Designed for those who defy limits and change the world, the new MacBook Pro is by far the most powerful notebook Apple has ever made. With an immersive 40.6-cm Retina display, super-fast processors, next-generation graphics, the largest battery capacity ever in a MacBook Pro, a new Magic Keyboard and massive storage, it’s the ultimate pro notebook for the ultimate user.
The new MacBook Pro features a stunning 40.6-cm Retina display - the largest Retina display ever in a Mac notebook. It produces 500 nits of brightness for spectacular highlights and bright whites, while delivering deep blacks thanks to the precise photo alignment of liquid crystal molecules. The P3 wide colour gamut offers brilliant, true-to-life images and video. So no matter where you are, you’ll see your work in the best possible light.

The 40.6-cm MacBook Pro brings a whole new class of performance to the notebook. Thanks to a more advanced thermal design, the Intel Core i9 processor with up to 8 cores and 16 threads of processing power sustains higher performance for longer periods of time — and delivers up to 2.1 times the performance of a quad-core MacBook Pro.3 So whether you’re layering dozens of tracks and effects, rendering 3D models or compiling and testing code, you’ll be doing it in no time flat.
More advanced thermal architecture enables faster processing. The thermal architecture in MacBook Pro has been completely redesigned, featuring larger impellers with improved fan blades for optimal airflow and more heat-dispersing fins for more effective cooling. The resulting gain in cooling capacity allows MacBook Pro to deliver up to 12 watts more maximum sustained power.
Up to 64GB of DDR4 memory means more efficient multitasking. The 40.6-cm MacBook Pro uses fast 2666MHz DDR4 memory - up to 64GB - for smooth performance whether you’re loading hundreds of audio samples, editing billion-pixel images or running multiple virtual machines.
faster than 16GB4
The AMD Radeon Pro 5000M seriesgraphics GPU delivers the greatest graphics horsepower ever in a MacBook Pro. The 40.6-cm MacBook Pro base model is over two times faster than the previous-generation base model, for seamless playback and faster rendering of ultra-high-definition video.5 And with the optional 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, you’ll get up to 80% faster performance when executing tasks like colour grading in DaVinci Resolve compared with the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20.6

The 40.6-cm MacBook Pro takes workflow efficiency to a new level. The Magic Keyboard features a refined scissor mechanism with 1-millimetre travel for a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts powerful shortcuts front and centre, and Touch ID provides fast authentication. A dedicated Escape key allows quick switching between modes and views. And the inverted-T arrow keys enable fluid navigation whether you’re flying through lines of code, navigating spreadsheets or gaming.

MacBook Pro has a big voice. The six-speaker sound system produces room-filling wide stereo sound like you’ve never heard from a notebook before. Dual force-cancelling woofers dramatically reduce vibration, adding a half-octave lower range to the bass. And the studio-quality three-mic array rivals professional third-party microphones, for creating super-clean podcasts or music recordings on the go.

The 40.6-cm MacBook Pro has up to 8TB of SSD storage - the most available in any notebook. So you can take your entire photo or video libraries with you no matter where you’re headed. And with super-fast speeds, massive files load in an instant and pro apps launch in a blink.

The 40.6-cm MacBook Pro has the highest-capacity battery Apple has ever put in a notebook. The 100-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery not only powers the larger display and delivers higher maximum sustained power, it also provides longer battery life - up to 11 hoursof wireless web browsing and Apple TV app movie playback.8 So you’ll have more time to work between charges - whether you’re on or off the grid.

Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip - second-generation custom Mac silicon designed to make everything you do even more secure. It includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller and SSD controller, into one.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra‑high bandwidth with the ultra‑versatility of the USB‑C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40GB/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. MacBook Pro 40.6-cm is equipped with four ports, so you can do all that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always right side up.
