The new Mac Pro is also fast -
My performance review of the baseline 13 inch MacBook Pro that was finally updated for 2019 with a quad-core CPU, TouchBar, T2 chip and while some might look at the 1.4GHz CPU and write it off, the performance might surprise you.

The early 2015 13 inch macbook pro had a i5 5287u. This looks like some type of identical performing cpu

I'm still happy with my 2016 15" MBP over that because of the graphics performance, and for the fact it was free (thanks eBay). Kickass to see Macs getting better value for money, though.

HI Jonathan. Thank you for the video. I am wondering is 16GB memory is gonna make big difference than having 8GB memory ? thank you again.

would you recommend this one or the one with 4 usbc port ?

Why nobody report the matter with Apple T2 chip freezes,crashes,reboots with the bridge os errors.
That was super helpful! Was a little on the fence with regards to buying the new 13 inch but I am now convinced. Keep 'em coming bro!

Excellent - So surprising to see it performing real world tasks - Just went & bought one, it's very smooth & fast.
Many thanks......all the way from London !

Do you recommend the new mac over the xps , hp spectra ,
But 128gb is a joke. With 256gb it would be perfect and a no brainer to buy this over the other models. And more than 200$ more for 128gb additional is really disrespectful.

Hi friends, is 8ram enough for video editing and coding? Probably wouldn’t go up to 4K and I wonder if I should upgrade the ram or ssd for the basic model

Such Mack book is it
Speed does not matters man , after all it would be 1-2 second . Display & Battery matters

Is 8GB of RAM Enough In 2018? The Cheapest 13” MacBook Pro is Actually 1 day ago   08:06

The commonly held wisdom is that you can get by with 8GB of RAM, but with how much Chrome and Windows 10 use does this still hold up in 2018?
