Engadget Review

The 2018 MacBook Pro is precisely the upgrade Mac fans have been waiting for. It’s faster, and fixes one of the most common keyboard issues from the last generation, that error-prone keyboard.

Pros
  • Faster than before thanks to 8th gen Intel CPUs
  • Better battery life
  • Refined keyboard
Cons
  • Still stuck with 4 USB-C ports (get your dongles ready)
  • No dedicated graphics on the 13-inch model
  • Touch Bar still needs work to truly replace function keys
  • PC competition offers more compelling 13-inch laptop hardware
