With an expanded Retina screen, redesigned keyboard and the best audio equipment ever installed in an Apple laptop, the 16” MacBook Pro is designed to meet your professional needs no matter where you go. Musicians and visual artists are accustomed to settling for less capable computers for the sake of portability, which puts a limit on their creativity when traveling or working remotely. This upgraded MacBook Pro seeks to end that problem, making no compromises in battery life, processing, graphics, hardware and storage.
Create anywhere, no compromises
This 16” model laptop computer includes a 2.6GHz 6-core Intel Core i7 processor, making it powerful enough to run professional software like the Adobe creative suite and music engineering software like Logic Pro. The improved cooling system lets the MacBook run these programs faster than ever without overheating, so you can comfortably work on your projects from a tour van, airline seat, couch or wherever else life takes you. The 100-Wh lithium-polymer battery offers up to 11 hours of use per charge—no more searching for an outlet at the venue.
For visual artists and gamers, this MacBook includes an advanced AMD Radeon Pro 5300M graphics card that lets you edit large 4K video files, export photos from Photoshop, and play high-end video games.
For musicians, this laptop features a revolutionary audio system with six built-in speakers, plus intelligent woofers that cancel out rattling. The three-mic array is powerful enough to record quick demos on the go, and you can engineer and edit those recordings easily with the included GarageBand software, or use professional solutions like ProTools or Apple’s Logic Pro software. And you can store recordings with a massive 512GB of storage.
Next-level hardware that the pros demand
The 16” screen is the biggest ever in an Apple laptop, but it’s more than just a size upgrade. This 3072x1920 resolution Retina display features an LED-powered backlight, P3 wide color gamut, 500 nits of brightness and 226 pixels per inch, giving you sharp, true-to-life images and video. The macOS software also allows you to magnify the resolution. TrueTone technology automatically adjusts your display based on the environment.
The redesigned “scissor” keyboard is more comfortable to type on than other recent MacBooks, with increased reliability and easy replacement of keys if needed. Along the top is the Touch Bar, a touchscreen strip of buttons that change based on which app you’re using, so you can work in complex programs with ease. To the right of the Touch Bar is a fingerprint reader that lets you turn on the MacBook and unlock it, all with one press. Below the keyboard, Apple’s industry-leading Force Touch trackpad is large and responsive.
And for hardware accessories, this model includes four Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports capable of charging the computer or connecting to peripherals, including musical equipment, displays, hard drives and more. With the right combination of recording equipment, cables and adapters, this laptop lets you carry the brain of a recording studio in your backpack.
