2019 16-inch MacBook Pro: First Impressions and Benchmarks

After years of trying to make an iPad or iPad Pro work as a viable MacBook substitute, I finally decided this year that my next work computer would be a MacBook Pro rather than an iMac. Knowing about the keyboard issues with previous MacBook Pros, I also decided that I'd wait until the 16-inch MacBook Pro was released before making the switch from desktop to laptop.

The new laptop replaces the 15-inch MacBook Pro and starts at $2,799.
