    Lack of upgradability aside, this thing is awesome. Once this goes in the refurbished store, probably one of the best 13" ultrabooks you can buy. Thermals are just 👌. What do you think of this refresh?

      raghav gupta they all have slower nvme m.2 drives, so whether they are using Toshiba instead of Samsung ssd it's the main downside if you move massive files often

            Yeah, I reckon it'd be more than enough. Most programming really doesn't need that much power anyway. Unless of course you went into game design or something of that nature.

                Pedro Jorge My Mac book 13” 2019 was only a day old.
                I allowed my daughter to play mincraft on it.
                It went super hot within 15 of playing.
                That’s kind of hotness is not normal.
                It’s totally crap for gaming.

                Also I noticed the MacBook shuts completely off when the battery reaches 30%

                My MacBook is only 5 days old.

                The model I have has only one fan,

              RAM upgrade, no way? From 8 to 16GB?

              • Emperor TV, 임페리어TV의 GAME Factory

                Hey there, Infinity Labs. I have a mid 2014 Mac book pro basic model with 128 gb. I was considering to buy a MacBook Pro 13 inch basis model or upgrade for memory and 256 gb because I am a Engineering student and starting the major about it at Fall 2019. I will have $300 discount because I have the 2014 mid MacBook Pro. In this case, do you recommend me having a Mac book pro 13 inch 1.4 i5 with 16GB memory, 256 SSD storage? And for game's I just play Minecraft, but it was getting slow at 2014 MacBook Pro. What do you think about this option?

                              @Infinity Labs Everyone says this but I just upgraded from a 5 year old 128 gb MacBook Air and it still had about 50 gb left on it (used it through out university and I didn't have any external storage). It's really about what you're doing with the computer and how you manage your storage. This time around I got the 128 gb 2019 MacBook Pro and opted to buy a 1 Tb external hard drive to store any photos/videos and larger projects. The external hard drive only cost me about $60 CAD compared to what apple would have charged for upgrading the storage on the computer itself. If you're using the computer for mainly browsing and small assignments then you can probably get away with doing the same thing.

                              Never. I always recommend getting 256GB at minimum because system files, app data, your downloads and whatever else piles up and after a while you’ll constantly be deleting files trying to make room for new files.

                            Great video. You got a new subscriber. 😊 I am looking for a computer for my school. I will do video editing, photo editing, graphics, on Premiere Pro, Illustrator, Photoshop etc. Do you recommend 1.4GHz or 2.4GHz Macbook Pro? Is there a huge difference in performance? I can afford 16GB ram and 256GB SSD with 1.4GHz, but only 8GB ram with 2.4GHz. Thanks.

                              I would ignore the CPU upgrade and go for the 256GB SSD and 16GB RAM. The actual performance between the 1.4GHz and 2.4GHz CPUs is almost nil because the 1.4GHz CPU will turbo up to roughly the same speeds as the faster ones. You'd be paying a couple hundred bucks for a ~5% improvement, not exactly worth. Extra RAM will help much more with Premiere and Photoshop if you edit a bunch of raw photos.

                            Do you think we should buy mac pro 2019 rather than
                            2018 ( pls give me an advide )

                              Mac Pro is a desktop. If you mean this laptop, there are two versions. This is the cheaper one with a 15w CPU and two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and the previous model was updated in 2017. The only 13" MacBook Pro in 2018 was the one with four Thunderbolt 3 ports and a 28w CPU. Depending on if Apple will retrofit the new 2019 keyboards onto the 2018 MacBook Pros, I would probably get the 2018 with four Thunderbolt 3 ports over this new one.

                            does the 8gb ram is enough for photo editing ? do you recommend upgrade the RAM and or the SSD ? or just get the basic model and get third party ssd ?

                                      Yep. In fact, to change the white balance you don't actually need a colorimeter. In System Preferences>Display>Color>Calibrate and you'll have a white balance slider. You'll be relying on your eye rather than a dedicated tool but it's an option you have.

                                      @Infinity Labs Thanks again for the info! It also didn´t seem very yellow to me until i put it side by side with the 4TB model then it was quite obvious. Great it can be calibrated..seems like a good display and laptop in general.

                                      Honestly, I don't know either LOLOL. I believe measured is what the colorimeter (physical display measuring tool) measured, and assumed is what the current display profile says is the white balance. It always seems to be exceptionally high on all laptops so I kinda just ignore it. On this display in particular, the white balance is over 9000 kelvin (very yellow) but the standard white balance for a display is 6500K, yet the screen doesn't look particularly yellow to me. Really strange.

                                      And yes, that can be calibrated. You take a colorimeter and you set what white balance and gamma you want the display to be set to. White balance is just how yellow or blue your display looks if you're wondering, really simple to change.

                                      @Infinity Labs Thank you that was fast! I´m not very knowledgeable about displays so if you don´t mind me asking, the Measured vs. assumed target whitepoint is really high, does it make much of a difference and can it be corrected with calibration? When I compared this model to the 4 TB model the base model seemed to be yellower.

                                          You can get the upgraded i5 for $1800. Its slightly faster than the baseline 13in MBP.

                                          Good question buddy. I am worried about the i5 chip too. But as he said its better and faster than the i7 2016 mac version then we should go ahead with the current i5 one.

                                          I’m planning on buying the base model with 1.4 GHz but I’m really doubtful on whether I should upgrade to i7 model or upgrade to 16gb ram.
                                          I’m really low on budget so I can only make do for one upgrade. I just started uni and I’m learning coding on various languages and deep learning/machine learning.
                                          Which one would you recommend for me?

                                            Personally, I get 16GB RAM because my workflow tends to max out or exceed 8GB. When I was first learning C++, I would have 20 browser tabs open googling everything because of how complicated the language is. Used 10.5GB, was insane. Same with photo editing (RAW), would often exceed 8GB. In general tho, filling your RAM just makes the OS move stuff to your SSD as swap but you can't magically get more storage so I prioritize the 256GB SSD first. DRAM prices should have dropped so $200 for an extra 8GB is excessive, agreed.

                                            @Infinity Labs Agreed, but about 16gb ram, it's hard to justify a 200 dollar price increase, unless I plan to sell in a few years, where I would assume 16 gb ram would help with a sale and could give you most of your money back

                                            Nono don't get the CPU upgrades. The only time you should ever even consider a CPU upgrade if if you get more cores. That only applies to the 15" Pro with the 6/8 core CPUs. Reason is you're paying hundreds of dollars for a couple hundred MHz bump, it's like maybe 5% at best and it's built on the same architecture. Higher tier CPUs aren't more efficient.

                                            I also wouldn't recommend going with 128GB storage, I usually recommend going 256GB SSD -> 16GB RAM -> more storage if needed. I can't really comment on machine learning but I really doubt a school would force their students to code something that requires a really powerful computer to even run. Doesn't make sense. If they do, they probably have a computer lab with Xeons and Quadros for performance.

                                            Cubei thanks a lot, but what should I stick to the 8gb ram itself though? I often keep hearing that you need a high/better ram for machine learning projects

                                            Buy the base, if you can upgrade to the 256gb version, do not buy the i7 model because often the laptop will turbo above the base clock, the performance increase is extremely minimal. Hope this helps =)

                                          Thank you for showing the laptop itself. I've seen reviewers filming their faces and talk the whole time, I HATE that. This is the reason I just subscribed.

                                            Well, I mean it's okay for reviewers to talk to the camera at some points in their videos, but I, as someone that is potentially going to buy this product, want to look at it and imagine myself using it, or in this case, sitting behind this laptop. If I already owned the device, or if I just wanted to know the technical information about it, it'd okay, but in most cases, users just want to look at the product and see if they like it; if you know what I mean.

                                            460 nits, not 416. Air measured in at 366 nits so it's quite a bit higher.

                                          87° and 91°C is hot. VERY HOT!!!!

                                          These are going to cook. 

                                          The battery will cook first but some of the chips and the PSU might go with it.

                                            But still the scale, if its Fahrenheit is that it is the same scale where Apple has said that 100° is too hot, just being underneath that is still not good for the hardware durability or safety and definitely is still uncomfortable hot in your lap.

                                          Do you recommend upgrading from the 2.4 ghz i5 to the 2.8 ghz i7? I have done research, and found that the performance bump is pretty small, and it costs $300 to upgrade. Debating whether to get the i5, 16 gb RAM, 256 SSD or i7, 16 gb RAM, 256 SSD. It seems weird to spend so much money on an i5, but it is a very powerful i5. What do you think?

                                            Nop, no way. CPU upgrades are the one thing I never purchase when picking options on a laptop unless you get more cores, but that only applies to the 15" with the 6 core and 8 core CPU options. The base clock is a lie because the base 1.4GHz CPU actually turbos to 2.6GHz consistently and it's not thermally restrained, it's power limited so the i7 is also limited to the ~28 watts it pulls under turbo boost. Might get like 5% better performance at best, not worth $2-300. My recommendation is 256GB SSD first, then 16GB RAM, then if you got extra cash you can put that towards an even larger SSD.

                                            Hi Garrett, in India we don't have the 16 GB model for this. Should I go with 8gb? My Main use cases are development and probably Netflix and internet browsing.

                                          i’m asking because i’ve seen complaints about the SSD speeds on this Macbook Pro. this model seems like its SSD performed a fair bit better than other 2019 entry level MBP/MBA models, especially models with the 128 GB storage option.

                                            The config I reviewed was the 1.4GHz base CPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. I do know that a lot of NVME SSDs tend to drop performance by quite a bit on 128 and 256GB capacities so that could apply with these drives as well, can’t confirm myself

                                              I hope so. I had a channel before this and at one point I pulled about 2 million views in a month, did really well. 100-300K views every video, I still watched other people's videos to see what I liked and what I would do to make my videos better. Eventually you get too many comments to reply to most, but I do try and read all of them and I'll apply any feedback I get. I'm thinking of eventually opening a Discord server, much easier to respond to questions and talk to people there.

And little tip for ya, the keyboard replacement program doesn't require you to be able to reproduce any keyboard issues when you take it in for repair. AND, to replace the keyboard requires them to also replace the speakers, trackpad and battery. Fresh batteries for 4 years, no AppleCare required!

                                            I am looking for a new computer for back to school this year, and the new releases made me excited to want to buy a new laptop.
                                            But as a student, which computer is better?

                                            The MacBook Air 2018 or 2019
                                            The MacBook Pro 2019

                                              Thx for replying!

                                              This is just a daily use for school, no hardworking stuff on it though. I feel like the Macbook Air 2019 is the one I'm getting for school and besides an IPad for notes :D

                                              For coding, it'll handle everything your school will ask you to create. I highly doubt a school would ask their students to create a massive 3D game that requires a powerful GPU to even run, wouldn't make any sense. Most of everyone in my programming classes use ultrabooks (no dedicated graphics), it'll be fine.

                                              Infinity Labs If I go to University and go study informatica so coding, programming etc. Do you think that this MacBook Pro will be okay for me or I have to take the 1800$ MBP ? I’m lost 😶

                                              If you can afford the Pro, get the Pro. The 2019 Air is really good, and I assure you that you won't find the Air lacking in any way to make you want a Pro instead. It's an excellent laptop by itself, however, I do think the extra $200 is worth it if it's within your budget.

                                              Both have the same keyboard, same speakers, trackpad, ports, battery life and portability. For a student, there's no real difference.

                                              Infinity Labs bought the same model, then got a external nvme drive enclosure for a nvme from a windows laptop I used to use to now boot into windows 10 on the MacBook for the times I need something with windows to do

                                              That way I don’t have to boot camp the built in 256gb ssd and loose space for windows

                                              256GB. Also running the base 1.4GHz CPU and 8GB RAM. Although, I do think 128GB is wayyy too little for the vast majority of people.

                                              In fact, just for you I ran the blackmagic speed test on the 2019 Air in case you wanted to know if those articles about the Air just reviewed a 128GB model (mine is 256GB). 970 MB/s write, 1395 MB/s read.
