Sadly, the MacBook Pro 15-inch 2019 isn’t the generational update we were hoping for. Perhaps because Apple was saving its major updates for the MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019), which came out shortly after, it has none of that massive redesign we’ve been waiting for. That makes it feel somewhat like an iteration of its predecessor.
Still, it doesn’t mean that the MacBook Pro 15-inch 2019 is devoid of important updates. It does boast the incremental changes in internals, as well as some new features that cements its status as an excellent professional laptop. It comes with more powerful specs and a much improved keyboard, both of which are welcome updates for MacBook Pro owners with a 2017 or older MacBook.
The MacBook Pro 15-inch 2019 still gave the win that Apple really needed in a time when all these impressive Windows laptops have raised the stakes in the Ultrabook category. It has certainly given Windows users more than enough reasons to switch to macOS.
There’s still not a lot of compelling reasons here for newer MacBook Pro owners to justify upgrading. MacBook Pro 15-inch 2019 is just the update you’ve been waiting for, but only if you have a much older model and want to stick to that 15-inch form factor. Otherwise, you might be better off with the 16-inch model.
