We, Will, start with the Design
Same old design with a little thick chassis and little heavy but you cannot find the difference until you have the MacBook Pro 15 to compare with.
When you open up you can get to know what’s the difference between 16 and 15 easily, we got a dedicated ESC key and a power, fingerprint sensor. Which asked our old bad days disappear but I don’t why they made those arrow keys smaller I ain’t got no complaints but I’m just mentioning.
They said a bump in the body to screen ratio you find bezel thinner only when You have MacBook pro 15 side to side of not you feel it same. There is an increase of 2 pixels in pixel density max screen brightness is 500nits like it was earlier.
Thank God goodbye to the butterfly mechanism they Gave us back the scissor tech back for all the complaints on the butterfly mechanism Webcam 720p as usual.
And with the internal design, they claim an increase in heat sink Caused 28% better airflow I don’t know about the number perfectly but I found MacBook pro 16 Has good thermals. I didn’t mention trackpad and all-cause you know the standards already.
The MacBook Pro 16 has a 16-inch Retina Display, with LED-backlit display with IPS technology, or simply saying it’s an
IPS-LCD display, a native display resolution of 3072X1920, however it can also support lower resolution also if you want it, a pixel density of 226 PPI, base refresh rate of 60hZ but can be lowered down, options include 47.95Hz, 48.00Hz, 50.00Hz, 59.94Hz, 60.00Hz, and it can also reach a max brightness of 500 nits
The overall screen quality is one of the best available out there
The base variant comes with 2.6GHz 6-core 9th-generation Intel Core i7 processor Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz and AMD Radeon Pro 5300M with 4GB of GDDR6 memory and the highest model comes with 2.3GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz and with AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with 4GB of GDDR6 memory.
It handles the creative jobs pretty good it does run 3d modelling but I don’t recommend MacBook Pro 16 if you’re only on to 3d modelling
Its a much better option for a music producer, photo & video editors and content creators, Copywriters and alike
The base model has 16GB of 2666MHz DDR4 onboard memory which can be configured up to 64GB
in the base variant, you gets a 512GB SSD, but it can be configured up to 8TB, so seriously you can easily move around all your studio data if you want
There is a 100 watt-hours battery on the MacBook Pro 16, and it is literally the largest amount of battery wattage one can take on the flight, the battery life is great and will easily last for around 6 to 7 hours in moderate usage
The audio is so good that even if you forget to bring your headphones, you won’t miss it, as the speakers are of that level, the audio volume, quality and vocal are amazing, can easily be said to be the best speakers on laptop out there, and with the Force cancelling woofers, you won’t feel the laptop vibrating at higher volumes which were generally a problem for laptops with large speakers
- A High-fidelity six‑speaker system with force‑cancelling woofers
- Wide stereo sound
- Support for Dolby Atmos playback
- Studio‑quality three-mic array with high signal-to-noise ratio and directional beamforming
- 3.5mm headphone jack
in India, the base model starts at around 2,00,000 INR
international pricing starts at around 2300$
The MacBook Pro 16 is a great upgrade to the MacBook Pro 15 and the performance increase is also highly significant,
it a great buy if you are into content creation, copywriting and alike, but won’t recommend it for AAA titles and games which require high refresh rate
