Touch Bar was a mistake. I saw a guy on the train with a 2018 MacBook Pro. His Touch Bar screen was stripped, leaving only exposed underparts. He couldn’t care less.

For a boss its best to have Macbook or Macbook Air, i now manage my own company but went for 13” top spec macbook pro since i dont need to bring it often, if i had use for more meeting and presentation use i would have preferred the 12” Macbook.
I see from the comments here that none if you have relevant work experience so hope my post give you an idea of the real life in business.

An older mac mini with slower cpu and less ram but with ssd is much faster, in fact i say extremely fast compared to what youre used to. No macs work well with regular hdd.

Stopped reading at AMD GPU. When will we get Apple GPU! I just gave away a stack of laptops with broken AMD Gpus, this insanity has to stop, high end laptops should last much much longer, and they do when they dont have AMD graphics.

updates on the OS is not done on a staggered basis. the simplest way to put it, it just works, it really just work even if it is already an old model

I'm asking if this is the most powerful laptop since everyone seems to choose them for a working environment and beyond. Every time there is a leak of a phone in a subway or a picture of an office meeting I see a MacBook

Takes a lot of courage to build a 16" laptop.
I wish Dell, HP, Lenovo had the foresight to build anything larger than 15".
Apple is a real leader.

surprising move.. dropped the 15 incher, and move to 16 inch.

I guess this time we cannot make complains really... the price it self it's very great for a new machine as that.

And dears... 64Gb of RAM for a laptop and a starting storage space of 512Gb.


Nice one.

MacBook Pros are used by Bosses and higher ups. It can run and monitor all its underlings, with style and power, reach their offices and dock with massive screens. But mostly use the 13 inches, as its more portable.

Its not target at gamers, no 144hz, no gtx, no internal expension, no flashy lights. So students .. (Who we all know games) have no desire for this class of device.

Sure Macbook Air / Macbook Pros can attach external GPU and daisy chain a 144hz monitor to achieve great gaming.. that solution is very expensive and not practical for the average joe.

So technically not because there are are RTX 2070, 2080 laptops but the 16" MacBook Pro will likely be the fastest laptop that isn't extremely bulky and doesn't scream "look at me and my 1000x RGB LEDs! I am a gamer".

But at the same time yeah because it's the fastest laptop that doesn't look like a Christmas tree, is relatively portable and has a decent battery life.
