MacBook Pro 2019 Features, Specs: Performance Boost Decent but Falls Short of Apple Promise
It would seem that Apple has been experiencing a ton of stumbles recently, especially with regards to promises that they make regarding their products. Regarding the MacBook Pro 2019, it has a chance to finally redeem itself of the many issues plaguing it. However, based on recent tests, it would seem that the Cupertino firm has once again failed to meet the expectations that it itself had set.
One of the bigger setbacks that Apple has experienced lately is the matter of its latest MacBook Pro laptops having faulty keyboards. The company has since promised that it would be launching initiatives to fix existing issues and prevent them from happening with the MacBook Pro 2019, CNET reports. However, it is telling that this became a problem, to begin with.
As for what fans can expect from the MacBook Pro 2019, benchmarks have concluded that there are marked improvements with the performance of the newer model compared to the 2018 version. However, it doesn’t really go up to the 40 percent mark that Apple promised. At best, it only came up to 29 percent, which is a far cry from what the company led users to expect.
Of course, Apple is not the only company to overpromise features that inevitably came with certain caveats. In the case of the MacBook Pro 2019, for example, it would seem that the promised maximum performance boost applies only to certain software and activities. In an ideal world, the tech firm would have made this clear, but such is the reality.
Then again, there is no denying that the 8-core MacBook Pro 2019 is a definite improvement over the 2018 version. How much this improvement really matters will depend on how the device is used. To this end, the users themselves will be the real benchmarks as to how well Apple has kept its promise.
