A SHORT 1-MINUTE REVIEW
After the release of iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and iPhone SE, Apple is coming up with the most awaited laptop of 2020 that is the MacBook Pro 2020. The MacBook Pro 13” (2020) offers better performance and a lot more power. The laptop looks promising on the paper. Having said that, Apple has certainly dismayed the people hoping to see the 14inch display panel.
A drastic change in the keyword is certainly the best aspect of the new MacBook Pro 2020. A farewell to the not so impressive butterfly keyboard has finally been made which is now replaced with a quality magic keyboard.
The laptop looks indistinguishable to the 2019 model with a millimeter more thickness which is the direct consequence of the replacement of the old butterfly keyboard with the new magic keyboard. The baseline variant of the MacBook Pro 2020 13inch has somewhat thicker bezels in comparison to the present-day laptops.
Other than that, the enormous magic trackpad and the signature lustrous aluminum body is kept alive like in every version of MacBook. The 1.37kgs MacBook Pro 13” is slightly heavier than the prior models although it will not be notable to most of the people.
WHAT DOES THE NEW MACBOOK PRO OFFER?
The baseline model of the MacBook Pro 2020 13inch has 2 thunderbolt ports and 8th generation of i5 processor. Also the baseline variant of the newly released MacBook Pro flaunts the 1.4GHz Quad-Core processor that boosts up to 3.9GHz. The 8gb of LPDDR3 RAM along with 256GB of SSD internal storage will make no shortage of speed and performance. The new magic keyboard has brought the real escape key and set of real inverted arrow keys back into life after 4 years of a long wait.
The retina display with 2560 X 1600 pixels produces sharp images and texts. Likewise, the true toner feature optimizes the white balance of the screen. While Apple has always been known for its brilliant camera performance, the use of the same old 720p web-camera is a big let-down. Another hindrance is the less dedicated GPU. However, the MacBook Pro 16 has a prominent GPU that allows you to experience better computing and smoother graphics performance.
The MacBook 13” with 3 microphone array and better thermal design will certainly deliver better than the previous versions. Nonetheless, the MacBook 13” will be a hit in the market chiefly for its graphics. The indulgence of intel iris plus graphics is a sublime step from apple.
The new MacBook Pro 2020 comes in 2 different sizes of 16inches and the 13inches. Further, the 13inch proffers you to either put your money on the high-end variant, standard one, or the baseline model. The baseline alternative packs the 8th generation of the i5 processor along with a 1.4GHz processor. This model will certainly dominate the market mainly because of its low-price in contrast to the other MacBook pro alternatives.
On the other hand, if you are not satisfied with the 256GB of internal storage and are comfortable to spend $200 more for the elevated change then the standard version will go good for you. The standard version includes the 1.4GHz processor and the 8th generation of the i5 processor. However, the increase of $200 is the direct upshot of 512GB of the internal SSD storage.
More to it, if you need exceptionally high specifications then the supreme version of the MacBook pro 13” 2020 will be the best option for you. The high-end version packs the 10th generation of i5, 2GHz quad-core processor that boosts up to 3.8GHz. The device also flaunts 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM with 526GB of SSD internal memory. All the variants come in two different colors: Silver and the well-preferred Space Grey.
MACBOOK PRO 2020 PRICE IN NEPAL
The base model of the MacBook Pro 13” costs Rs.1,93,000 in Nepal which is almost the same price as the 2019 model. The mid-range MacBook Pro (2020) will cost somewhere around Rs.2,30,000 and the high-end variant will be available at around Rs.3,15,000.
