Graphics
Eye-opening graphics performance.

MacBook Pro features a Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every 15‑inch model, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And now we’ve paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory standard, giving you fluid, real‑time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X. The 13‑inch model with Touch Bar features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM — twice as much as the previous generation — which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most — creating amazing work.

Apple T2 Security Chip
The next generation of security.

Introducing the Apple T2 Security Chip — second‑generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Pro even more secure. Featured on the 13- and 15‑inch models with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 Security Chip includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one.

SSD Storage
Make quicker work of everything.

MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that’s blazing fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2GB/s. The 15‑inch model is available with up to a 4TB SSD, and the 13‑inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is available with up to a 2TB SSD — enough space to take even your biggest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 Security chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.

Thunderbolt 3
The most powerful and versatile port ever.

Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra‑high bandwidth with the ultra‑versatility of the USB‑C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always right side up.

Up to 40Gb/s data transfer
Charge and provide power from any port
Connects with eGPU
Supports up to two 5K displays

Touch Bar
More ways to be productive. Always within reach.

The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.16 It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a few.

Tap it. Hold it. Flick it. Slide it.
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while watching a movie.

Just what you need.
Right where you need it.
Many of the built-in apps on your MacBook Pro have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you’re using, bringing these shortcuts front and center. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.

Customize what you use most.
You can create shortcuts right in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari, and Final Cut Pro X to help you work faster and be more productive.

Touch ID
Advanced security. Right at your fingertip.
Unlock your Mac in an instant. Quickly access system settings and locked notes. And even switch between users — all with the touch of a finger.

Display and Audio
Easy on the eyes.
Music to your ears.

The Retina display in MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide color for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And the 13- and 15‑inch models with Touch Bar feature True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has beautifully balanced, high‑fidelity sound that takes listening to new levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for maximum boom. And the speakers are connected directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification. So you can mix a track on the fly, edit video on location, or enjoy a movie on the go.

Keyboard and Trackpad
Your workspace just got quieter.

The MacBook Pro keyboard features a butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. The 13- and 15‑inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar now feature a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.

macOS Mojave
Simply powerful.
Featuring Dark Mode, new pro-inspired features, three new apps, and a redesigned Mac App Store.

Great upgrade to an already great laptop

2018 MacBook Pro 15" 2.6GHz I7 6 core, 512GB SSD, 16GB DDR4, 560x graphics, Space Grey

Apple hit it out of the park this year with the inclusion of the 6 core 8th gen Intel processors. Speedier DDR4 memory and insane SSD speeds help as this is 1 of the fastest Mac's you can get, all in a nice portable size with a great screen. The discrete Radeon 560x graphics with 4GB helps with video editing and other tasks. Battery is better than last years models as well.

I originally purchased the 13" 2018 MacBook Pro with i5/512GB SSD/8GB LPDDR3, but quickly found that the screen size was not for me. Its a pound lighter and little smaller, but I don't find carrying the 15" to be bothersome. Apple has done a great job at getting the build quality of these MacBook's down. While the 13" was fast and fluid, the smaller screen size is what ultimately made me switch. Of course the 15" feels snappier and smoother thanks to the 2 extra cores, faster DDR4 memory, and the discrete graphics. Both machines for 2018 are great upgrades over last years model.
