Display

 

The Retina display comes with a 13” screen size which features a bright LED backlighting which delivers deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide colour which produces more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB and delivers upto 25% more colours than sRGB with True Tone technology, which allows the white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature around us. The brightness can go up to 500 nits.

Performance

 

Weighing at just 1.4 Kgs, the MacBook Pro  13 inch 2020 is packed with heavy-duty performance.The quad-core 10th generation Intel Core i7 processor is so powerful that it can take any tough task and up to 80% more graphics performance with the powerful new Iris plus graphics. The new MacBook Pro 2020 can now be expanded up to 32 GB for faster performance. The fast SSD storage comes with 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB which is double that of the earlier generations and it can be expanded up to 4 TB which delivers speeds up to 3.0 GB/s

 

Magic Keyboard & Touch Bar

 

The newer generation MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020 has switched back to the older Magic keyboard which offers a 1 mm key travel, after receiving a lot of criticism from the newer butterfly keyboards. The new magic keyboards are simply a breeze to type on. The inverted T-arrows keys help you to navigate easily and the keys are backlit with ambient light sensors which adjusts to the light of the current environment, helping you to see better in low-light settings.

The force touch trackpad in the MacBook is one of the best. It is pressure sensitive and it can detect very subtle differences in pressure. You can interact by clicking on any side of the trackpad. It is very large also giving room for plenty of gestures from pinch to zoom. The new Touch Bar also provides easy access to many apps, which can be customised depending on our preference, providing easy access to shortcuts and controls.

 

Touch ID

 

The security has been simplified in the new MacBooks, in the older generations were you required to enter a password for each document and authorisations, is now done in a single touch with the advanced Touch ID sensor. You can immediately access locked documents, notes and system settings without entering a password.

Apple also features an advanced T2 security chip which makes it even more secure, so when you use Touch ID to authenticate a document your information always stays secure, it also keeps all your data in the SSD automatically encrypted.

 

Speakers & Camera 

 

The MacBook Pro 2020 has also advanced in the sound department also, the soundstage is more dynamic and the sounds feel much wider and movies are more immersive.

It has a three – microphone array that captures the voice very accurately. In the camera department, Apple is sticking with the old HD 720 p camera which is a little drawback when even their iPad line ups come with full HD advanced cameras.

Connectivity

 

The MacBook Pro 13  comes with two ultra high bandwidth and ultra-high versatile Thunderbolt 3 ports for the base model and 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports for the higher model, which delivers a 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2 ports. You can use each Thunderbolt 3 for charging, connecting up to 6K display, connecting storage drives, and other devices.A single port for every connection seems practical.

Operating System

 

The MacBook Pro 13  inch 2020 comes preinstalled with the latest Mac OS Catalina, which has a lot of features including the continuity feature, that is if you have an iPhone you can continue whatever task you have left on your iPhone like documents editing or emails, with ease on MacBook, and that is a very handy feature.
