Fast, reliable and portable but heavy
Reviewed in India on 3 August 2019
Unlike 2018 models, the Macbook Pro 13 in it latest July 2019 release, covers all its cons which includes a fast quad core i5 processor, touch ID, touch bar which adds a cool factor to otherwise a simple laptop, new design butterfly keyboard which is now more tactile, and more. I was waiting for this release and as soon as it was launched on amazon, I ordered it.
I got the delivery next day which is impressive as the croma store was also taking one day for delivery and was not offering any discount, priman was giving back to school discount of 4.5% but it was asking 4-5 days for delivery.
Regarding the review, you can watch youtube videos on it where they show how fast is this Macbook Pro compared to the previous generations, even faster than some 15 inch ones.
I have been a windows user and one thing I noticed with macOS is that it is simple, straight forward and fast. I heard a lot about the track pad on Macbooks and it was yet a new discovery for me moving from windows. The gestures are very intuitive and easy to adapt. I still use a windows laptop alongside Macbook and its track pad always leaves me wanting for more.
The screen is vibrant and color accurate but not as punchy as an OLED or a 4k display. True tone is a useful feature specially if you use your computer for long hours. Speakers are unmatched and you wont miss you headphones if you forgot to carry them on your trip. One thing i experienced with this Macbook is that it feels heavy compared to its size.
Now the battery is what amazed me. I can't keep my windows laptop and its charger separated for long but this Macbook has crazy long battery life. If you leave your Macbook lid closed overnight, the battery will just drop by one or two percent at max.
Overall I paid for an experience and till now I am having a good one. Only thing I feel that 1.34lac is still a high price for this laptop. But hey, the price is an entry barrier and if you like exclusive things then this Macbook is for you.
