The space gray mid 2018 Apple thirteen.3″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar has been upgraded with an Eighth Generation Intel Core processor, True Tone display technology that automatically adjusts white balance to match the color temperature of the surround light, Apple’s T2 coprocessor chip, and a quieter keyboard. All of this helps to create a more powerful and versatile system system for photographers, video editors, 3D graphic designers, gamers, and coders.
The Touch Bar 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 short, 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.
This system is powered by an Eighth Gen Coffee Lake 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core processor that features a burst speed of up to three.8 GHz, while 8GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly entry frequently-used files and programs. The system memory cannot be upgraded.
The thirteen.3″ IPS Retina display features a WQXGA 2560 x 1600 screen resolution with a 227 ppi pixel density. It has LED backlighting with a maximum brightness of 500 nits, and it includes support for the P3 wide color gamut. Integrated Intel Iris Graphics 655 delivers a pointy, clear picture, and you’ll also be capable of output video to an external display using the system’s Thunderbolt three ports, which feature native DisplayPort output. One Thunderbolt three port can support one 5K display at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 at 60 Hz, or dual UHD 4K displays at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz, each of which are capable of support over one thousand million colors. Also supported are dual displays at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 at 60 Hz with millions of colors.
For long-term storage of your files, this MacBook Pro is equipped with a 512GB PCIe SSD. If you want to add external peripherals, four Thunderbolt three ports support bi-directional transfer speeds of up to forty Gb/s, while also supporting 10 Gb/s USB three.1 and device charging. 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi 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, three microphones, stereo speakers, a sixty four-key backlit keyboard with four arrow keys, an ambient light sensor, and a huge Force Touch trackpad.
The thirteen.3″ MacBook Pro includes a 61W USB Type-C power adapter that operates using a hundred-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz, a 6.6′ USB Type-C charging cable, and a built-in 58Wh lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts for up to 10 hours before recharging is required – or up to 30 days of standby time.
This Mac comes preloaded with macOS. Updates can be downloaded for free via the Mac App Store. Please check Apple’s website for upgrade eligibility.
Processor – More Power At Its Cores
With an Eighth Intel Core processor, the MacBook Pro reaches higher heights in compute performance. The thirteen.3″ model now features a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core with up to three.8 GHz Turbo Boost speeds that are up to twice as fast as the previous generation. So when you’re powering through pro-level processing jobs like compiling code, rendering 3D models, adding special effects, layering multiple tracks, or encoding video, you’ll get everything done. Faster.
Memory – Run More, Wait Less
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the thirteen.3″ MacBook Pro can now be configured with up to 16GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory.
Graphics – Eye-Opening Performance
The thirteen.3″ model with Touch Bar features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM – twice as a good deal as the previous generation – which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most – creating your work.
Blackmagic eGPU – Desktop-Class Graphics
Blackmagic Design has created an external GPU (eGPU) for the MacBook Pro (sold separately). So you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the portability of a notebook. Housed in an all‑in‑one aluminum enclosure, the Blackmagic eGPU is powerful yet quiet, charges your MacBook Pro using Thunderbolt three, and has built-in I/O connections to drive both a Thunderbolt three display and VR add-ons simultaneously. With the Blackmagic eGPU and MacBook Pro, you can speed up pro apps, create VR content, and enjoy smooth gaming.
Apple T2 Chip
Introducing the Apple T2 chip, a 2nd‑generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Pro even more secure. Featured on the thirteen.3″ model with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 chip includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one. And the Apple T2 chip brings a well-known voice to MacBook Pro – Hey Siri is always able to open apps, find documents, play music, or answer your questions.
SSD Storage – Make Quicker Work of Everything
The MacBook Pro includes a superb-state drive that is fast, with sequential read speeds up to three.2 GB/s and sequential write speeds up to 2.2 GB/s. The thirteen.3″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is available with up to a 2TB SSD – enough space to take even your biggest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.
Thunderbolt three – A Powerful & Versatile Port
Thunderbolt three combines high bandwidth with the versatility of the USB Type‑C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to forty Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. Since Thunderbolt three is reversible, no matter how you plug in, it’s always right side up.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something a good deal more versatile and able. It changes automatically in line with what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use – system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a number of.
Tap It, Hold It, Flick It, Slide It
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while watching a movie.
Just What You Need, Right Where You Need It
Many Mac apps, such as Final Cut Pro X, Photos, Logic Pro X, Mail, and more have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you’re using, bringing these shortcuts front and center. And 0.33-party apps can take capabilities of the Touch Bar as well.
Customize What You Use Most
You can create shortcuts right in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari, and Final Cut Pro X to help you work faster and be more productive.
Touch ID – Advanced Security, Right At Your Fingertip
Unlock your Mac in an instant. Use Apple Pay to make secure online purchases. Quickly entry system settings and locked notes. And even switch between users – all with the touch of a finger.
Display & Audio – Easy On the Eyes, Music To Your Ears
The Retina display in MacBook Pro features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide color for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And this thirteen.3″ model with the Touch Bar features True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro also has beautifully balanced, high‑fidelity sound that takes listening to higher levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for increased boom. The speakers are connected directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification, so you can mix a track on the fly, edit video on location, or enjoy a movie on the go.
Keyboard and Trackpad – Your Workspace Just Got Quieter
The MacBook Pro keyboard features a butterfly mechanism – providing more key stability than a normal scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. This thirteen.3″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar now features a keyboard with a quieter typing experience, and the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers a whole lot of room to gesture and click.

Runs macOS High Sierra, successfully downgraded.
I bought the mid-2018 version so as to be guaranteed to be able to downgrade to macOS High Sierra, since the mid-2018 version originally shipped with that. Even so, it came pre-installed with Mojave and I jumped through many hoops trying to downgrade it while it repeatedly refused. I eventually was successful by completely wiping the internal SSD, reinitializing the file system as HFS+, and restoring a Time Machine backup of my iMac onto it. Now it is a clone of my iMac running High Sierra, both running off of HFS+ SSDs, and I am very happy with it.Read full review...
