performance and blazing fast SSDs worthy of the Pro name, but it could use longer battery life and is still short on ports.

MacBook Pro review (2018): Apple plays catch-up

 

The 2018 MacBook Pro is precisely the upgrade Mac fans have been waiting for. It's faster, and fixes one of the most common keyboard issues from the last generation, that error-prone keyboard. But the upgrades come a little too late, and Apple is...

Faster than before thanks to 8th gen Intel CPUs ; Better battery life ; Refined keyboard

Still stuck with 4 USB-C ports (get your dongles ready) ; No dedicated graphics on the 13-inch model ; Touch Bar still needs work to truly replace function keys ; PC competition offers more compelling 13-inch laptop hardware

While this latest generation of the MacBook Pro might seem understated, it's a more significant upgrade than last year's, when Apple just added some aging CPUs. These new models are more powerful than ever -- though, if that's your main concern, you...
