MacBook Pro has a tenth-generation quad-core Intel processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz. A brilliant and colorful Retina display with True Tone technology for a more true-to-life viewing experience. A backlit Magic Keyboard and Touch ID. Fast integrated graphics. And the versatile Touch Bar for more ways to be productive. It's Apple's most powerful 13-inch notebook. Pushed even further.
The MacBook Pro 13 is the perfect size and performs fabulously. I plan on using it for my music study as well as for architectural drawing projects and residential design.
I was using a windows based PC my entire career and just retired and bout the MacBook. I am very happy to make the change and adapting quickly to the user friendly operating system that Apple provides.
Overall a very nice & reliable laptop. Only thing I don’t like is that you have to purchase an adaptor separately if you want to plug your phone or usb in. For the price that should have been included...
When my 2012 MacBook Pro died after 8 years of solid service, I knew I wanted another Mac. But I seriously considered going for a desktop as I've gotten into video creation and editing. No need - my new MacBook Pro has 1 TB of onboard storage, and 16 GB of RAM - plus plenty of processing power for churning out videos without a sweat. While I'm usually working at my desk, it's great to know that this workhorse can come along anywhere I need it!
I purchased this computer to replace the HP Spectre 13 inch windows machine. So far I am happy with the new machine. It is quite the switch to move from windows to Mac operating system though. I have it paired with the Apple keyboard and a Logitech mx master 3 mouse and connected a 23 inch monitor for desktop use.
When I worked as a Certified Apple Technician I told myself I would never upgrade to one of these Touch Bar MacBook Pros but my 10 year old MacBook Pro started to slow down and I was tired of upgrading the internals of the machine and decided to just upgrade to a newer MacBook Pro, I got the one that had a bit more power and storage to match the specs of the one I was used to as I use my machine for a lot of multitasking; photo, video, music production, as well as using two operating systems at once almost all the time. So far I haven’t had any frustration with the machine not being capable of doing what I want it to do. Only complaint I have is the complaint I had years ago when they first released a glimpse of these new models and that is the continuous purchases of cable adapters (aka. dongles) so right off the bat I had to spend an extra $100 for an adapter.
I bought this for my daughter to use as she starts her first year of college. She had been using a new iPad and the specs on it weren't allowing her to access all of the sites she needed for class and tests -- lesson learned here to wait and see what remote learning will require during COVID. I was hoping to purchase this on sale, but she needed it too quickly so we took the plunge and are so glad we did. It is extremely fast, has a gorgeous display, and she absolutely loves it. I don't think she's stopped hugging me in appreciation since! Apple made it so easy for her to set up on her own as well, so she was up and running soon after she took it out of the box! With the 1TB storage, she'll be keeping it for the duration of her education, I'm sure, if not longer.
I think the best MacBook to date it’s really nice made some good improvements to it I like how they finally offer the laptop with the one terabyte instead of the 512gb version like I don’t think you should have to pay through iCloud to get a terabyte or two through the app at that point your just spending extra money on an already awesome product so the and the faster processors and adding 16gb of ram is better as well you can I believe they should go more into the online gaming realm. All in all to have a laptop that you can work on and play on with your downtime as well. Great laptop!!!

A:AnswerThere are 2 cooling fans and vents on the back and the sides. Computer is pretty noisy with fans blowing at 3500-4500 most of the time when it is not idling. Even when the CPU is only 70 degrees or so the fans are on and very noticeable.
A:AnswerThe customized models you will have to order directly from Apple, or go to an Apple store. BestBuy carries a stock of the 4 basic models. I will caution you however, at the point you are upgrading to the core i7 model, you should really consider the 16" MBP as it has a better thermal design to handle a more powerful processor, as well as dedicated graphics. at around the same price as you would be paying for the i7 model in the 13" form factor.
