The differences in short
Before I give the run down of the new specifications, you might be curious to find out what the differences are between the MacBook Pro Touch Bar (2019) and its predecessor, the MacBook Pro Touch Bar (2018). The most important differences:
- the new Intel Core processors of the 8th and 9th generation.
- a new model with 8 cores; this is the most powerful MacBook ever.
- an updated keyboard.
Powerful, more powerful, most powerful
The biggest differences are in terms of power. Apple has added Intel Core processors of the 8th and 9th generation to the MacBook Pro Touch Bar. The 13-inch model is equipped with 4 cores and the 15-inch model has 6 or even 8 cores. The 8-core is the most powerful MacBook ever. This model performs 2 times faster than a Quad-Core and 40% more performance than a 6-core processor. This makes it the ideal MacBook for music producers, photographers, 3D designers, developers, scientists, and video editors.
The keyboard of the MacBook Pro Touch Bar (2019) is still 3th generation, but it's an improved generation. Thanks to the new materials used, the new keyboard reduces problems of any previous generations. Think, for example, of double letters or keys that don't respond well. The updated keyboard with butterfly mechanism has more stable keys and allows you to type more silently. This way, you won't bother anyone with your typing anymore.
Apart from the MacBook Pro Touch Bar having more power and an improved keyboard, it has many more specs. They're not new specs, but that doesn't mean they're not important. The MacBook has the best notebook screen ever: a clear Retina Display with 500 nits brightness. On top of that, it's equipped with powerful stereo speakers, perfect for listening to music and watching movies. You can unlock the MacBook Pro with Touch ID and the Apple T2 Security chip ensures your documents are better secured. In addition, you have 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports at your disposal for data transfer, charging, and video output.
