Design & Display.


Apple MacBook Pro 2020 and Apple Macbook Air 2020 are the best laptops form Apple so far. Macbook Pro 13 2020 is all made from aluminum. The Macbook 13 comes with dimensions as clarified:30.41cm x 21.24cm x 1.5cm ( 11.96 in x 8.36 in x 0.61 in ). The device comes with a 720p webcam. The Macbook Pro 13 has the Apple touch bar where you have extra shortcuts that automatically change depending on the application you open. The thickness of the device is 1.5cm and it weighs 1.4Kg  ( 3.1 pounds ).

There is not much to say about the appearance of the new MacBook: it has not changed at all. The same aluminum wedge-shaped case, glossy logo.

Many people love the design of the latest MacBook for its minimalism, and it's hard to argue with that. There are no unnecessary inscriptions and stickers, slots for cooling, and an abundance of connectors. The build quality and materials are the highest. The laptop will look good in five years, if you do not take into account the thick bezels around the screen: they already seem archaic.

The 720p webcam is also obsolete. In the era of telecommuting and video calls, this quality is simply indecent.

In the lower part, the space is used more efficiently. On the sides of the keyboard are stereo speakers, and in front of it is a huge touchpad. The front indent is wide enough for the palms. The keyboard is turned to the user at a slight angle, which also works for the convenience of typing.

There is an audio jack on the right, and two USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort support are placed on the left side. Both support charging, but it would be better if they were spread on different sides, then it would be more convenient to connect the power cable.

As far as display is concerned, The Macbook Pro 13 comes with a 13.3-inch screen with a slimmer design but it could have been better. The screen now occupies more space of the front, but there is no accurate number as to how much it occupies of the front. The screen is IPS Retina Display with a 2560x1600 resolution, but 1680 × 1050, 1440 × 900 and 1024 × 600 pixels are also supported, with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It has 227ppi and the display has a wide P3 color gamut, which makes greens and reds look more realistic than the standard sRGB color space. It also supports True Tone technology for more brightness. The Macbook Pro 13 supports DCL P3 colors for more color accuracy. As of that, the Macbook Pro shows about 25% more colors which will be useful if you are doing video editing. This laptop also has a 500 nits, which will help you work easily in a bright room or in a place with lots of reflections.
Regarding the keyboard, as expected, Apple stopped experimenting with improvements to the butterfly keyboard that was introduced back in 2015 and returned to the proven Magic Keyboard scissor mechanism. But last year's MacBook Pro models received the fourth generation of the "butterfly", but this, apparently, did not particularly help the design - complaints forced to return to the proven solution.
The key travel on the MacBook Pro 13 2020 is only 1mm. There is a TouchBar, which allows you to quickly launch your favorite functions and applications, and the Touch ID sensor provides quick authentication.
This bundle of solutions is aimed at the most productive work.
There are other changes to the MacBook Pro 2020 keyboard. It now has a separate Esc key, which in last year's model was present only on the Touch Bar.
Apple has heard the wishes of users to return a convenient button. The block of arrow keys also began to look different - now it is not rectangular but in the form of an inverted "T" key. Engineers find this arrangement makes it easier to work with tables and games.
The MacBook Pro trackpad has long been a hallmark and a recognized standard. It is large enough to support Force Touch technology for touch recognition and precise cursor control. The trackpad reacts to the force of pressing, supports multitouch gestures.

Through them, you can charge the laptop itself, connect external monitors and transfer data at speeds up to 40 GB / s. At the same time, the ports are symmetrical reversible, so that the cable can be connected from either side. You can connect a wide variety of devices to your MacBook Pro 13 using adapters or cables.
So you don't need a special charger to increase the battery of the MacBook Air, which is nice, but when you need to charge it means you have lost one of these Thunderbolt 3 ports.

Sound System.


The 8th-generation CPU of the MacBook Pro has a single-fan cooling system, while the 10th-generation CPU has a double-fan system with extra heat pipes to provide you with excellent performance while using this laptop. That means your laptop isn't going to heat up easily, all thanks to this double-fan system. Well, now that doesn't mean the 8th- generation processor is not bad. But still the 10th-generation the processor is better.

The audio system built into a compact body sounds incredible! Music can literally fill an entire room. Accurate voice transmission for calls or Siri is provided by three microphones at once.

Battery and charging.


 The MacBook Pro comprises a powerful Li-Po battery with a capacity of 58W for better performance. The USB-C power adapter is capable of delivering 61W of power.

The Pro 13 gives you up to 10 hours on normal use. The battery also can last for 8 and a half hours on watching a 1080p video.

With our battery life test, where we played 1080p video until the battery runs out, MacBook Pro (2020) managed to be shy for only 8 hours. Also, while using MacBook Pro, we found that this year's model lasts about 7 hours, using Apple's own apps and other apps that consume more batteries. This definitely means that a whole work/school day will last, and you can be happy to play videos during long flights, but unless you really reduce the type and number of apps you use and reduce the screen brightness, it won't hit the promised 11 hours.

Conclusion.


Apple squeezed all the juice out of the MacBook Pro in five years. The result is a very powerful compact laptop with a great screen, a new keyboard, and the best touchpad on the market. Corresponding price - 1,99.99 USD for the 1 TB version. However, this is a model for those who are willing to invest such amounts in a working tool.

Should we wait for the next version on ARM? Most likely not, because when you change the architecture, you will need to completely rewrite all the software. As a result, the transition will stretch over several years, and the current MacBook Pro will be relevant throughout that time. What do you think? Do you recommend this laptop?
