MacBook Pro Design
The MacBook Pro 15-inches looks a lot like its predecessor in terms of design which is somehow good and bad. On the positive side, an aluminum design makes you feel solid, whereas Touch ID button makes it a cinch to log in with a touch of your fingers. The speakers sound full and rich without any distortion at top volume.
Keyboard – Quieter and Durable
Without a doubt, a keyboard is the most controversial aspect of Apple’s modern MacBook Pro. The keyboard of MacBook Pro 2018’s is quieter and durable, but it should be less susceptible to debris and suck keys. However, the layout is a bit more comfortable as compared to older MacBook Pro.
True Tone Display
Talking about its display, Apple MacBook Pro is well-equipped with 15-inches gorgeous display which doesn’t look any different but True Tone turned on, the display is easier on the eyes. It’s just because the system influences a devoted sensor to vigorously change the white point on the display in order to match the colour temperature in the room.
Apple MacBook Pro Touch Bar
Above the keyboard, the Touch Bar also gets the True Tone treatment to match the main display. The 15-inches display comes in handy at times, i.e. for scrubbing via images with your fingers in the photo app, for using music controls in the Spotify app and picking a favourite site to launch in Safari by touching its icon.
