Apple’s MacBook Pro 16-inch addresses almost every issue that has driven customers crazy for years. The keyboard returns with scissor switches, there’s a whole new thermal cooling system, the Esc key returns and they even surprised us with amazing sound. Apple finally listened to what we wanted and it resulted in the best MacBook Pro we’ve seen in years.
Thanks so much for watching! You can support my independent content at

Thanks for the review, Brian! Funny that your primary microphone has static in the background, and the Macbook's one doesn't haha (sorry for being the person who notices it 😢)

Leave the Touch Bar & Touch pad (size) alone, but change up the design; add a matte black version😎

I highly disagree. DO NOT GET RID OF THE TOUCH BAR. It's AWESOME, and many of us love it. I also love the huge track pad. It comes in handy for many professionals. I have no idea what this dude is talking about.

Great video Mr. Tong. I'm skeptic on getting 32gb Ram, since it's kind of pricey for that single upgrade. Is16gb enough for everyday use? I am an MBA student and will use it considerably. Also, if you can please recommend a good external storage brand for apple computers, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you sir for the do that you do.

the only problem is you can't upgrade the hard drive at some point the ssd is going to wear out and in the trash it goes. that's a bad apple

Apples stated 2.1x faster is comparing it to the quad core previous model, if you go down to the page notes. Being that the last generation already went up to 6 and 8 cores, the differences for the processor are really just the smaller differences from the better cooling. They didn't need to pull a deception like that. The GPU differences can be around there though.
tipoomaster 7 aylar önce
@Brian Tong Oh I'm not dissing your test at all. That's probably where the GPU is coming in. I'm just saying Apple didn't need to pull that on their product page.
Brian Tong

That’s why I did a REAL WORLD test to see how it affects my work flow. It was literally twice as fast as a max spec’d model from last year. Those are results that matter for me.

the large trackpad is the biggest gimmick! I still have yet to ever touch the edge of my 2015 MBP trackpad when trying to move my mouse from side to side... Why the hell would I want to drag my finger 8 inches as opposed 4 to accomplish the same thing?

Apple has become “Sony”, a once dominant, innovative company that now releases mediocre to sub par, overly priced items based on its reputation. A reputation that it has not deserved in decades.

In my opinion my 2013 15" MBP w/retina is still better than the newest 16" MBP. The magnet power connection has prevented my laptop from being yanked off a table multiple times. I have an SD card slot, HDMI out, regular USBs, a headphone jack and a keyboard that works. No need for micro USB adapters to connect my equipment while one of the micro USBs is reserved for power. When the touchpad MBPs came out I bought one but ended up giving it to a family member. Why? In my music studio setup every micro USB port was taken and the keyboard sucked. Apple just isn't listening to the customer on what they want and need. I guess I need the "courage" to ditch all of my other devices that I use regularly.

Thanks for the review. With you on the Facetime camera. Show be at least 1080P so you could use it for a simple talking head clip along with the built in microphone system.

Nah definitely keep the Touch Bar. I use it everyday multiple times. I prefer its dynamic brightness and volume keys implementation. I appreciate the simple calculator operations right above the row of numbers. I like some other app specific functions without requiring to recall key combos such as new safari windows, the various screenshot options etc. very very helpful

Hey Brian, if Apple released a 13-inch equivalent of the 16-inch I could potentially buy one. Food for thought.

There are 4tb ssds available for the razor and ThinkPad extreme x1 they have 2 slots so 8tb for around $1309 or $1000 less than apple charges and you keep your base amount or sell it. 64gb ram is much cheaper than what apple says
Tigerex966 7 aylar önce
Only a little No 4k No oled boxer or xdr mini led No usba no HDMI no sd card No magsafe No digital out or in Soldered ram Soldered memory These are not new things but things apple took away to sell dongles cords adapters and at purchase ram and storage only from apple. Apple fights right to repair Almost all repairs require a full new motherboard by design. Great speakers and track pad and battery life.

Why the hate for the Touch Bar? I understand you may not use it, but many of us enjoy it. As Steve Jobs said with the intro of the iPhone, physical buttons cant adapt to each individual app. Same for the functions, ok, you could configure them, but at least the Touch Bar shows what each function does. You don’t have to memorize each key

Apple only started listening when Jony Ive is nearly out so this means he's the one who prevented Apple from listening, almost like a toxic partner they had to let go ! The guy was obsessed with thinness almost to the detriment of actual use of a product ,the latest being the keyboard fiasco ! Now the ugly notch days are also numbered and battery life will improve greatly everywhere considering the thinness will not be an obsession anymore ! And You're absolutely right Brian the Touch bar is just a gimmick and nothing more !

I think you're giving Apple a little too much credit, they really didnt change shit…Except the keyboard which was giving them massive problems for warranty repairs aka they listened to their wallet.

Yes touch bar is stupid. For example, I have two press it several times to adjust the sound up and down. It's extra steps. I have the 2018 15 in MacBook Pro and the keys on the keyboard ARE too thin. So are the keys on the current Mac wireless keyboard.

Just got mine today. So far so good. I got the high end stock one. The screen doesn't feel much bigger. The keyboard is night and day different and the speakers are crazy for a laptop. don't get rid of the Touch Bar I really don't use it but I love to look down and see it. Looks futuristic.

The Touch Bar tries to make more use of the space infrequently used keys takes up top (Function Keys).. It's supposed to be like an "add-on" or "extension" from the purpose the Function Keys are already providing. It can provide what the traditional Function Keys do, no? I don't get why people keep complaining about this.. Am I missing something? Am I mistaken to think people are unwittingly complaining about an already existing feature, they "don't use that much" even before Touch Bar's existence, i.e. the Function Keys / Row?

@Brian Tong The two step thing I think can actually be done with one, hold and drag? The freezing and whatnot is obviously a need to be fixed.
Brian Tong

When it takes two steps to adjust brightness AND volume, because of the Touch Bar and sometimes it’s freezes on you and stops working and requires a restart.
