Apple MacBook Pro 13 (2020) review: The hobbyist

 

The latest 13-inch MacBook Pro features updated processors, a revamped keyboard, and some confusing configurations. So, does it earn in its pro designation?

Industry-leading display ; Thin and light design ; Excellent new keyboard ; Hard-as-rock build quality

Confusing processor choices ; Average battery life

Apple MacBook Pro review (13-inch, 2020): Easier to recommend

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro is the third and last laptop in Apple's lineup to receive an upgraded keyboard, meaning those much-maligned butterfly keys are now a thing of the past. In addition to a pleasant typing experience, the 13-inch MBP brings improved...

Much-improved keyboard ; Bright and colorful display ; Apple doubled the base storage ; Healthy battery life

Bottom side can get hot ; You have to buy at least the $1799 model to get 10th-gen Intel processors ; No discrete graphics option on the 13-inch model ; We still miss USB-A ports and the SD card reader ; Still not feeling the Touch Bar

Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020) review: return to baseline

 

Although Apple could do better on battery life, it's got a great keyboard and good performance.

New keyboard ; Faster processor on upgraded model ; Nice build quality

Average-at-best battery life ; Average-at-best webcam ; Bezels a little large by current standards

Apple has a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Magic Keyboard instead of the old butterfly mechanism. In this review, we test the 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor version. It runs macOS apps well, but it does better on both battery life and performance...

MacBook Pro 2020 (13-inch): release date, price, specs and keyboard

 

The MacBook Pro 2020 (13-inch) is officially here. Apple finally released its smallest Pro, and after the landmark year the flagship Apple laptop had last year, the MacBook Pro 2020 might be one of the most interesting launches yet – for better or worse.

It's kind of a shame that we didn't get a refresh of the 16-inch model, however. In our brief testing of laptops rocking the new 10th-gen Intel Comet Lake-H processors, we've seen much better performance along with some amazing battery life. Maybe...

MacBook Pro 2020 (13-inch) Review

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro gets important, incremental changes

Elegant design ; Solid performance ; Great keyboard ; Excellent SSD speeds ; Powerful speakers

A bit heavy ; Thick bezels ; Battery life could be longer

The MacBook Pro offers double the storage with great performance and the excellent Magic keyboard, but the battery life could be longer.

Apple MacBook Pro (2020) review: Adding a touch of magic?

 

The 13-inch MacBook Pro makes it 2020 return, complete with Touch Bar. But there's no larger screen option for this generation, so is it worth buying?

Magic Keyboard is a genuine improvement ; Great screen has all the brightness/colour/resolution you'll need ; Ample power and eGPU options via Thunderbolt

Doesn't move the design forward - where's the 14-inch rework? ; No Face ID login ; No discrete graphics ; So-so battery from 10th Gen configuration ; Pricey configurations

A modest update over the 2019 model, the 2020 Pro does bring a much-needed new keyboard design, but it's not the 14-inch reimagining that many had expected. Still, it's a great workhorse that's the right balance of performance and longevity.

MacBook Pro 13 2020 in Review: Apple's subnotebook only gets the mandatory update

 

Notebookcheck reviews the new 2020 Apple MacBook Pro 13 w/ 4x Thunderbolt 3. Except for the new keyboard, however, the update is pretty boring.

excellent case and build quality;huge trackpad with great precision;usually very quiet and cool operation;very good display with flawless scaling;very good speakers;4x Thunderbolt 3 w/ full bandwidth

no Wi-Fi 6;neither USB-A nor HDMI;bad webcam;very expensive – especially the upgrades;power supply reaches its limitations

MacBook Pro 13in (2020)

 

It might look the same, but the new MacBook Pro has a 10th-gen surprise under the hood. Question is, is it worth the price?

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020) review

 

The new MacBook Pro 13-inch delivers a great Magic Keyboard, blazing performance and long battery life — if you're willing to pay a premium.

Great performance ; Fantastic Magic Keyboard ; Long battery life ; Vibrant and colorful display

Bezels too thick ; Pricey to get 10th gen power ; Webcam could use upgrade

based on Apple Silicon, but there's no firm timetable. Bottom line: If you want a more powerful portable for work and play — which includes photo and video editing — the 13-inch MacBook Pro is a great choice.
