13 inch MacBook Pro 2020 has finally arrived on Monday. It is Apple's latest notebook with a reliable magic keyboard. Three big changes can be noticed in Mac Book Pro 13 inch 2020 like a switch from butterfly keyboard to the scissor-switch Magic keyboard, double base storage (256 GB now) and 10th generation intel processor available in the high-end model. The 13 inch MacBook Pro is expected to provide a power boost with much better keyboard experience than in past.

Now let's explore Macbook Pro 13 inch 2020 in details.

MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020 reviews

MacBook Pro 13  has mostly built good news except for the people who still are debating between MacBook and a comparably-priced PC. But of course, Magic Keyboard feels great and 10th gen processor provides solid upgrades and even compete well with other MacBook series.

The issues, however, are battery life, bezels and weight which is easily beaten up by modern Windows 10 laptops. The frustration arises when Apple limits those new CPUs to the $1,799 model when intro-level MacBook starts at $1,299.

MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020 Magic keyboard

This can be viewed as the biggest upgrade for the MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020. In this model, Apple has discarded its troubled butterfly keyboard as in MacBook Air 2020 and MacBook Pro 16 inch 2019. This keyboard uses a redesigned scissor mechanism with 1mm of key travel.

The magic keyboard can be viewed as comfortable, fast and reliable. This layout has included an inverted- T arrangement which makes user easier to find. The touch bar is still present with touch ID and physical Esc key.

MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020 ports and designs

Talking about the design, sadly it doesn't offer a sleek new design. It includes the same 3-pound aluminium body as before. But it is slightly heavier and thicker than the previous model.

Bezels around the display look familiar to the new Dell XPS 13. We expect its redesign and more colour option. It comes in the same colour. i.e silver and space grey as before.

The starting model offers two Thunderbolt 3 ports. You will need to step up to the $1,799 configuration for four Thunderbolt 3 ports.

MacBook Pro 2020 includes the same Retina display as before but with better quality. Sharp 2560 x 1600 pixels of resolution along with 500 nits of brightness and wide colour (P3) support is included. It also supports Apple's True Tone technology which is capable of changing the temperature of the display based on ambient lighting conditions.

MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020 battery life

Apple has rated the MacBook Pro 13 inch with 10 hours of wireless web surfing and 10 hours of Apple TV app movie playback. But it can only be confirmed through the user's experiences.

MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020 outlook

The MacBook Pro 13 inch is not the major overhaul that we hoped based on rumours. Doubling the storage is a nice upgrade along with faster RAM and 10th gen processor. But you will have to spend $1,799 to enjoy these features which means MacBook Pro 13 inch 2020's price is truly costlier than similarly configured Windows laptops.
