The mid 2018 15.4″ Apple Macbook Pro Space Grey comes with Touch Bar which places controls right at your fingertips and adapts to different apps to provide useful functions without having to navigate complex menus or memorize keyboard shortcuts. Replacing the function keys in the top row of the keyboard, the Touch Bar features a Retina-quality display and supports multi-touch input.
The power button contains the Touch ID sensor, so you can quickly log into your MacBook Pro using your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID enables a quick, accurate reading of your fingerprint and uses sophisticated algorithms to recognize and match it with the Secure Enclave in the Apple T2 chip with “Hey Siri” functionality.
The Macbook Pro is powered by an 8th Gen Coffee Lake 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 Hexa-Core processor that features a burst speed of up to 4.3 GHz, while 16GB of 2400MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.
Its 15.4″ IPS Retina display features a2880 x 1800 screen resolution. It has LED backlighting with a maximum brightness of 500 nits, and it includes support for the P3 wide color gamut. The AMD Radeon Pro 560X delivers a sharp, clear picture. For long-term storage this MacBook Pro is equipped with a 512GB PCIe SSD. The 802.11ac WiFi is built-in for wireless networking, and Bluetooth 5.0 technology will allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, four Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports, a Force Touch trackpad, a Full-size backlit keyboard, and stereo speakers with double the dynamic range of its predecessor as well as improved bass and even a 3.5mm headphone jack. macOS High Sierra is the installed operating system.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. The multi-touch, Retina-quality display changes automatically based on what you’re doing, from showing traditional system controls, such as volume and brightness, to more directly interacting with or browsing through content. Intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text improve the typing experience, and you’ll be able to customize the Touch Bar to fit your needs.
A Touch ID sensor has been integrated into the power button, so you can quickly log into your account, even when another user is logged in.
Storage wise, it gives you much leeway for storing basic to large-bit files. Packed inside the MacBook Pro is 512GB SSD storage that can shelter hundreds of files for your project and work from MS Office Applications. With its storage allowance, the 512B SSD drive is more than enough for storing files from external devices like pictures, videos, and music.
The 15.4″ Retina Display has a 2880 x 1800 resolution and features brighter LED backlighting than its predecessor as well as an increased contrast ratio, delivering deeper blacks and brighter whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it more power efficient than previous generations. It also supports the P3 color gamut, which allows for more vibrant colors. This ensures true-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, which are essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing.
