    i'm watching this on my MacBook Pro 2019. i dreamed about having my own macbook since Highschool, but i can't afford it because it was too expensive, now i have my own job and after saving my salary for a year i finally bought a macbook. definitely worth it...
    Maybe you should make a performance comparison and real life test for the 2018 MacBook Pro 13" and 2019 Macbook Pro 13".

      Hi guys. Would you buy the base model with 16 gb ram and 256 ssd for 1750€ r go for the 2,4 ghz model?

        I got the same spec base model. I'm not doing any professional work and mainly use my laptop for productivity and movie watching.It's definitely going to last for the next 4/5 years.

          This is what a review should look like... not just spitting out specs and pretending you are using it. Thanks for this!

                    No one will probably see this but I’m looking for a Mac book for editing. I was interested in this one (1.4ghz) but should I go with the 2.4 ghz one? Is it worth it

                        Hey!! I need your help. With cyber Monday, Costco will be selling the 2019 MacBook Air and the 2019 MacBook Pro for $999. Difference is, the air comes with 256 while the pro is still stuck at 128gb. I don’t do many pro tasks, but I am trying to dabble in Lightroom maybe a couple times a month. I mainly do office things, and watch some streaming. I keep the majority of my photos on the cloud, and I stream most of my music. I tend to keep my computers for as long as I can; 5+ years. I guess my question is, do I go for power or storage? I hope someone out there can answer this for me.

                              Bought this, after hearing all the youtuber raving how good the base model is. Totally, regret it. Fast for a week, and when you want to get real work done, this crap is slow as hell. End up getting 2.8Ghz version with 16Gb Ram instead. Stay away from the base model!

                                If you have 2017 base model, then don`t go for 2019 base models.Just wait and then buy new 16 inch models if you are professional video editor, photographer or developer.

                                          I have a mid-2012 MacBook Pro and after updating to the latest OS, it’s slowed down pretty noticeably and I’m talking about simply opening apps and browsing the web. I want to buy a laptop for general use and school work but also play some games on them. I want to play games like Civilization 6, Europa Universalis 4, Age of Empires. Anyone know if this baseline MacBook Pro will play those kinds of games pretty well? I’m not talking about games like fortnite or stuff like that.

                                            Great video! I have a question : is it worth it to upgrade the memory on this Macbook (to 16gb) and/ or the processor (to 1.7GHz i7 with turbo boost to 4.5GHz)? I would be using it for music production, DJing and everyday use. What do you guys think?? Cheers!

                                                Your system info read out showed 16gbs of ram, so is this actually not the base spec?

                                                      yes , but fast isnt good , apple products are getting more idiot than before.
                                                      128gb for 1000+ buck laptop , did i am joke to ur apple >? working with huge product gonna requi u extra storage connected with tb3 - thats cost money ( shit apple)
                                                      remove usb type a connect are trully shit !!! just better good looking for more complex as fuck , now u have to use a fucking dongle instead of just plug it in ? with 2 tb3 basic version , u will have only 1 when ur MB connected with charger - and a dongle with MF certification wasnt cheap at all ,so spending money not just for a fine product isnt good to ur apple ?
                                                      edit : for touch bar , another useless stuff for basic user ,another stuff just for a good-looking ( yes apple said "pro" , but basic option MB with 2 TB isnt pro enough )
