Review of Apple MacBook Pro 15 (8th Gen Intel) 2018 Series

Apple Launches the 2018 MacBook Pro 15” non-Touch Bar Laptop With Plenty Of Powerful Upgrades

On July 12 Apple rolled out their latest updates on the MacBook Pro, including a 15-inch non-touch bar variation of the device. MacBook Pro is already one of the most popular notebooks among developers and creative artists across the world and the 2018 updates boost the existing features for 70 percent faster performance. This new device is not just faster, but also comes packed with new pro features marking it out as one of the most advanced Mac notebooks ever.

Design and display

The MacBook Pro has been long applauded for their attractive design which features a slim and light chassis packed with powerful components. The 2018 version of the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch non-Touch Bar is the same design as last year. The 15.4 inch LED-backlit Retina display has a resolution of 2,880x 1,800 pixels. The screen has 500 nits of brightness and combined with the wide colour P3 gamut with True Tone technology the colours seen onscreen are richer with more intensity. Deeper blacks, snowy whites and vibrant colours make watching movies or playing games on the Apple MacBook Pro 2018 15-inch non-Touch Bar notebook an out-of-the-world experience. 

The True Tone technology was first debuted on the iPad Pro and has since then featured on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. This is a welcome technology aimed more towards consumers than professionals. True Tone technology has the ability to sense the ambient light present in the working environment and adjusts the display accordingly so that the image visible is always bright and vibrant. This mode is optional and can be switched off if not needed. This feature is very helpful for those who work with word processing, spreadsheets or coding applications. However, for those whose jobs involve colour accuracies, such as in photo or video editing, then this feature is best turned off.

Apple boasts that the new line of MacBooks come with improved keyboards. The 2018 models retain the chiclet-style keyboards previously seen in MacBooks but has an added silicone membrane that helps to keep keys quite as well as stop dust from interfering with optimum keyboard functions. So, those who love to type fast and intensely will have a better working experience with the new keyboards.

The laptop runs on macOS High Sierra
