What Do We like
The Retina display of the MacBook is one of the best and popular features of Apple. The true tone technology, along with 500 nits brightness, every image and video is shown on display without missing a single detail. The white balance will be changed automatically, detecting the light around you. This will enhance your viewing experience.
This model of MacBook comes with a Radeon Pro 4Gb GDDR5 graphics memory in it. The impressive performance of the integrated graphics will accelerate every task and will help to render 3D images in Final Cut Pro X faster than ever. In spite of this powerful graphics, which also enhances its display, the power efficiency is very good.
The keys of this keyboard in MacBook Pro is very comfortable. The stability of the keys and ability to take pressure is four times more than any ordinary key. This comes with Apple’s butterfly mechanism to provide you comfort as well as to make your typing experience quieter.
Battery back up
The lithium-ion batteries in these MacBook Pro models are very powerful. This will provide you with up to 10 hours of battery life if you are using it for work purposes. This can also provide you 8 hours of video playback time non-stop. Also, it takes only 2.5 hours to charge the battery fully.

These high-performing ram can also be upgraded up to 32GB. The blazing-fast SSD and the eye-opening graphics memory increases the efficiency of the laptop allover.
What We Don’t Like
Lack of storage
This high configuration laptop lacks storage. You will run out of 128GB space very soon, and then you will have to buy storage separately. At this price, the storage should have been at least 256GB.
Apple has always been the leading company in the tech industry. This MacBook proves this from all aspects. The tremendous performance of this laptop is non-comparable to any other. The sleek design, along with the lightweight, makes it more eye-catching because it is easier to carry around. This comes with an Apple warranty for the laptop and accessories as well. The budget maybe a little too high, but if that is not a problem for you, then undoubtedly go for it.
