The all new 16" Display


The new 16" Display has everything we loved in the 15" and more.It now comes with a 16/10 aspect ratio instead of a 16/9 which is obviously better in many ways for content consumption purposes.With a resolution of 1372x1920 this new screen can reach up to 429 nits of brightness which is less than some of its competitors in this price range.The true tone display is still as good if not better than the previous generation and is still one of the best screens available on a laptop to date.

The all new "Magic Keyboard"


This new MacBook now comes with an all new "Magic Keyboard" or the scissor mechanism keyboard.After getting a lot of criticism from its users apple finally moved from the butterfly mechanism and revamped the old scissor style keyboard from its predecessors to use in this model.They have a shorter key travel distance and a satisfactory feel to them.Apple also added the esc key by listening to its audience in the editing sector by shrinking the touch bar just a little bit but no one seems to mind it.

The MacBook Pro 16" comes in 2 variants as of now-

  • 2.3GHz 8-core,Core i9 9th gen processor,Radeon Pro 5500M 4Gb GDDR6 Graphics,16GB 2666MHz DDR4 Memory,1TB SSD Storage, for the higher spec variant and
  • 2.6GHz 6 core,Core i7 9th gen processor,Radeon Pro 5300M 4Gb GDDR6 Graphics,16GB 2666MHz DDR4 Memory,512GB SSD Storage,16 inch Retina Display,Touch Bar and Touch ID and 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports for the lower spec variant.

Design and Weight


The Design here is similar to the 15" model with a sleek and stylish aluminium body and an abnormally large touch pad.The Bezels have now shrunken down even more on all sides excluding the top bezel which is larger than the sides and the bottom.

It now weighs a little more than the previous model which is obvious as it packs a larger 100W battery which considerably increases the battery life on these Macbooks.(An 100W battery is the maximum limit of battery supported on a laptop to be carried on a plane.)

Due to a larger overall footprint they can now support even larger fans which help in maintaining the temperature which is far better than the 15" Macbooks.

It is available in two colours Silver and Space Grey.


The new lineup of Macbooks sure are interesting and the new aspect ratio sure is something the laptop industry needs to move toward to.Anyways If I were you I would go for the Core i7 version,they are both available in stores and in Apple's Website.

I will give you a full review after I get my hands on them.

Comment down below which one you want to get.
